What Is It?

The Triumph Thunderbird Storm is a premium cruiser style bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 1,699 cc 270º parallel twin engine, producing 96.6 bhp at 5,200 rpm and maximum torque at just 2,950 rpm. Like a number of other cruisers final drive is via belt.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular 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 95 mm travel

Compared to the standard Thunderbird you get ABS, the engine is the 1,700 cc Big Bore version, the shocks / fork / wheels are blacked out, there are Rocket III style dual headlights and the handlebars are lower.

The 5-spoked 19" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear 17" a fat 200/50.

Accessories include tall screen, leather panniers (£520), touring seat (£310), heated grips (£153), rider backrest, pillion backrest (£155), rear rack (£102), headlight cowl, dresser bars and floorboards (£205).
