TRIUMPH 900 THUNDERBIRD - 1995

At the presentation of the Trident range, Triumph was criticized because a too "modern" styling. The nostalgic of this trademark wished something different. Always on the same engine basis, Triumph presents in 1995 the 900 Thunderbird. Thunderbird, a magical name reminding the 650 showed 45 years earlier. The styling is superb, all in roundness remembering the yesteryear's Triumph machines. The "retro" aspect is perfect, classically shaped teardrop tank and Triumph tank badge, silencers, spoke wheels, all is there. Its Trident engine is tuned for an abundance of torque at low revs. It's a very pleasant machine to ride.
