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.

  • Surely it worth it, Good grip stable eyecatching and longest ride on single day is 780km i have tried with last 450km in rain. : By Koustav | 5 months ago
  • All ready i am a woner of classic 500 but I already riding the speed of 135 and it was scary : By Santosh | 1 year ago
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 : By Mukesh | 3 months ago
  • 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.. : By Ajay | 11 months ago
  • 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. : By Koustav | 5 months ago

Q. How is Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X while riding Is this bike reliable What is the mileage in city roads and also on highways
  • 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. If you have decided to pick up the Thunderbird, then the 500X is definitely worth a look purely for its modern appeal. For its premium you get a bike that looks way more expensive. It loses a bit on the Thunderbird’s relaxed posture, its aggressive riding position might be a stretch for some, extra vibrations and small pillion seat. It is more of a heart over head buy, the 500X. If you are willing to look beyond its flaws, the 500X does make sense. It delivers mileage around 25-30 kmpl. Although, actual mileage figure will depend on several factors like riding style, road/traffic condition and how it is maintained.

Q. I am using Classic 500 for last 4 years, now I want change to Thunderbird 500X or Interceptor 650, which is better for me?
  • Hi, being an old thunderbird user u might know everything about the engine of that beast. still if u feel u wana continue using the same then thunderbird 500X is apt. However, if u wana try another than a crusier model, den Himalayan is a best pick for all round commute. Interceptor is a much more modern big which is ment for sporty styling and speed which cannot come in handy for crusier user. I feel it's better if u go for a test drive and select the one which suits you : By Mukesh | 4 months ago
