French term or phrase: Le triple rugit par le son du silencieux racing
This comes from a short piece written by motorbike enthusiasts on their experiences on the road with their bikes. Can anyone help? This isn't my field and I am doing this as a favour.

comes from the following:
Nous voila partis en ce petit matin frileux ( tout juste 2 degres) d'octobre pour arpenter les contre-forts du Mont Ventoux accompagné par un 1400GTR flambant neuf!

Les 2 machines ronronnent de leurs 3 et 4 cylindres!

Le triple rugit par le son du silencieux racing

Thank you very much in advance, I think I will have a few more queries relating to this later on.

Thanks for your time.

agree  chris collister: Yes, Charles, but probably not triples these days. I prefer singles myself.

  -> As far as I'm concerned the racket is unspeakable however many cylinders they have. V12 sports cars can be just as bad.

agree  Tony M: Make mine a double!
