Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X Latest Updates

29th November 2018: Royal Enfield has launched the Thunderbird 500X with the safety net of dual-channel ABS. Priced at Rs Rs 2.13 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it commands a premium of around Rs 15,000 over the non-ABS variant. The Thunderbird 500X is a modern take on Royal Enfield’s Thunderbird cruiser. The bike stands out from the current pack thanks to blacked out parts and contrasting bright paintwork. Chrome has been given a miss and what you get instead are blacked out components like the engine, exhaust, front forks, rear shock absorbers, handlebar, headlamp cover, meter bezels, mirrors, side panels, tailpiece and the rear grab rail. The fuel tank meanwhile gets a shade of bright yellow and blue options with matching rim tapes on the new alloy wheels that replace the spoked units. It features a single stepped up seat rather than the split seat seen on the standard model. Moreover, the bike also gets new plastic grab rails. The handlebar too is a flatter unit instead of the tall ones on the Thunderbird.

The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X retains the same 499cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor of the Thunderbird 500. It produces 27.5PS at 5250rpm and 41.3Nm of torque at 4000rpm. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and twin gas-charged shocks at the rear. Anchoring the bike are disc brakes at both ends.

At a price tag of Rs 2.13 lakh, the Thunderbird 500X competes against the Bajaj Dominar, Mahindra Mojo and the soon-to-be-launched Jawa Perak.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Thunderbird 500X

Q. What's your experience and review after riding the bike is it worth or not - Thunderbird 500X?
  • The 500X uses the Thunderbird 500’s underpinnings so it rides and handles like any stock Thunderbird would. What has changed is the riding position, thanks to the new handlebar. The more aggressive riding position gets you closer to the action and the new handlebar gives you a better inkling of what the front end is doing than the ape-hangers on the stock Thunderbird. It does make you reach out a bit, which is not too comfortable given that the footpegs still use the relaxed forward-set position. It also brings in a lot more vibrations, which will be uncomfortable on longer rides. Powering the bike with 499cc air-cooled engine makes 27.5PS and 41.3Nm. It is a torquey unit that gets the bike up to speed in a fairly rapid manner but the issue is vibrations exactly at the sweet spot rpm where you end up riding in the city. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

Q. Which bike should I go for, Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 or 500X
  • It's too good bike for touring or for occasional riding and for us mileage is good for 500cc 32kmpl and in dis the great thing is royal Enfield suit power exhaust only not only silent vibration
  • Several sites will provide you comparison charts of one against the other. both have SAME engine. BUT ,TBX has 1. tubeless tyres.2. alloy wheels3. ABS4. straightened handle bar 5. fresh look with the two tone colours ( if you are a chrome lover then tb is your pick) as TBX exhaust has no chrome. it's black. choice is yours. Happy riding.
  • If u r ready for a good maintainace cost go for it Only riding a 500cc bike in city wont be a good choice the mileage comes down to 22kmpl. Choose wisely

Q. Is it stable in high speed or does it shake a lot - Thunderbird 500X?
  • There is alot of difference between shaking and vibration. bike vibrates alot but manageable. but those will be sever after 120(even with proper riding gears). however bike's stability on road is pretty strong. bike won't wobble at high-speed
  • Cut off @ 138..i simply reached 135 on open highways.. But speed comes @ a great cost.. Oil. Always check oil every 750 kms.. Service book will tell you that 2.7 ltrs the limit but this is wrong info and it is targeted to cause engine complaints within 2 years.. I would suggest motul synthetic oil instead of RE oil..
  • For me with proper riding gear even at 120km/hr i found it stable above that yes its vibrating. And without gear 90~100km is ok but you cannot sustain the speed.

Q. Which one is better Thunderbird 350X or 500X for regular use and lower maintenance?
  • If you have maintenance issue.... I ll not recommend 500...it had good power but...if you had the word mileage... definitely think b/w 350 - 500....and it depends
  • The riding comfort of the bike can be judged by taking a test ride for it, why don't you have a sit on it and check it out. But one word of advice - don't let height keep you from getting onto a bike. Related Read: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-thunderbird-500x-first-ride-review/29920/

    I bought RE TB 500X Orange on 25th Oct 2019. Drove 300 plus Kms in a week. Excellent styling, comfort and torque. One must buy a 500X over 350X to get the max thrill and motorcycling experience out of this class offered by RE. The weight to power ratio is 0.75 CC per kg higher for 500X than 350X. Value for money for bike enthusiasts. My little experience tells me that this bike this bike will require attention and care / regular maintenance checks, to optimise high performance. But this stands true for all heavy bikes above 300 CC. The new handle bar adds to riding experience, but you need little rest after 120 km on a stretch, as it strains your back. Pick up and torque are true to RE spirit for 500X, offering higher torque at low RPMs. GO for it, you will love this machine!

    Although it weighs 197 kgs, i found it much lighter to handle as against classic 350. Bucket seat and ergonomics are the two key factors. Comfortable - it takes a couple of days to get used to bucket seat after classic 350 habituated posture and it also depends on the height of the person. It is s beauty.

    it's been a week since I got the vehicle, so far it's a beast with new costume. simple and elegant seating,ready to capture long distances attitude, instant power and thump whenever we rev, all of it makes me find a reason to got on to bike more often.Totally worth cruiser

    Maintenance is the worst. Oil gets burned every 2000- 2500kms. Tank paint loss @ 3500km&3months. Chain will get rust when not lubed every 500 kms. Rusting on every chrome surface.
