The latest cruiser to grace the Indian roads is the Triumph Thunderbird LT. It is loaded with features and promises effortless cruising. We have a road test of the motorcycle coming up here soon. Till then, you can chew on these images of the big cruiser.

IMG_7053The Thunderbird LT is a 'light tourer' that Triumph built to break the stranglehold that Harley-Davidson have on the American cruiser market

IMG_6730Like the classic tourer that it hopes to better, the beautiful Triumph has clean lines with large fenders, a cushy seat, tall wide bars and a sea of chrome

IMG_6923We were so comfortable on this behemoth that we only turned around after putting 400 kilometres on the odo

IMG_6632Thumb the starter and the 1699cc parallel twin sparks to life with a burble

IMG_6626The Triumph scores great on comfort and the multiple density cushion seat is one of the most comfortable perches on a motorcycle

IMG_6648A closer look at the pillion perch

IMG_6595Large dials are simple and easy to read

IMG_6615White walled tyres scream classic

IMG_6662The 270 degree firing order does give the twin a distinct v-twin like off beat note but it's a fairly soft tune

IMG_6711You can see the road over the tall windscreen rather than having to look through it, which is great in general and crucial in rain

IMG_6817For such a large motorcycle, the Triumph handles really well but like all cruisers, it grinds its floorboards way too soon

IMG_7085It can hold faster speeds but over 140kmph, the vibrations and the wind noise becomes a distraction
