2018 Triumph Custom Rocket 3 Bobber


Extraordinary. Unique. Ultimate. Legendary. Everything you’ve heard about the Triumph Rocket III is true. With sheer force of presence, the Rocket III uses the world’s largest production motorcycle engine to deliver an experience unmatched on two wheels.

The Triumph Rocket III: believe in the unbelievable.

Our BLACK BESS takes this to the next level.

Originally a 2010 R3 Roadster - BESS spent over 12 months at the Gasoline Motor Co. in Sydney, Australia being stripped back to her bare bones and reborn as a ‘one of a kind’ custom themed bobber.

Named after another famous British Steed - Black Bess, the Highwayman Dick Turpin’s famous mare, our BLACK BESS takes her styling from a combination of the Brough Superior SS80 (Black Bess) and the power of Turpin’s mare - at full gallop - with flowing mane and unstoppable power..
