What Is It?

The Triumph Thunderbird LT is a premium cruiser style bike and is 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. Like a number of other cruisers final drive is via belt.

The wire-spoked 16" wheels takes a 150/80 tyre at the front and a 180/70 at the rear.
