Triumph revealed their 2009 lineup and among the models was the all new Triumph Thunderbird which will go on sale in 2009 as a 2010 model.
The new Thunderbird is a 1600cc parallel twin with 6 speeds and belt drive. The bike will be offered with accessories to change its appearance and function from custom cruiser to fully dressed tourer. ABS will also be available.
The styling doesn’t seem to break any new ground but the bike puts Triumph squarely in the center of the large bore cruiser market with a parallel twin instead of the usual V-Twin configuration run by everyone else.
