Both the bikes use the same massive 2,500 cc triple engine which delivers a ground-shaking 221Nm of peak torque. The torque is experienced at 4,000 rpm and the maximum power figure of 167 PS has been recorded at 6,000 rpm. The engine propels the Rocket 3 R across the 0-60 mph sprint line in just 2.72 seconds.
The powertrain on the limited-edition bikes also comes painted in black and carries a dark theme in line with the overall appeal of the bikes. The transmission option includes a high-performance six-speed helical-cut gearbox and a "torque assist' hydraulic clutch.
