Q. Which is better between thunderbird 500 and Pegasus edition?
  • The Classic 500 Pegasus is a limited edition variant of the regular model. While the differences are mostly visual, it offers unparalleled exclusivity, rich with the brand’s history connected to the legendary ‘Flying Flea’ that made a name for itself during World War II. Although this edition has been sold out. On the other hand, The Thunderbird family is arguably one of the most feature-laden motorcycles from the British brand. Both the 350cc and 500cc variants feature dual trip meters with average speed readout, digital fuel gauge, a generous 20-litre fuel tank, projector headlamp with LED DRL, and relaxed ergonomics. Thunderbird X range is targeted at urban-centric riders who want a snazzy but capable cruiser. The brightly-coloured fuel tank, colour-matched rim stickers and modern alloy wheels make it look a bit more hipster than the rest. It also gets slightly sportier ergonomics thanks to the flat handlebar.
  • There's no such thing as better. it's a matter of preferences. AND budget. if affordability is not a problem then TBX500 Has many new features e.g. tubeless tyres, alloy wheels, fuel injection, and refinement like engine cutout for side stand . Reg mimics and freshness for sure against classic 500.. if you like the thump, then classic 500. my choice: go for TBX500.
  • Don't know
Q. Which would be better to purchase Thunderbird 500X or Pulsar RS200?
  • Both the bikes belong to a different segment and have their own forte. If you're looking for a cruiser bike which is also suitable for streets then we would suggest you opt for RE Thunderbird 350X. Otherwise, go for Pulsar RS 200. Do take a test ride before making any final decision.
  • Rs 200 coz i raced a 500x and it lost
  • RS 200
