Boldly Going Where No Seat Maker Has Gone Before

Mustang’s Latest Enterprise: Launching The Rocket III Touring Seat

Rocket IIITime for us to tackle the final frontier… at least the space where Triumph motorcycles are concerned. We already make seats for the Bonnevilles in all their various configurations and the big Thunderbirds, but now the enterprising crew at Mustang continues to boldly go where no aftermarket seat maker has gone before! The trek is now complete for Triumph’s touring star as we have launched our line of seats for the Rocket III Touring model.

IMG_1625-smTriumph’s “power tourer” has a massive 2.3 litre three-cylinder engine built for interstellar travel. No question that the Rocket has more than enough motor to blast off, but when it comes to the long haul, the seat can become a pain in the posterior! With the world’s largest production motorcycle engine on tap, the Rocket III is ready for long hauls, heavy loads and going across the cosmos (or at least cross country). No touring bike has more torque than the Rocket III — it has more torque at idle than most motorcycles have in total!  Out of this world torque is great, but for all day comfort, you really need a Mustang seat.

Not only are our seats built for comfort, Mustang’s two-piece seat for the Triumph Rocket III Touring sets the rider a half inch lower than stock and almost an inch further back than the stock position. The combination of controlled density polyurethane cushion and the more relaxed riding position make a real difference for the long haul.

The wide 17″ bucket and the 12″ passenger seat provide long-term support for your longest treks. The built-in backrest helps keep you at the conn much longer as well. As part of their five year mission, Mustang’s enterprising engineering crew has also created an array of styling options and accessories to match the Rocket III Touring seats, including fender and tank bibs. As you explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations on your Rocket III Touring treks, make sure you have a Mustang seat along for the voyage!shatner_motorcycle
