Triumph has launched the Thunderbird LT (Light Touring) at an ex-showroom price of INR 15.75 Lakhs in New Delhi. The LT carries the same 1699 cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected parallel twin motor from the Thunderbird Storm that produces 94PS at 5,400 rpm and 151 Nm torque at 3,550 rpm, and a 6-speed gearbox sends all that power to the 180-section rear through a belt drive.
Triumph Thunderbird LT Features:
Let’s look at some of the features and specifications point-wise:
- Analogue Speedometer (comes as a breath of fresh air)
- LCD contains the rest (odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel range, clock, indicator lights for ABS, high beam, turn signal, oil level, low fuel, coolant temperature, etc.)
- Two Auxiliary Spot lights
- Fuel-tank capacity is 21.9 litres
- Spoke wheels
- Avon ‘whitewall’ radial tires: 150/80-R16 at the front and 180/70-R16 at the rear
- Dual 310 mm floating discs at the front and single 310 disc at the rear
- ABS (Antilock Braking System) is standard
- Triumph claims best-in-class braking: 130 km/h – 0 km/h in 64.1 metres
- Big Windscreen, and detachable leather saddle bags (with 21-litre storage space) round off the cruiser package
Triumph Thunderbird LT Colors:
Triumph is making the new Thunderbird LT available in 2 color options in India…
- Lava Red/Phantom Black
- Caspian Blue/Crystal White
The bike is 2.75 lakh more expensive than the Thunderbird Storm but if you compare it to the likes of Harley Davidson’s Road King and Heritage Softail Classic, the LT seems like a bargain! With this new motorcycle launch, Triumph’s Indian line-up now comprises of 12 motorcycles and 3 cruisers and the company is planning to open two more dealerships in the country.
We will share more details along with clearer pics of Thunderbird LT shortly.
