A strong, willing engine, refined chassis, powerful looks and broad riding position give our new Thunderbird Commander the power and presence to dominate any road. Based on our original Thunderbird, the Commander easily impresses riders and onlookers with its classic cruiser style, premium feel and the world’s largest capacity parallel-twin engine. And being a Triumph, it’s a cruiser that also gives you day-long comfort, practicality, character and, on top of all that, superb handling. There’s no compromise here.

Standard Features

    Along with the rest of the Commander, this engine was designed to have impact on the eye as well as the road with machined engine fins and chrome covers contrasting against the deep black barrels and crankcases.  
    The Thunderbird Commander is bold all over. We took the engine’s dominant styling and continued the theme across the entire bike with the quality and level of detailing you’d only expect from a Triumph cruiser. A massive polished top yoke and polished stainless steel fork shrouds, signature Triumph twin headlamps, bespoke Commander badges and Art Deco LED tail light and rear indicator assembly all combine for a powerful, low, lean, sleek custom cruiser look.  
    This is the largest capacity parallel-twin motorcycle engine in the world. Based on the original Thunderbird parallel-twin, the beating heart of the new Commander generates an organic, torque-rich riding experience unmatched for sheer grunt and ease-of-use.  
    Being a Triumph, the Thunderbird Commander is packed full of modern engineering. We added double overhead camshafts and a crankshaft with 270-degree firing intervals, to give you an engine with authentic cruiser character. Whilst the fueling is looked after by a sequential fuel injection system and progressive throttle linkage so your engine delivers its torque exactly the way you expect.  
 Belt Drive:  
    We gave the Commander a belt final drive for low maintenance and long life.  
    Powered by a pair of saucer-sized forged pistons, the 1,699 cc 8-valve, DOHC engine’s uneven 270-degree firing interval and long-stroke design produces potent horsepower and torque, giving the Commander bags of twin-cylinder character.  
    Developed and refined by our engineers so that the Commander gives you performance through a seamless, snatch-free transmission.  
    There’s no handling compromise when you choose a Triumph cruiser and the Thunderbird Commander is no exception. Engineered to be responsive, agile, and deceptively easy to turn, even at low speeds. The Commander marries tuned geometry with a low center of gravity to make it steer as beautifully as it looks.   
    A dynamic engine with dynamic styling demands an equally dynamic chassis; one which reflects our belief that every bike, whatever its style, should be agile yet stable, have predictable, neutral steering and superior suspension and brakes. The Thunderbird Commander is no exception to that rule.  
 Wheels and Tires:  
    Fat-section 140/75 17 in. front and 200/50 17 in. rear tires running on diamond-turned cast wheels.  
    The Commander’s handling is further enhanced by a chassis specification worthy of sportier bikes. It features shrouded 47 mm Showa forks, twin 5-way preload adjustable Showa rear shocks, with optimized dual-rate springs, keeping you isolated from bumps but in touch with the road.  
    Dual 4-piston Nissin calipers on 310 mm floating discs up front and a single Brembo caliper and 310 mm disc at the rear, in conjunction with latest generation Triumph ABS, provide efficient performance and effortless braking control.   
    From the moment you roll forward on the Thunderbird Commander, you’ll notice that handling control is a priority, not an afterthought. Light, neutral steering belies the width of the tires, giving the rider form and function in one package. The parallel-twin engine’s compact weight distribution means the center of gravity is focused in front and below your knees, giving the Commander a gentle, even tilt into turns.  
    The Thunderbird Commander gives you high quality footboards made from chromed high-pressure die cast aluminum, featuring replaceable skid plates and an adjustable heel / toe gear lever.  
    Rider and pillion seat foam is a double-layer, dual-density material, soft and receptive on first feel but compressing to give a firmer, supportive yet pliant ride. The rider’s seat has also been especially shaped with wide, flared sides and a lumbar support to provide maximum comfort even at the end of a long day’s ride.  
    A massive 22 liter fuel tank with off-center filler cap.  
    Tank-mounted dash console including classic analog-style speedometer, a fuel gauge and an LCD with range-to-empty, twin trips, odometer and clock functions, conveniently scrollable via a handlebar-mounted button.  
    Twin, straight-cut drainpipe silencers so wherever you ride you’ll be accompanied by the Commander’s stirring exhaust note, specially tuned for pitch perfect progress.
