It is a wonderful experience to own a Thunderbird 500x. It is the most practical bike from Royal Enfield, as there is alloy wheels, less vibration,powerful headlamp. It is almost fully rectified version of all the RE bikes. But top speed of the bike is quite low. With 500cc engine capacity it only touches 120kmph whereas Himalayan can reach 145kmph with 411cc engine capacity. Very poor performance in terms of swiftness. Otherwise it is the very best product even better than Interceptor or Continental GT, because in both of them pillion riders feel uncomfortable as there are twin silencers.

Classy and chessy bike, suited for tropical long rides, gets the real feel of thunder driving

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!

The new Thunderbird variant adds a dash of colour and youthfulness to one of Royal Enfield’s most popular motorcycles. Does it ride as good as it looks?
