The Thunderbird strikes again on Indian highways. Yes, the legacy continues. But this time, Royal Enfield’s dug deep into the 70’s and brought out its sweetest variant - The Thunderbird 350X and 500X to shell out urban retro vibes. The ‘X’ is not ten, duh, but aims to target the young riders of India with it chopper-style-hippie-look. The new variant is bolder, aggressive and uses the same engine as the original Thunderbird. The all-black theme with contrast colours gives it an attitude which sets it apart from other mid-sized motorcycles. Both the bikes feature 9-spoke black alloy wheels with disc brakes at both ends. Colour options should be your main decision - Gateway Orange, Drifter Blue for the 500X and Whimsical White and Roving Red for the 350X. Sale starts on the 28th of February and pick it up from your nearest RE showrooms - ₹1,98,878 (500X) and ₹1,56,849 (350X); both prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
