2013 Triumph Thunderbird Storm

Meet the Thunderbird’s punky cousin. Dechromed. Stripped down. More attitude than before. Distinctive twin headlights. Straight bars. Any colour you like, as long as it’s black. This is the Thunderbird Storm, the same great chassis as the award-winning Thunderbird, with more power as standard and a harder edged and more distinctive look.

With the award-winning Thunderbird as its base, it’s no surprise that the Storm comes highly specified as standard.

The edgy, stripped down, styling is complemented perfectly by the iconic twin headlights, made famous on Triumph’s legendary Rocket III and Speed Triple models, give the Thunderbird Storm a street rod look straight from the box.

And while the look may be pared back, the spec sheet certainly isn’t. With a 1700cc parallel-twin at its heart the Thunderbird Storm is a power cruiser that packs a mighty punch. The tank mounted speedo includes a small built in tacho and on-board computer which includes clock, two trip meters and a fuel gauge. The low maintenance belt drive system delivers the torque smoothly and cleanly, while the cycle parts ooze class and quality. Anti-lock brakes are also an option for the Thunderbird Storm, offering extra security and safety to the rider and passenger.

  • Engine
  • Liquid-cooled, DOHC, parallel twin, 270 degree firing interval 1,700cc delivers tree stump pulling torque and power.

  • Chassis
