Wake up ur dreaming not thinking

http://www.triumphrocket.com/

0-60 in 2.8s
0-100 in 7.2s
0-120 in 12.3s(read that somewhere too)

I was as surprised after looking at the numbers as some of the fellow members on here so I dont blame anyone for not believing. kinda expected that.

For those of you who have ridden it, you know its fast :icon_smil

I test rode one and I can tell you that it has a lot of torque reaction. When you turn left it is fine but right turns it wants to fight, especially if you roll on the gas while leaned.
It is fast but handles like a 700 lb. 2300 cc bike.

my opinion but with that big of an engine it would be faster in the quarter mile. I know it's mega heavy and has big #s but it;s like they gave no thought to performance, just make it big.
With the mega bucks spent on developing the v-rod you would also think it would be faster in the quarter mile but my 19 year old v-max still has better times.
now adays it's about the biggest and not the best i guess
