Features

Riding Position

No matter what you’ve ridden before, you’ll feel instantly at ease with the LT, able to relax and enjoy the ride for many thousands of miles to come.

Suspension

Shrouded 47mm Showa forks and twin 5-way preload adjustable Showa rear shocks provide excellent feedback with supple control to ensure a quality ride over the harshest surfaces.

Brakes

ABS-enabled four-pot Nissin callipers on 310mm floating discs up front and a single Brembo calliper and 310mm disc at the rear give sensitive, yet powerful, braking under all conditions.

Handling

The Thunderbird LT remains true to our core value of outstanding handling in all situations.  As the result of careful development work on its steering geometry, the LT is no exception and delivers light, neutral steering, low speed agility, yet maintains stability at all speeds and in all types of conditions.  Combined with a great degree of manageability, it’s an easy bike to ride for any rider.

Wheels and Tyres

Our engineers turned to British tyre manufacturer Avon with whom we jointly developed the World’s first and only white-wall radial for the dramatic look of fat-section 150/80 16-inch front and 180/70 16-inch rear tyres on wire 56-spoked rims.

Frame

A dynamic engine with dynamic styling demands an equally dynamic chassis; one which reflects our belief that every bike, whatever its style, should be agile yet stable, have predictable, neutral steering and superior suspension and brakes. The Thunderbird LT is no exception to that rule.

Footboards

The high quality rider and pillion foot-boards are made from chrome-plated, high-pressure die-cast aluminium, featuring replaceable skid plates and an adjustable heel/toe gear lever for the rider.

ABS

Triumph’s anti-lock brake system comes as standard. and the ABS-assisted brakes ensure stopping is quick and efficient.

Seat

Rider and pillion seat foam is a double-layer, dual-density material, soft and receptive on first feel but compressing to give a firmer, supportive yet pliant ride. The rider’s seat has also been especially shaped with wide, flared sides and a lumbar support to provide maximum comfort even at the end of a long day’s ride. The cover material contains a degree of elasticity so that it ‘gives’ as the seat compresses, maintaining the ideal shape and reducing uncomfortable pressure points.

Tank

A massive 22 litres fuel tank with off-centre filler cap.

Instruments

Tank-mounted dash console including classic analogue-style speedometer, a fuel gauge and an LCD with range-to-empty, twin trips, odometer and clock functions, conveniently scrollable via a handlebar-mounted button.

Overview

The motive force at the heart of the new Thunderbird LT is the World’s largest parallel twin motorcycle engine, as found in the existing Thunderbird Storm and based on the original Thunderbird.

Configuration

Whether crossing continents or on a Sunday morning run, the LT’s awesome engine potential is harnessed by a progressive throttle, highly accurate fuel mapping, cutting-edge sequential fuel injectors, a positive six-speed gearbox. The result, from the top end of first gear to the bottom end of top gear, is an unrivalled ride in this class.

Performance

At 1699cc, the LT’s eight-valve DOHC motor produces 94PS at 5400rpm and a whopping 151Nm of torque at a lowly 3550rpm.  The enormous thrust from its pair of saucer-sized forged pistons and uneven, long-stroke 270° firing interval create a classic big-twin feel, perfect for propelling the you over long distances with a natural, easy-going groove.

Belt Drive

The Thunderbird LT has a belt drive for low maintenance and long life.

Sound

To match the quality of its ride, the LT’s tapered tri-oval exhaust cans aren’t just built to look good, they’re especially tuned to give a rewarding, rich sound.
