The motive force at the heart of the new Thunderbird LT is the World’s largest parallel twin motorcycle engine, as found in the existing Thunderbird Storm and based on the original Thunderbird.
To match the quality of its ride, the LT’s tapered trioval exhaust cans aren’t just built to look good, they’re especially tuned to give a rewarding, rich sound.
The Thunderbird LT has a belt drive for low maintenance and long life.
At 1699cc, the LT’s eightvalve DOHC motor produces 94PS at 5400rpm and a whopping 151Nm of torque at a lowly 3550rpm. The enormous thrust from its pair of saucersized forged pistons and uneven, longstroke 270° firing interval create a classic bigtwin feel, perfect for propelling the you over long distances with a natural, easy going groove.
Whether crossing continents or on a Sunday morning run, the LT’s awesome engine potential is harnessed by a progressive throttle, highly accurate fuel mapping, cuttingedge sequential fuel injectors, a positive sixspeed gearbox. The result, from the top end of first gear to the bottom end of top gear, is an unrivalled ride in this class.
