Triumph Thunderbird Commander World Press Intro – We Are There!
Triumph’s new Thunderbird Commander and Thunderbird LT are being introduced to the world’s media this week in San Diego, California. MO’s Associate Editor and FNG, Evans Brasfield, is on the scene and ready to test the latest versions of Triumph’s big cruiser, now with a new frame.

Stay tuned to find out how the latest Triumphs perform!
