2015 Triumph Thunderbird Storm ABS
Less chrome, more power and more attitude. The Thunderbird Storm comes with a 1700cc engine and hard-edged style.
Based on our original Thunderbird, the Storm keeps the pure Triumph twinned headlights but adds a low, blacked out look that’s mean and minimalist for massive street presence backed up by huge torque and confident handling.
We squeezed 102cc more from the muscle-bound parallel twin engine so that it packs an even bigger punch. Still laid-back but underpinned by serious power and the best handling in the class. This is a cruiser with a dark side. Features May Include:
We took the 1597cc parallel twin from the Thunderbird and boosted its capacity to 1699cc with 3.3mm bigger pistons in huge, 107.1mm bores. So the Thunderbird Storm does have a classic-looking engine that packs a mighty punch, but that power is delivered smoothly thanks to twin balance shafts.
Despite the air-cooled appearance, the Thunderbird Storm engine is liquid-cooled. We placed its radiator unobtrusively between the frame downtubes and the fat, twin exhaust headers.
And there’s plenty more 21st century technology tucked away too, like our highly accurate sequential fuel injection system with its progressive throttle linkage so you get power predictably and smoothly.
The Thunderbird Storm has a big black engine with upright cylinders and machined cooling fin edges to help define its imposing shape.
Many other parts of the Thunderbird Storm are black. Including the rear springs and headlight bowls.
The final drive is an inverted tooth belt with carbon fibre strands to give it a higher tensile strength than steel. While the pulleys have a patented ultra-hard coating that minimises wear so that the whole belt drive system needs very little attention. It’s really quiet and clean too.
6 Speed Gear Box
The transmission uses a six-speed gearbox with a tall top ratio for relaxed highway cruising and exceptional fuel efficiency.
We gave the Thunderbird Storm fat 47mm diameter forks with plenty of travel at 120mm. And the rear shocks are adjustable for spring preload so you can set the bike up to suit your load or riding style.
