Royal Enfield is gearing up to launch its most feature-rich motorcycle in India, the Thunderbird 350X and 500X.
While the bike manufacturer has announced the launch date, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X brochure has been leaked online.
The Thunderbird X range brochure reveals the picture and specifications of the bikes.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird X range will be available in four different colours: Whimsical White, Drifter Blue, Getaway Orange and Roving Red.
The brochure goes on to say that the Thunderbird X styling and the vibrant colour scheme are coordinated with the seats and the rims.
Both the Thunderbird 350X and 500X are the first Royal Enfield motorcycles to feature a dual-tone paint scheme with the base colour in black.
While the fuel tank features the vibrant colour options, the engine, exhaust and the alloy wheels are painted in black.
The dual-tone paint scheme gives the Thunderbird X range a sporty and a modern look targeted at younger crowd of buyers.
The new Thunderbird X gets a new wider handlebar compared to the cruiser styled seen in the standard model.
Another interesting feature is the newly designed grab rails which blends well with the new seat design of the X range.
Additionally, the Thunderbird X range gets alloy wheels along with colour coordinated reflective sticker along the rims.
The nomenclature '350X' or '500X' is seen on the battery and toolbox with Thunderbird written in small letters below the moniker.
Mechanically, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X range continues to draw power from the engines as the standard model.
The Thunderbird 500X is powered by a 499cc single cylinder unit producing 27.2bhp and 41.3Nm of torque, while the Thunderbird 350X draws power from a 346cc single cylinder engine which develops 19.8bhp and 28Nm of torque.
Braking duties are carried out by disc brakes at the front as well as at the rear; however, ABS is not offered in these bikes.
DriveSpark's Thoughts About Royal Enfield Thunderbird X Brochure
The Thunderbird X range is expected to cost Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000 more than the standard Thunderbird.
For that price, the upgrade is quite significant and adds a sporty touch to the regular paint scheme of the Thunderbird.
With a cult following in India, the new RE Thunderbird X range adds more options for buyers, especially the young and modern buyers.
