The original Thunderbird was launched in 2005 replete with a laid-back cruiser styling, conventionally placed gear and brake levers, twin-pod instrument cluster, a modern AVL engine and more colors than black. The bike proved to be a success with the Thunderbird offering very good performance and head-turning looks with an iota of reliability which was needed the most. The Thunderbird was the 'bullet' for the younger generation trying to combine old school charm with all the user friendliness of a modern bike and it succeeded to quite an extent. 

According to a reviewer at, "The Thunderbird embodies the cruiser image to the hilt with loads of chrome and what is not chromed is buffed for good measure."

Start Thumping...
