STYLE, PERFORMANCE AND CONTROL

It’s a classy combination, but it only takes one look at the Triumph Thunderbird to instantly know it's got the lot. From making big miles disappear to dominating the urban landscape; whichever you choose, the world’s largest parallel twin engine has every answer.

THE WORLDS LARGEST PARALLEL TWIN

At a colossal 1699cc, the world’s largest parallel twin engine, powers the Triumph Thunderbird Commander and packs a mighty big punch, pounding out a remarkable 94PS and truly staggering 151Nm at 3550rpm. This barn-storming low down performance makes it the perfect engine for anything from effortlessly relaxed cruising across entire continents to cutting a domineering dash along today’s roads. But with phenomenal overtaking power always on tap whichever gear you’re in, your Thunderbird is never found wanting. With forged pistons the size of saucers, the Thunderbird Commander's 1699cc, eight-valve, water-cooled parallel twin is engineered with a 270° firing interval for a chunky, charismatic power delivery. Twin balance shafts soothe low frequency vibes, allowing the Thunderbird’s pulsating torque to be felt across the rev range.

BUILT FOR CRUISING

The Triumph Thunderbird’s smooth, six-speed gear ratios deliver every ounce of the engine’s torque-rich performance, from the intense thrust of first gear right the way to an overdrive top gear for relaxed cruising and exceptional fuel efficiency. The Thunderbird's belt drive, with carbon fibre in the belt and a tungsten carbide treatment on the rear pulley, has a higher tensile strength than steel and ensures snatch-free transmission with high durability and almost no maintenance compared to chain-drive. And it doesn’t need oiling. Stylish on the outside, modern on the inside. The Commander features chunky 47mm Showa forks with 120mm of travel. Set-up and carefully matched to a pair of five-way preload adjustable shocks at the rear, with 109mm of travel giving the right dynamic for everything from spirited solo riding to two up touring.

NOT JUST A PRETTY ENGINE

The Commander's frame is built with a massively strong twin steel tube spine layout that utilises the engine as a strengthening factor, with optimised geometry to maintain user-friendly steering. But the frame also shows off the stunning parallel twin as the bike’s design focal point. Style matters, which is why the Commander stirs emotion visually as well as on the road. From mechanical highlights like machined cooling fins, chrome covers and careful exhaust routing, to the aesthetics of diamond-turned cast wheels or wire spokes, deep fenders, hand-painted coach lines and lustrous body-colours, each Thunderbird is built with the quality and detailing you’d expect of a prestige Triumph cruiser.
