Triumph Thunderbird 1700 Storm Bike Overview
1699cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine with 97bhp can hit a top speed of 120mph – that’s pretty good considering it weighs in over 300kg. As you can imagine with all Triumphs, the suspension, brakes and engine are all second-to-none.
Thunderbird 1700 Storm comes in either jet black or lava red, and even though Triumph have opted for a minimalist look with this model it still clocks in at over £13,000 straight from the dealers floor.

Nice and cosy. Done many 200+mile runs with no problems
Fitted with short tors, k&n air filter, cat removed and tors remap. It's had loads of torque and sounds great
Great so far
Perfectly good but sometimes it feels they aren't working as well as they actually are. The ABS is superb with nice feedback
It's heavy at slow speeds and stationary. Ok when moving. Sofened the rear suspension and now not wollowy on undulating surfaces.
Pulls like a train. Wonderful feeling. Engine sounds a bit agricultural.
About 50mpg. 200 miles to the tank. I do seem to have to fill it up often. Then I realise how many miles I'm doing.
Had it 8 months. No issues so far. Tyres are expensive.
No ABS on my model. Twin discs up front. Could be a bit more powerful, but better since I had the brake fluid changed.
