It’s a name drenched in Triumph history. Thunderbird.
From its debut in 1949, to the 1950 version Marlon Brando rode in The Wild One, to the three-cylinder 885cc models from the 1990s, the Thunderbird name has always occupied a special place in the hearts of Triumph fans. So it was with great care that the latest versions, the 1600cc Thunderbird and 1700cc Thunderbird Storm, were developed.
Clearly, this dedication and attention to detail hasn’t gone unnoticed. Since its reintroduction in 2009, the Thunderbird has quickly garnered an impressive amount of accolades and awards, including the 2009 and 2010 Cycle World Cruiser of the Year, Motorcyclist Magazine’s Best Cruiser 2010 and Motorcycle.com’s World Cruiser Shootout 2011, among many others.
Stop by your Triumph dealer today and see what all the fuss is about. With class-leading power, torque and a style all its own, the Thunderbird has truly earned its legendary name.
