Owners manual for Storm

Hi

Just took delivery of a new Storm and just love it. However, the dealer has been advised that Triumph have not produced an owner's manual specifically for the Storm.

The dealer has given me the Thunderbird one, but there are some differences between the two models.

I find it a bit of a worry that Triumph would release a new model without the relevant handbook.

Has any of the Storm owners encountered this?

i think the only difference besides cosmetic is the dual headlight. So i imagine they wouldn't make a new manual just for that. Plus being a owners manual there should be no difference between the regular headlight and the storm's dual. They should both operate the same way to the point there would be nothing different in the manual to mention. If we were talking service manual then the headlight would require some different info. You should be fine with the regular manual.

I will confirm this. Standard manual + leaflet for storm differences.

Thanks guys

I think I need to follow this up with Triumph Australia seeing as you bought your bike in Australia.

Cheers
