The Royal Enfield Thunderbird café racer gets a new suspension setup with upside down forks up front and a monoshock setup in the rear. These are the significant upgrades over the stock motorcycle. The number plate shifts to the left side of the motorcycle. The wrapped exhaust is custom built.

The front tyre of the custom built Royal Enfield comes from MRF and the rear unit from Ralson. Brakes include a disc setup in the front and a drum unit in the back. The bike additionally gets small fenders at both ends, and the seat is a custom unit with a cowl in place of the rear pillion seat.

In stock form, the Royal Enfield 499 cc single cylinder, air-cooled mill matches to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 27.2 bhp of maximum power and 41.3 Nm of peak torque in the stock bike.
