Royal Enfield will soon be launching new Thunderbird 350X in the Indian market in coming days! It would the first 350cc Royal Enfield cruiser to be equipped with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. The new version of Thunderbird is inspired from the likes of Harley-Davidson and Triumph cruisers.
Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X was recently spotted at a dealership in Belgaum. The launch is expected to happen in January 2018 and the deliveries are expected to start by the end of next month or in the first week of February.
The engine, exhaust pipe, and the front suspension on the Thunderbird 350X are finished in matte black shade. The motorcycle will come with new handlebar, all-new well-padded seats, tubeless tyres, and Black alloy wheels. Like the recently launched Classic 350 ‘Redditch Edition’, the all-new Thunderbird 350X will be available in 2 vibrant shades: Red & White.
As far as engine is concerned, Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X will be powered by the same 346cc single-cylinder engine. It generates maximum power of 19.8 Bhp @ 5250 rpm, and develops maximum torque of 28 NM @ 4000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
New model of Thunderbird is expected to get a price hike of around INR 25,000-30,000 in comparison to the standard Thunderbird 350. We expect TB 350X to be priced around INR 1.70-1.75 Lakh (Ex-showroom).
