Rocket Red Thunderbird

The Thunderbird’s name comes from the common belief that the beating of its enormous wings causes thunder and stirs the wind.  When Triumph was reborn in the 90’s their model range based around the muscular triple engine created this brute of a classic bike. The name seemed appropriate both historically in salute to earlier models as well as the legend above. As a choice I belive it is a close run between this and the modern Thruxton.
