The Triumph Thunderbird's dynamic engine demands an equally dynamic chassis with handling developed as a priority, not an afterthought. As a result, all Thunderbirds can supply relatively high levels of agility, control and precision usually unheard of in a cruiser, with plenty of ground clearance for when the ride gets interesting.
THUNDERBIRD AND THUNDERBIRD STORM
The Triumph Thunderbird and Thunderbird Storm share an underlying chassis, but they’re two very different breeds of muscle cruiser. The Triumph Thunderbird is the original, laid-back, relaxed, chromed-up classic street cruiser using a torque-rich parallel twin engine to sweep you off your feet and get you where you want to be in life, every time. The Triumph Thunderbird Storm, on the other hand, is blacked-out, mean-streets cruiser that uses its enlarged motor to hammer out even more gut-wrenching bottom-end performance.
THUNDERBIRDS STIR EMOTIONS
Style matters, which is why the Triumph Thunderbirds stir emotions visually as well as on the road. From mechanical highlights like machined cooling fins, chrome covers and careful exhaust routing, to the aesthetics of diamond-turned cast wheels or wire spokes, deep fenders, hand-painted coach lines and lustrous body-colours, each Thunderbird is built with the quality and detailing you’d expect of a prestige Triumph cruiser.
So whether you prefer the LT’s classic touring cruiser stance or the clean, elegant style of the Thunderbird Commander, you know your bike looks as good to everyone else as it does to you.
We squeezed 102cc more from the muscle-bound parallel twin engine so that it packs an even bigger punch. Still laid-back but underpinned by serious power and the best handling in the class. This is a cruiser with a dark side.
Its distinctive, charismatic parallel twin engine and class-leading chassis can turn every journey into the trip of a lifetime. The 2014 Thunderbird LT will transport you with effortless power and style to new adventures with the easy-going, laid-back vibe of a premium classic touring cruiser.
