The Thunderbird X motorcycle was first introduced on February 2018 which came in 500cc and 350cc options. Thunderbird X has a very appealing on-road presence with its eye-catching alloy wheels, vibrant paint schemes, tubeless tyres and a unique gunslinger type of seat that comes with new grab-rail.
Royal Enfield Thunderbird X range is offered in four colors: While Royal Enfield 500X gets Getaway Orange and Drifter Blue, the 350X is offered in Whimsical White and Roving Red.
Mechanically speaking, the Thunderbird X range gets same engine as that of standard Thunderbird motorcycles. While Thunderbird 350X motorcycle gets a single cylinder, air-cooled, twinspark, 346cc engine (19.8 bhp of power and 28 Nm of peak torque), the Thunderbird 500X gets a single cylinder, air cooled, 499cc engine which is powered by an electronic fuel injection system that produces maximum power of 27.2 bhp and generates 41.3 Nm torque. The addition of ABS is a welcome change and the motorcycle would be priced slightly higher than the normal one’s.
