Triumph Motorcycles India expanded its product line up by unveiling their premium classic cruiser from their global range, the Thunderbird LT (Light Touring). The demand generated post the introduction of 11 international models earlier this year and the overwhelming customer feedback received has fuelled this exciting new launch. Its more than a lovely bike find out………
The iconic British motorcycle manufacturer offered it with a retro appeal, complete with chrome accents and leather saddle bags for some old school cruising; albeit with a modern heart. The cruiser gets a single unit headlamp with two auxiliary lamps at the sides along with a tall windscreen.
Triumph has added oodles of chrome to the motorcycle, extending to the twin-cylinder engine, twin exhaust units and also the old school spoke wheels to complete the authentic cruiser look. Furthermore, there is also the inclusion of a back rest for the pillion rider, while the leather saddle bags come with a storage capacity of around 26-litres.
Another factor making the Thunderbird LT special are the white walled tyres that complete the retro appeal on the cruiser. The ergonomics feature a completely redesigned, reshaped seat, with deeper foam padding and lumbar support for maximum comfort, while maintaining a low seat height to accommodate all sizes of rider.
Don’t think it’s a old Guy toy because despite the old school packaging, the bike does not lose modern benefits and comes with a classic analog styled instrument console coupled with an LCD multi-information display unit. The Thunderbird LT comes with a tank capacity of 22-litres, making sure of less stops during tours. I think Arnold should have dumped Harley in Terminator and Should ride this classic beauty instead of Harley, What You say?
The Thunderbird LT is the 1699cc parallel twin-motor which is the world’s largest parallel twin engine. It produces 94 PS of power at 5400 RPM and a massive 151 Nm of torque at 3550 RPM, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The cruiser gets 47 mm forks at the front and twin shocks with 5-way preload adjustment at the rear. Stopping power on the other hand comes from twin disc brakes at the front and a single disc at the rear, with ABS offered as standard.
The Thunderbird will be available in two colours in India: Caspian Blue / Crystal White and Lava Red / Phantom Black. The Triumph Thunderbird LT is being brought in as a completely built unit (CBU) in India and that is the reason for its high pricing or it will be priced at 12lakhs but for now you have to Pay 15.75 lakhs. With the launch of Thunderbird LT, Triumph Motorcycles now have 12 motorcycles on sale in the Indian market. Triumph Motorcycles currently has 8 functional dealerships across the country: New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Chennai, Bangalore & Hyderabad.
