Our Verdict The Royal Enfield Thunderbird, in its second generation, is an able cruiser from the Indian bike maker's stableThe classic thump mated to modern tech.The Honda CBR250R is better than expected. Excellent comfort and strong performance make it a hit. The new colour schemes have added more appeal to the bike.
