Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X spotted at a dealership
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The 500X’s smaller cousin, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X has been spotted at a dealership. Visually, it looks similar to the 500 cc version that was spotted recently.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X gets a dual tone treatment as seen in the image here. Like the Thunderbird 500X, the bike also features sportier handlebars and alloy wheels with white rim stickers to match the paint job. The motorcycle also comes with a single piece seat and split grab rails like the 500X. The rear-view mirrors are circular units instead of oval ones as seen on the regular Thunderbird variant. The powertrain, sideboxes, fenders, headlight casing and the instrument pods get black finish.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X, in all probability, employ the same 346 cc single cylinder mill that makes 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm as the regular Thunderbird 350. The engine pairs with a 5-speed gearbox.
Cycle parts include telescopic front forks, and twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers. For braking, the motorcycle comes with 280 mm front and 240 mm rear disc. Notable features of the Thunderbird are its 20-litre fuel tank, twin pod instrument cluster with average speed recorder for twin trip meters, and projector headlamp with LED DRL and LED tail light.
