Fans of the quest for 400 mph who live in the Dallas area will want to hit the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) to see the Triumph Castrol Rocket streamliner in person at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center this weekend, January 23–25.
This bullet has its tip pointed at surpassing the current motorcycle land speed record of 376.156 mph on its way to the ultimate prize of 400 mph. Utilizing two Carpenter Racing tuned Triumph Rocket III engines, this beast pumps out 1,000+ horsepower as well as over 500 lb.-ft. of torque. The carbon Kevlar monocoque chassis stretches to a 25.5 ft. length and is impressive to behold.
The display will be open from 1:00–6:00 PM Friday, 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM on Saturday, and 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Sunday. In addition to seeing this carbon fiber-wrapped bullet, attendees can enter a Triumph raffle for a US tour grand prize of $5,000 gift certificate to be used to buy Triumph parts, accessories, clothing and merchandise at shop.triumphmotorcycles.com.
