Royal Enfield has launched new versions of their popular Thunderbird range of motorcycles in India – the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X. These motorcycles have been launched at Rs 1,56,849 and Rs 1,98,878 respectively (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Both these motorcycles come with design and feature updates which are meant to make them come across as a more youth-oriented product from the garage of Royal Enfield. And when it comes to design, Royal Enfields have a dedicated following of their own. So how is the Thunderbird 500X different? We take a look at the Thunderbird 500X.

One of the most evident design changes in the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X has to be the inclusion of bright coloured body graphics. And yes, for those of you concerned, it does come with a kick-start option as well, along with an electric start feature.

The new Thunderbird motorcycles follow a blacked-out theme which is complemented by bright-coloured fuel tanks. The blacked-out theme is carried over to components like the exhausts, front forks and side covers.

Perhaps one of the biggest change that makes a difference in terms of the motorcycle's riding dynamics has to be the inclusion of an all-new handlebar.

The riding ergonomics remain comfortable but the new handlebar helps in making the motorcycle feel a bit more manouverable through city traffic.
