Enfield, a popular motorcycle brand in India has launched yet another cruiser
motorcycle for the Indian market, the Thunderbird X. The brand known for its
retro styled motorcycle has launched a more contemporary looking cruiser in a
bid to stay relevant in the country's changing motorcycle scenario. The
Thunderbird 350X has been launched for Rs. 1,56,489 while the Thunderbird 500X
has been launched for Rs. 1,98,878, both prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
Thunderbird X is a factory built cruiser with a custom bike look. It is
essentially another variant of the Thunderbird as the name suggests. The
Thunderbird X features an all blacked out theme and comes in two different
colour options for both the 350cc and 500cc versions. The Thunderbird 500X is
being offered to customers in Getaway Orange and Drifter Blue while the
Thunderbird 500X is being offered in Whimsical White and Roving Red.
President, Royal Enfield, said, “The Thunderbird X is a custom inspired Royal Enfield,
that takes inspiration from our Thunderbird community. Our riders have been
customizing Royal Enfield motorcycles and the Thunderbird for decades. We took
that inspiration and have created an evocative, engaging, yet fun to ride
factory-built custom-look motorcycle that will offer great scope for further
customization and will appeal to new-age urban explorers. The two
interpretations of Thunderbird and Thunderbird X will continue to strengthen
our city and highway cruising proposition, and of nudging the youth to express
themselves. Those who seek to make a bold, defining statement will certainly
connect with the TBx.”
Thunderbird series of bikes from Royal Enfield were launched back in 2002 and
has always been inspired by a generation of young explorers over the last 15
years. The styling of the new Thunderbird X features a blacked out theme
alongside high contrast finish to the fuel tank. Another addition made to the
Thunderbird X is alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. Royal Enfield has also added
a gunslinger styled seat which has been coupled with a new grab rail and
shortened mudguard to give the bike a modish touch. The blacked out parts
include the silencer, front forks, side covers, headlamp cover, indicators and
grab rails. The variant colours of the tank are also replicated on the
stitching on the seats and the rim tapes on the alloy wheels. Also added to the
Thunderbird X is a new flat handlebar which gives the rider a more aggressive
posture. A much welcomed inclusion to the Thunderbird X is that of the a disc
brake in the rear. The bike however does not get ABS. Royal Enfield has not made
any updates on the mechanical front and the bikes come powered by the same
499cc and 346cc engines.
