    Yes you can ride TBTX350 Though you may not have both feet firmly on the ground but you can easily touch proximal foot on the ground for balancing and maneuvering. You need to get used to the weight of the bike to be comfortable with it.

    Mine is 5.3 and I ride this bike. 5.5 will do great because being 5.3 I can manage it pretty well but one thing you must have is muscle strength as it's pretty heavy compared to RE classic

    @ Vishwarjun | Absolutely, but take a test ride before deciding anything (FYI : Thunderbird model is discontinued. You can only buy second hand)

    No he is talking about 350x. And you are mentioning about the discontinued Thunderbird 350 with Hazard indicator model.

    Pros: Head turner, Well suited for short rides Cons : High on Vibrations, Very Low pillion comfort, Rusting and wear and tear is high

    Best bike and good value for money. I will start with Mileage, highway : easy 40 kmpl and in heavy traffic it drops to 32-33 kmpl. Maintenance Cost I don't feel anything heavy for me (Using this bike for almost 10 months). Comfort wise for the rider its great and while cruising at 70-80 Km/h you don't feel vibration at all. Performance I feel a little lag with the pull (have a decent pick-up). Styling wise its one of the best sexiest bike that you can take. I recommend this bike if your budget falls less than 2L, if you can afford more - go ahead with Interceptor.

    First experience: I have been dreaming of riding a Thunderbird since the day i saw it first in 2010, and on December 2018, I finally bought a Thunderbird 350x (whimsical White) here at Enfield showroom in Aizawl, Mizoram. The staff are courteous and very helpful and they handled all the necessary documentation and even took care of insurance, registration at Transport dept. with an extra charge of a nominal amount. After 1 year and 6 months, I have covered 10,000 kms, and it has pros and cons which I will elaborate briefly.I have never owned an RE before, my previous bikes are Hero Karizma and Pulsar 220. They are smooth and fast in comparison to the RE TB 350x. And the moment I rode out of the dealer, it really turns the head, and I was in love with how smooth and easy to handle in tight traffics and corners. I love the stability of the engine at low rpm which i have not experienced in my previous bikes.. As a cruiser, it is very comfortable and contrary to its heavyweight I find it easy to maneuver in tight traffic and corners; and the fuel consumption is about the same as such of Karizma with a daily commuting distance of 26km (approx). But the power to weight ratio is low compared to my previous bikes, so that's the first disappointment. And the other problems i faced are - while riding in the rain the engine misses a lot due to which I would visit the workshop often, and after riding in the rain, the original seat gets wet for more than 3 days, so i changed it, and yes, the back bumper does not properly cover the pillion's back in the rainy season, without extra mud flap, the pillion seat gets splattered with dirt. Riding: The longest ride on this bull was 350 km straight in monsoon weather between a hilly Mizoram with lots of twisties and a plain long straight road of Assam. It was fun in twisties, but as you stretch out for a straight 40 km, you realised that the shorter handlebar is not comfortable as you need to bend a little forward with your arms straight. My arms began to ache which fathes away as soon as we reach the twisties of the Meghalaya. It was fun to ride for long-distance, and it is more fun to ride in twisties than on straight roads. In that case, the older model of Thunderbird has a better handlebar for touring. Whilst the newer X model is for those who consider a comfortable, laid-back urban riding package.And the first real problem i faced was when i filled up the entire tanky, the engine started to miss horribly. And once stuck in the traffic jam, another fellow rider suggested that I opened up the petrol tanky lid, I did and a sudden whoosh sound of air comes up from the tanky and I was able to start the engine. So, every time i face that kind of problem, I open up the tanky lid and then it works all the time. But, as it became more frequent I fixed it up at the dealer and they changed some air filter under the seat. When I asked them what might be the reason, they told me that if the tanky is filled up to the rim, these kinds of problems arise. So, I checked online, and it states that to comply with the BSIV norms, the manufacturers fit an evaporative emission control unit, which should lower the amount of fuel that is evaporated when the motorcycle is parked. In comparison to the older model, the TB X model features a redesigned grab rail that’s neatly integrated next to the pillion seat and ends in the tail-lamp unit. Although this looks quite showy and attractive, it is not at all comfortable for the pillion rider without the backrest. At first, I didn't fix the backrest, but while riding in the pillion i almost fall off backward, and on that day itself i fixed the backrest at the dealer.The new TB X use the same engine as of the previous TB model with five-speed gearbox with 346cc engine, 19.8hp and 28Nm of torque. This specifications on the Bike with kerb weight 195kg does not produce a good power to weight ratio. Forget about competing with a mere 125cc Suzuki Access, you will be smoked, except on a straight road, maybe.So, to summerise, with all the exceptions, I still love the bike. But, at its price at around Rs. 1.7-1.8 lakhs, i hope RE launch a new model with Fuel Injection with an improvement in the power. Pros:1) Stylish2) Fun and easy to ride in urban and twisties.3) Fuel consumption is not high.Cons:1) Power to weight ratio is low2) Original seat and rear mud-guard are not pragmatic in the rain.3) Handlebar is uncomfortable for touring.
