    This is amazing and very reliable bike suitable for long rides on indian roads. I have owned this bike for more than a year now and have completed 9000 kms. Recent (july 25-30th 2019) was a 5 day trip ahmedabad- goa-ahmedabad covering 2448 kms. Very comfortable seating & one can do 250-300 kms non stop covering average 70-72 kms/hour @ speed 80kmph. In spite of continuous & heavy rains the performance exceeded expectations with superb fuel efficiency of 38 km/ltr. The machine never lets you down in terms of power & reliability, overall experience was scintillating....Absolute 10/10. Service support at sarabhai motors ahmedabad was excellent with proactive recommendation to carry necessary spares during the trip like clutch/accelerator wire, fuse, spark plug & cap etc etc. Maintenance cost is extremely low. However two areas of improvement recommended (1) head light (2) brake can bring 10x improvement in value proposition of the bike.

    Royal enfield thunderbird..This is not what it looks like its more than that. Yes i am talking about the royal enfield thunderbird 500cc. I think that the bikes name is being given due to this reason only when you drive the bike roar of the engine will make you feel like the thunder tearing the heart of the sky and giving respect to the bike, and the next bird, yes the bird when accelerate the bike the feel it gives the power, it just makes you feel like having a take off like a bird. So it can be said that this beast is a combination of tremendous power and everlasting comfort.

    There's only one grouse. And that is the waiting period. Otherwise , the bike is awesome in all respects . It looks awesome , has a great road presence and is super fun to drive . Only , the acceleration in the first 2 gears is rather low ( comparing to ktm duke) ,but get on to gear 3 and the road is your servant.

    Awesome experience perfect for long ride it's 41 nm torque will not let u stuck in any obstacles. Most important thing is that it's has maximum number of alarm like for low fuel, low oil, stand etc which is maximum in comparison with other royal enfield. That's make it perfect for every condition and situation it's help to know you about your machine.

    I am extremely bowled by the stunning look and looking forward to own it. Looking forward for test ride.Stunning look, i am sure the performance going to be great too. Little disappointed by not see is abs in re yet. Also pillion seat is disappointing too. New colours are so cool and eye catching. Tubeless tyres and finally here. Alloy wheels are here too now. New updates are extremely amazing.

    I booked it on 19 march and got its delivery on 8th April colour is getaway orange it's very beautiful 1st service was for 1101 rupees 2nd for 300.Faced 1 problem i.E.The horn stopped working after 1 month.It tells nice nice riding it. One disadvantage is that it does not have backrest so if a pillion is sitting and we accelerate it he might fall.But you can buy it separately from royal enfield for 2500 inr.
