2014 Triumph Thunderbird LT first look

Team OD Published: September 15, 2014, 03:20 PM IST

The Thunderbird LT is essentially a more touring friendly version of the Thunderbird Storm that is currently available in India. The LT gets a healthy helping of chrome while white wall radial tyres running on spoke wheels add to the classic cruiser theme. In keeping with the touring theme, the LT gets a tall windscreen, two auxiliary lamps, and smart leather saddlebags as well as a backrest for the pillion. The saddlebags can hold upto 26 litres of luggage while the 22-litre fuel tank should make sure you can go a fair distance before needing to fill up.

The 349kg motorcycle runs the same liquid-cooled 1699cc parallel twin from the Thunderbird Storm. This is actually the largest production parallel twin engine on any motorcycle today. It produces 94PS and a massive 146Nm of torque at just 2,750rpm. The LT uses a six-speed gearbox and final drive is via a belt. A 180 section tyre at the rear helps put all that power down while the front gets a massive 150 section, just like on the Rocket III roadster.
