Total KBB fair price: $10902. The bike is cosmetically and mechanically perfect, and at 2300 miles, itís hardly broken in. I'm fairly certain there's not a lower-mileage '13 to be found. It has been professionally maintained by Midnight Motorcycle of Hastings, MN , and over-wintered in their heated facility. KBB prices do not include the cost of installing parts, and many accessories (including all electrical equipment) were professionally installed.

The Thunderbird is a classic-looking cruiser. Its marbled-metallic-fading-to-black paint job is one of the most stunning you'll find on a stock bike. The water-cooled, belt-driven 1600 cc engine provides plenty of grunt, but Triumphís parallel cylinder configuration makes for one of the smoothest twins on the market. The Thunderbird also lives up to Triumphís reputation for building agile-handling bikes. Iíve configured the bike for comfortable cruising. It has a full windshield and lower wind deflectors. It also features Rivco floorboards and a front engine bar ready for pegs if desired. The Rivco chrome handlebar risers, bring the grips back toward the rider a critical inch, and in conjunction with the wide Mustang seat and rider back rest provide a very relaxed riding position. If you have back problems this bike can help. The addition of bags would make it a fine touring bike. Although the engine is very young, Iíve been getting just north of 40 mpg. With the 5.2 gallon tank, that's an honest range of a little over 200 miles--no need to pay last chance gas prices.

The Thunderbird is also the only bike I know of that offers an inexpensive engine upgrade kit should you choose to go that route. For about $900 dollars you get parts worth over $2000 purchased individually. The kit includes pistons and cylinder sleeves that increase displacement to 1700 cc, a more aggressive cam and other critical parts. When youíre ready for it, you can get an engine rebuild thatís actually a significant upgrade on the original powerplant for around $2000 including laboróthe traditional looks of the Thunderbird with the engine of the Storm.

2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster [video]

Over the past few model years Triumph strove to create some sense of how the Rocket can be used, eventually creating a touring-friendly model with windscreen and saddlebags as standard, called the Rocket III Touring. Then came the Rocket III Classic. More pulled back handlebars, floorboards rather than pegs, and two-tone paint helped define the powerful motorcycle as something appealing to the cruiser crowd.
