The Texas-based Motor Trike, Inc., has released another all-new trike, which pairs its industry leading Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) with the world’s largest parallel twin motorcycle engine, forming the “Triumph Thunderbird LT Trike.”

Jeff Vey, President and Owner of Motor Trike says, “The Thunderbird LT straddles the line with perfect balance of power, handling and comfort with a classic, traditional appearance.”

The Thunderbird LT Trike follows Triumph’s core value of outstanding handling in all situations.

It delivers light, neutral steering, low speed agility, yet maintains stability at all speeds in all types of conditions. It is an easy trike to master for any rider. The Thunderbird LT Trike comes standard with electric reverse, 5.5 degree rake kit, parking brake kit, ABS brake kit, trunk carpet, 12V power plug and a chrome LED dome lamp with switch in the trunk. The Triumph Thunderbird LT Trike is offered in Caspian Blue/Crystal White and Lava Red/Phantom Black.

The Triumph Thunderbird LT Trike was on display at Riverfront Park on Beach Street during Biketoberfest in Daytona. It will also be on display November 6 – November 9 at the Lonestar Rally in Galveston, Texas.

The Triumph Thunderbird LT Trike is available for $29,999 (plus tax, title, license and freight). Units ordered through Triumph dealers will maintain the full Triumph factory 2-year warranty.

Triumph is currently taking orders for the Thunderbird LT Trike with deliveries taking place in February 2015. Dealer financing is available for those who qualify. Please contact your local Triumph dealer directly.
