What Is It?

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

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and swingarm
  • Dual 310mm discs with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 310mm disc at the rear with Brembo single piston caliper
  • ABS system
  • 47mm Showa fork with 120mm travel
  • Dual Showa rear shocks with adjustable pre-load and 95mm travel
  • Chromed 2->1->2 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the standard Thunderbird you get ABS, the engine is the 1,700cc 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).

Colours: Black, grey, red

Base model 1600/1700 (2009 On): 1,600cc, single headlight and lots of Chrome.

Nightstorm (2015 On): Special Edition Storm with blacked out exhausts, mirrors, custom paint job, Showa shocks and premium seat.

Commander (2014 On): More touring oriented with 17" front wheel, Showa shocks, adjustable fork and floorboards.

LT (2014 On): Fully dressed Commander with 16" spoked wheels, white walled tyres, screen, panniers, pillion backrest and 3 front lights.
