Think of Hollywood star and wrestler Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock, and one of the first things that will come to your mind is the muscle. Interestingly, if you are a lover of motorcycles and if you were to think of 'muscle' then chances are that one of the first names that come to mind will be the Triumph Rocket III Roadster.

The Rocket III is one of those bikes whose name was probably kept after the way it feels to ride, which is, like a Rocket. It is powered by the largest production motorcycle engine in the world – a 2294cc in-line three cylinder engine that delivers 148 Ps of power and a massive 221 Nm of torque – that's more than some of the SUVs out there right now. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the bike weighs 334 kilos dry. That's not it, this beast will cost you almost 21.92 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). How's that for big numbers?

The actor recently did an Instagram post with the Triumph.

Hell on wheels. 800 lbs. 2,300 cc of hog. We've been prepping RAMPAGE now for over a year. Production finally starts shooting in 4 weeks. This two wheel mayhem causer will be one of my rides in the film. We'll matte black everything and beat it up. It's a little too clean right now we'll get it there. Thank you #TriumphMotorcycles for delivering the Rocket 3 beast to our Ballers set. We shoot RAMPAGE in Chicago and Atlanta so if the good people of those great cities see me riding around on this, then throw a ✌🏾sign and say "what up Rock daddeh". But don't expect me to throw a ✌🏾sign back because I might crash and look like an asshole. You guy'll really gonna dig this next one. Excited to make it for you. The quintessential massive monster movie... #Rampage #HellOnWheels #LetsHaveSomeFun ✊🏾

The bike will be used for Dwayne Johnson's upcoming venture - Rampage. The Rock also talked about how he wants to give the bike an all-black look and how it's a little too clean right now. We can't wait for him to spruce it up. Watch this space for updates.
