Royal Enfield has not announced plans to make the Thunderbird 350 Redditch Edition.
Seeing the popularity of the Redditch colours, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 has been rendered by IAB’s automotive illustrator Shoeb in the same shades. Note that RE has not announced the Redditch for models other than the Classic 350 and the Classic 500 (exports only).
The Redditch series seen first in the Royal Enfield Classic 350 include Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue shades. The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch Edition also gets the original Redditch monogram seen on the prototype of 125cc ‘Royal Baby’, a two-stroke motorcycle back from 1939.
Powering the Royal Thunderbird 350 is a 346 cc single cylinder, air-cooled mill coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. The carburetted engine is capable of producing 19.8 bhp of maximum power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm.
Standard colour options of the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 include Stone, Marine, Lightning, Flicker and Asphalt. The bike has a retro look mixed with modern parts like a projector headlamp and a rear disc brake as standard.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 tips the scales at 195 kg and has a 20-litre fuel tank for an extended range. The bike has a ground clearance of 135 mm. Brakes include a 280 mm disc up front with 2-piston caliper and a 240 mm unit in the rear with a single piston caliper. The front 41 mm fork gets 130 mm travel and 5 step adjustable (preload only) dual springs in the rear get 80 mm of travel.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 has a post GST price tag of INR 145,876 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
