2003 Triumph Thunderbird Sport

2003 Triumph Thunderbird Sport
MSRP $8,499

The Sport version departs from the original Thunderbird by replacing the 18-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels with a pair of 17-inchers on both ends. An additional 310mm disc and 2-piston caliper up front adds to the stopping power, while a set of 43mm forks and a fully adjustable monoshock make the T-Bird Sport the weapon of choice for canyon carvers with a propensity towards all things vintage.
