Rocket III Touring bike
features custom audio package
Avid motorcyclist John Viscomi of Brook Park, Ohio, was so surprised that he won a customized Triumph Rocket III Touring motorcycle with more than $2,000 in custom audio equipment that he did his own due diligence with Triumph to confirm it wasn’t a hoax. Now, all of John’s reservations are in his rear view mirror as he took delivery of this special Triumph from Carl Peshoff of Northern Ohio Triumph in Akron, Ohio.
Viscomi’s new Triumph features a satellite radio with a SiriusXM SkyDock that can be run from an iPhone or iTouch. If the iPhone is used, Viscomi has access to Internet radio, music library, GPS navigation and any other apps he wishes to use. That feeds into a Kenwood XR-4S digital 4-channel amplifier (two channels for the front speakers and two channels for rear speakers) with about 600W in this configuration. Four Kenwood 6 1/2-inch eXcelon speakers are housed in the custom front Hoppe Industries fairing and a Kenwood 10-inch eXcelon subwoofer is in a leather upholstered, custom-fabricated enclosure where the luggage rack would normally be.
There’s also an Escort QI45 radar detection system and an Escort CIS GPS Tracking System that allows Viscomi to track his motorcycle via computer, which is great for reviewing his ride histories.
“We’re very happy to welcome John to the Triumph family, and we know he’s going to have a great time putting miles on his new bike and sharing stories with the many other Triumph owners,” Peshoff said.
The full audio system was designed and built by Al & Ed’s Autosound in Northridge, Calif. Al & Ed’s is more than 50 years old and has performed more than 2 million installations.
