Triumph’s striking new 2014 Thunderbird LT (Light Touring) has been developed for the classic touring cruiser market, which appreciates retro styling, world-class engineering and great handling.
Broad chrome embellishers on the new mudguards, generous chrome highlights around the windshield and yokes, single front headlight and massive wire-spoked wheels are just a few of the style motifs of the new LT.
Elsewhere, the LT boasts one-off Triumph tank badges, white piping around the sumptuous seat, a 1930s art deco-style rear indicator and LED tail light assemblies.
An eye-catching pair of removable leather saddle bags, auxiliary spot lamps and the World’s first white-walled radial tyres riding on wide, wire-spoked rims, all come as standard item on the LT.
The LT comes with a look-over windshield which is secured firmly in place by spring-loaded retainers yet, when unlocked, can be detached by hand in a matter of seconds to give a completely different look and feel to the bike.
The high quality rider and pillion foot-boards feature replaceable skid plates and an adjustable heel/toe gear lever for the rider.
Handlebars are slightly raised, sweeping back across the tank for a classic custom cruiser feel which delivers the bar grips at a sensible, comfortable angle.
The Thunderbird LT shares the Commander’s powerplant which at 1699cc, produces 94PS at 5400rpm and a huge 151Nm of torque at just 3550rpm.
Matching features of the Commander the Thunderbird LT includes a coded key immobiliser and a massive 22 litres fuel tank.
Available from authorised Triumph dealers in Spring 2014, the Thunderbird LT is available in Caspian Blue / Crystal White or Lava Red / Phantom Black.
