Triumph India has launched another cruiser to its massive lineup in India. The company has launched its Thunderbird LT at a price of Rs- 15,75,000/- (ex-showroom, Delhi). With this addition the total number of Triumph products in the country has gone up to 12.
The bike has loads of chrome and a classic cruiser theme. The LT stands for Light Tourer based on the existing Thunderbird Storm. The motorcycle gets a tall windscreen, white wall radials, leather saddlebags, and two auxiliary lamps in addition to the main headlight assembly. The rider gets a small backrest integrated in to the seat with the pillion rider getting one as well, making long journeys on this motorcycle a breeze. The saddle bags are capable of holding 26 liters of luggage and the fuel tank has a good capacity of 22 liters ensuring not-so-frequent stops at the gas station.
The engine powering the Thunderbird LT is a 1699cc, eight-valve, DOHC motor producing 92.6bhp and 151Nm of torque. The company says that this is the largest, parallel, production twin-engine in the world. This cruiser makes use of a belt drive system and transfers power to the wheel through a six-speed gearbox.
The British manufacturer at the launch said that it has already sold 837 motorcycles so far and will also be adding two more outlets in the country by the year-end.
