2011 Triumph Storm 1700 | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

The Triumph Thunderbird gets an update in 2011, thanks to the Storm’s larger capacity motor that puts out an additional 12 horsepower and 7 ft/lbs of torque over the standard model.

Bars with a straighter bend give the Thunderbird Storm a tougher attitude, along with new Speed Triple- inspired twin headlights and lots of black where there used to be chrome.

Two “color” choices greet you: Jet Black and Matte Black. Showa does the suspension, Nissin calipers grab the twin 310mm floating front discs and a Brembo caliper grips the 310mm rear disc.
