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 theBajaj Dominar, Mahindra Mojo and the soon-to-be-launched Jawa Perak.
