Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 Iron Maiden is a perfect example of how a moderate cruiser can shift its form into a typical cruiser. Bulleteer Customs from Bangalore made this amazing cruiser by changing almost every visible part of the Thunderbird 500.
Changes in the motorcycle are most visible from its side view, clearly hinting at an almost new profile for the 500cc motorcycle. The seats are ribbed and connected in such a way that rider can use its slope as a backrest while the pillion rider doesn’t get a backrest, unlike the stock model of the Royal Enfield Thunderbird.
The stock fuel tank has been replaced with a teardrop unit with a white finish. The same white finish is seen on both the fenders while a black stripe runs smoothly across the centre of all the components, getting more visible near the tank and slimming itself at both ends.
The suspension setup remains stock on Thunderbird 500 Iron maiden but still, one can spot gloss black covers over the front side. Bulleteer Customs has equipped the modified bike with wide tyres, both of which are wrapped over black alloy wheels for an amazing look. The motorcycle further features an ape hanger handlebar, bar end indicators, a single-pod instrument console, and a custom headlight.
Replacing the stock exhaust with dual pipe black unit, Bulleteer Customs kept the engine and its working components in stock condition. The 499cc, single-cylinder engine on the RE Thunderbird 500 is good for 27.2 Bhp of maximum power and 41.3 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The stock bike weighs 199kg while the weight of this modified version is still unknown. Bulleteer Customs have kept the stock 280mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes intact for better braking on the Thunderbird Iron Maiden. For further queries and pricing details you can contact:
