New MCN March 18: World first ride of the Triumph Thunderbird

Published: 17 March 2009

Updated: 19 November 2014

In this week's edition of MCN, we get a World first ride on the new Triumph Thunderbird cruiser.

The test reveals that the 1596cc parallel twin engined cruiser is easily good enough to shame its Japanese rivals and it even mimcs the sound of a V-twin to tempt mainstream cruiser buyers.

Also in this edition, we test the 2009 1000cc sportsbikes over 1170 miles of roads to see which one will rule the road.
