Thunderbird 500X looks totally new as buyers won’t get that old chrome laden frame for the motorcycle. Royal Enfield has kept both fenders black while Redditch style tank shades bring out the hidden Bobber from Thunderbird 500X.

The pricing makes it the most expensive Royal Enfield of India. ABS is still missing from the flagship product and may not be offered before April 2019 for the Indian market.
