5 user reviews of Triumph Thunderbird 900 Sport See all
I'm interested in one of these, it is one of the few bikes I would trade my W650 for. There is one for sale with 36000 kms on it locally for $9500 Aus. I suppose about 6000 pound.
I'm interested to hear that it is not good for pillions though. A lot of my riding is with my wife on the back.

Triumph Thunderbird is a very smooth and better handling bike! This one is incredibly engineered motorcycle, power is decent and the brakes and suspension is brilliant. I must admit that when I saw it first I fell in love with it. Its a terrific bike and would blow away other competitor bikes out there. Triumph Bikes in India

I came back to riding after a 20 year hiatus and bought the new 2001 Bonneville. In retrospect I wish it had been the T'Bird sport.
I'd love to see Triumph manufacture them again using owner information gathered and improved technology in the 17-18 years since they came out. Upside down quality shocks and rear suspension and brakes,100hp injected version of the 885 and then charge a reasonable premium for it and it could be a genuine Norton opposition for those who resent the money Norton sells them for and the waiting time for the product. These could still be around when Norton implodesagain

Depends which year of Tbird Sport it is - the later versions with an exhaust on each side had lower pillion rests. And let's be clear folks, he's asking about the Tbird Sport, not the Tbird, which is a rather different animal...
My late 97 bike is a delight to ride; that wonderful grunty engine and quality suspension for its day make an excellent package. The finish is fine...
Ask pointed questions about the starter clutch and the alternator drive bolt - keep your battery fully charged to give the starter clutch an easy life if you do buy it. Good luck!
