MotoUSA takes Triumph's two new Thunderbird models, the 2014 LT (light touring) and 2014 Commander, for first ride evaluations of the British-built cruisers.
It's shootout time as we pit the 2013 Harley Sportster Iron 883 vs the 2014 Star Bolt vs the 2013 Triumph Bonneville in this battle between urban cruisers.
We get a quick ride on the re-designed 2011 Triumph America which features bars that pull back more, foot controls that are in tighter and a lower seat height.
We take a first ride on the Thunderbird's darker, meaner sibling, the 2011 Triumph Thunderbird Storm with a big bore kit on its Parallel Twin, new drag-style handlebars and a blacked-out treatment.
Triumph looks to tap the mammoth mid-sized cruiser market with its all-new Thunderbird, a 1600cc Parallel Twin delivering performance, personality and a different take on the cruiser.
Motorcycle USA samples the 2009 fuel-injected Triumph Modern Classic lineup, including two new versions of the iconic Triumph Bonneville motorcycle.
Featured Triumph Cruiser Comparisons
Both Triumph and Ducati gave its power cruisers the touring treatment, so we pitted the 2013 Rocket III versus the 2013 Diavel Strada in this motorcycle comparison.
