Laid back and relaxed, the Thunderbird is exactly the way a cruiser should be. But, on top of that, Triumph engineering has added superior performance and handling without ever diluting what the Thunderbird is all about. The engine itself is unique in its class, a classic Triumph parallel-twin. And the styling is pure cruiser with sweeping lines, low seat and high bars. But like any Triumph it's highly practical too, and perfectly feasible as an everyday commuter. A long, low, fat-tired, chromed up, everyday commuter.
