Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X Design And Style

The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X was launched in India earlier this year. The motorcycle is similar to the standard variant, however it features certain changes. Royal Enfield has updated the Thunderbird to offer a more modern styling. The motorcycle comes in bright, funky colours.

Royal Enfield has updated the handlebar, making it more flatter than before. This helps improve the maneuverability of the motorcycle around the city. The Thunderbird 350X is also the first motorcycle from the company to feature alloy wheels with tubeless tyres. The motorcycle also comes with lesser chrome. The Thunderbird 350X now gets an all-black treatment, which further extends to the alloy wheels as well.

The motorcycle manages a top speed of 120km/h.
