Need inside trader info Triumph Rocket 3

Rumor- The Rocket 3 will not be made for a couple years!
Moving factory blah blah blah
Does this mean done?
Over?
Who is in the know?
Who can we send in to find out?

Seems like a common internet rumor dating as far back as 2011. Many threads in 2016 say the same; can't pass Euro4 Emission Reg's.......Wiki sez on the "Touring" model discontinued in 2017....Never know what to believe........Common not to announce the death of a model early, they still want to sell current inventory.

Yup!
Been there and watching.
I am waiting for them to get a trade in as I want the touring model.
Thanx!

No disrespect but how many people want a two liter 700 pound motorcycle? I'm surprised it lasted this long.
In my google search I saw ads for the 2018 Rocket 3, but that may just be old stock they are trying to move.

Its is not that heavy compared to Gold wings and dressers
My RK weighs just about that.
I believe this F6B is near 900 lbs

To each their own, if you are comfortable with that big of a bike more power to ya!

I visited the Honda dealer to check out their diminutive 500cc twin as a possible commuter bike... I sat on a 750 sport bike and it felt huge.
