Triumph Thunderbird Storm first ride

The new Triumph Thunderbird Storm is a pared-down, mean and moody version of the standard Thunderbird.

MCN's Phil West rode the bike last week and here are some of his thoughts: "Hinckley has become particularly adept recently at delivering well thought-out and crisply-executed machines that are both thoroughly developed and wanting for little. And the Storm, although developed from an existing model - the 1600 Thunderbird - is the latest example of this.

"Aside from predictable plack paint and metal finishes plus subtly minimalistic styling, Triumph has gone the extra yard by giving the Storm more performance and a host of neat detail touches."

To read the full test, pick up a copy of this week's MCN, out now.
