British two-wheeler manufacturers Triumph Motorcycles have had a dream start to their Indian operations, with the brand receiving an overwhelming response from Indian bike enthusiasts. The company has now expanded their Indian range by including a new motorcycle, the 2015 Thunderbird LT.
The Thunderbird LT is the third cruiser model in Triumph’s lineup alongside the Thunderbird Storm and the Rocket III Roadster. It is powered by a 1699cc parallel twin-cylinder engine that delivers roughly 93 bhp of power at 5408 rpm and 151 Nm of torque at an extremely low 3550 rpm. The two-wheeler puts to use a 6-speed engine gearbox, which transfers power to the rear wheel via belt drive.
‘LT’ stands for light touring, and the bike is designed for just that. It comes with a windscreen, saddle bags with a capacity of 26 litres, ABS and two distinctive ancillary lamps on either side of the headlamp. The petrol tank can hold up to 22 litres of fuel. It sits tight on 150-section and 180-section 16-inch wheels on the front and rear ends respectively, which should offer stellar stability.
The Triumph Thunderbird LT is priced at Rs 15,75,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) and will be available in Jet Black, Lava Red Phantom Black and Caspian Blue Crystal White. The bike is now the second most-expensive model that the company has on offer in the country, after the Rocket III Roadster.
