What Is It?

The Triumph Thunderbird Commander is a premium cruiser style bike with more traditional US cruiser styling. It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,699 cc 270º parallel twin engine, producing 92.5 bhp at a low 5,400 rpm and maximum torque at just 3,550 rpm.

Features include:

  • Belt final drive
  • Tubular Steel frame and swingarm
  • Dual 310 mm discs with Nissin four piston calipers
  • 310 mm disc at the rear with Brembo two piston caliper
  • ABS system
  • 47 mm Showa fork with 120 mm travel
  • Dual Showa rear shocks with adjustable pre-load and 109 mm travel
  • Chromed 2->1->2 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the base Thunderbird you get the new chassis, larger 1,699 cc engine, a 17" front wheel rather than a 19", wider front tyre, more travel at the rear from Showa shocks, an adjustable fork, touring seat and floorboards but it's 9 kg heavier.

The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a 140/75 tyre at the front and a fat 200/50 at the rear.

Accessories include the tall screen, leather panniers (£520), heated grips (£153), pillion backrest (£155), rear rack (£102), headlight cowl and dresser bars.

Colours: Black, black/grey, red/silver
