About Thunderbird 500X

Royal Enfield saw a need in the market for an urban cruiser, and this is the result: the Thunderbird 500X. It gets a driveline similar to the regular Thunderbird 500, but there are a few changes. One, it is available in bright, single-tone colours in the same vein as the Classic Redditch series. The 500X is available in light blue or bright orange. The handlebar is a flatter, wider one, which helps with manoeuverability in the city. It gets all-black treatment, which extends to the alloy wheels. This is the first time a Royal Enfield has been shipped with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres from the factory. It gets the same 499cc fuel-injected single-cylinder air-cooled engine from the Thunderbird 500. It generates 27.2bhp and 41Nm and transmits it via a five-speed gearbox. The wheels are a 19-inch front and an 18-inch rear. There are disc brakes at both ends, with a 280mm front disc and a 240mm rear one. ABS is a Rs 14,000 option. The seat of the Thunderbird 500X has been changed – it is a more modern-looking one. The rider’s seat is wider, and the pillion seat is smaller. The pillion backrest has also been left out.

The pricing of the Tbird 500X makes it the most expensive single-cylinder Royal Enfield on sale today. The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X competes with the likes of the Bajaj Dominar 400 ABS and UM Renegade Sports S directly. Bikes like the KTM 250 Duke and TVS Apache RR310 are priced similarly, although their target audience is a very different one.
