The hilarious Triumph Rocket III video

3From way back in 2007, here’s one of the motor industry’s earliest viral videos: Triumph’s sendup of its own Rocket III.  It’s still great fun, check it out. 

 

 

This video doesn’t require a whole lot of explanation or setup, just a little backstory. For the 2007 introduction of the Classic cruiser model of its Rocket III, the world’s largest-displacement motorcycle, Triumph decided not to take itself too seriously.

Instead, the venerable British bike boffins inserted their tongues firmly in their cheeks, got their Monty Python on, and produced the video you see here. Motorcycle enthusiasts rewarded the lighthearted effort with well over a million YouTube hits, and seven years on the clip is still good, silly fun. Enjoy.

  1. A close friend bought one of the first ones available and the following summer we did an Iron Butt from Iowa to Georgia, visited Tybee Island at Savannah and returned via Bowling Green Ohio where we visited his brother. Every Harley was fair game that we encountered. He passed away that fall, a good friend and a great person and he is missed.
