Its distinctive, charismatic parallel twin engine and classleading chassis can turn every journey into the trip of a lifetime. The new Thunderbird LT will transport you with effortless power and style to new adventures with the easygoing, laidback vibe of a premium classic touring cruiser.
The motive force at the heart of the new Thunderbird LT is the World’s largest parallel twin motorcycle engine, as found in the existing Thunderbird Storm and based on the original Thunderbird.
Whether crossing continents or on a Sunday morning run, the LT’s awesome engine potential is harnessed by a progressive throttle, highly accurate fuel mapping, cuttingedge sequential fuel injectors, a positive sixspeed gearbox. The result, from the top end of first gear to the bottom end of top gear, is an unrivalled ride in this class.
At 1699cc, the LT’s eightvalve DOHC motor produces 94PS at 5400rpm and a whopping 151Nm of torque at a lowly 3550rpm. The enormous thrust from its pair of saucersized forged pistons and uneven, longstroke 270° firing interval create a classic bigtwin feel, perfect for propelling the you over long distances with a natural, easygoing groove.
The Thunderbird LT has a belt drive for low maintenance and long life.
To match the quality of its ride, the LT’s tapered trioval exhaust cans aren’t just built to look good, they’re especially tuned to give a rewarding, rich sound.

No matter what you’ve ridden before, you’ll feel instantly at ease with the LT, able to relax and enjoy the ride for many thousands of miles to come.
Shrouded 47mm Showa forks and twin 5way preload adjustable Showa rear shocks provide excellent feedback with supple control to ensure a quality ride over the harshest surfaces.
ABSenabled fourpot Nissin callipers on 310mm floating discs up front and a single Brembo calliper and 310mm disc at the rear give sensitive, yet powerful, braking under all conditions.
The Thunderbird LT remains true to our core value of outstanding handling in all situations. As the result of careful development work on its steering geometry, the LT is no exception and delivers light, neutral steering, low speed agility, yet maintains stability at all speeds and in all types of conditions. Combined with a great degree of manageability, it’s an easy bike to ride for any rider.
Wheels and Tyres
Our engineers turned to British tyre manufacturer Avon with whom we jointly developed the World’s first and only whitewall radial for the dramatic look of fatsection 150/80 16inch front and 180/70 16inch rear tyres on wire 56spoked rims.
A dynamic engine with dynamic styling demands an equally dynamic chassis; one which reflects our belief that every bike, whatever its style, should be agile yet stable, have predictable, neutral steering and superior suspension and brakes. The Thunderbird LT is no exception to that rule.
The high quality rider and pillion footboards are made from chromeplated, highpressure diecast aluminium, featuring replaceable skid plates and an adjustable heel/toe gear lever for the rider.
Triumph’s antilock brake system comes as standard. and the ABSassisted brakes ensure stopping is quick and efficient.
Rider and pillion seat foam is a doublelayer, dualdensity material, soft and receptive on first feel but compressing to give a firmer, supportive yet pliant ride. The rider’s seat has also been especially shaped with wide, flared sides and a lumbar support to provide maximum comfort even at the end of a long day’s ride. The cover material contains a degree of elasticity so that it ‘gives’ as the seat compresses, maintaining the ideal shape and reducing uncomfortable pressure points.
