One of the most anticipated motorcycles, the next-gen Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X is expected to launch in India by the end of this year or in early 2020. Considering the spy images of the motorcycle that have surfaced online in the past, Shoeb R Kalania (SRK Designs), the digital artist from IAB has created an impressive rendering of the motorcycle.

According to the rendered image, the upcoming cruiser motorcycle will feature a redesigned rear panel as well as the side panels in addition to a round headlight unit. The shorter rear fender gives the next-gen Thunderbird 500X a rather distinguished look.

The fuel tank seen on the 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X now features the fuel cap in the middle when compared to the offset position offered on the current-gen model. The rendered image of the motorcycle features all-black alloy wheels, a round tail light, and a repositioned registration plate. The sporty look of the motorcycle is further accentuated by a split seat design.

Mechanically, the 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X is expected to retain the same power output offered by the current-gen model. The only major change made to the engine will be its compliance with the BS6 emission norms.

Powering the motorcycle will be a 499cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, BS6-compliant engine, capable of churning out a maximum power of around 28 HP and a peak torque of around 42 Nm. The drive chain on the BS6-compliant model has been repositioned to the left side of the motorcycle.

The suspension duties on the next-gen Thunderbird 500X will be handled by the same conventional telescopic forks at the front while the rear will feature gas-charged twin shock absorbers. The motorcycle will feature disc brakes on either end with the addition of a dual-channel ABS unit as standard.

Royal Enfield recently launched the new Thunderbird 350X ABS and 500X ABS in India for INR 1.63 lakh and INR 2.13 lakh respectively. Both the prices are ex-showroom Delhi. The model takes inspiration from certain custom-made motorcycles in India. Here are 10 quick facts about the new Royal Enfield Thunderbird X series.

10 Quick Facts About Thunderbird X Series

1) Alloy Wheels: For the first time in Royal Enfield’s history, they offered a model with alloy wheels as stock. Thunderbird X comes with matching 9-spoke black alloy wheels that look amazing on its body. All other models in the company lineup are either offered with chrome or black spoke rims.

Thunderbird X is the 1st Royal Enfield Series to Get Tubeless Tyres & Alloy Wheels As Standard

2) Tubeless Tyres: As spoke rims from Royal Enfield does not support the tubeless tyres, Thunderbird X becomes the first motorcycle to offer tubeless tyres as standard. Most buyers used to switch from spoke to alloy and then get the tubeless tyres for their Royal Enfield motorcycles. But now RE will offer it as standard on the new 350X and 500X.

3) Matt Black Exhaust: Both the Thunderbird X series models are equipped with a matte black engine as standard. Chrome exhaust looked excellent but still, the best part came with Thunderbird X that brought Matt Black exhaust on both the 350X and 500X. It forms a unity with the engine and dissolves perfectly in the black themed lower half.

4) New Seat: The divided seat on standard Thunderbird makes way for this beautifully crafted single seat on Thunderbird X. It is perfectly chiselled for a comfortable riding experience and looks well padded at places that hold the rider and pillion intact in tough riding conditions.

5) New Handlebar: Royal Enfield has made the Thunderbird X series by keeping city rides in mind. It comes with a different handlebar that is not as high as the standard model. It also seems wider than before for the typical bobber feel from once a cruiser motorcycle.

There is no change in the design and layout of the instrument console

6) No Pillion Backrest: As short rides do not need the level of comfort that one demands from a long one, Royal Enfield Thunderbird X comes without a pillion backrest. This makes hopping on the rear seat an easier task than the standard Thunderbird model. Also, the rear now looks completely different.

7) Bright Shades: Here is something that can make fans go crazy for this motorcycle. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X is available in the Yellow and Blue shade while Thunderbird 350X comes in Red and White shade. The available shades are seen just on the fuel tank as Redditch edition while all other panels are kept Black as standard.

8) Two Engine Options: The powerful 350cc and 500cc motors are retained from the standard Thunderbird series for the motorcycle. This makes the Thunderbird 350X good for 19.8 BHP and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, Thunderbird 500X will produce 27.2 BHP and 41.3 Nm of massive torque. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

9) Dual-Channel ABS: Thunderbird X series comes with dual-channel ABS as standard, making them one among the safer-than-ever Royal Enfield bikes. The price gap of INR 50,000 between both the models brings a bigger engine with fuel injection to the buyers while everything else remains identical for both bikes.

Thunderbird X Rear 3-Quarter

10) Impressive Pricing: Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X comes for INR 1.63 lakh. The real math came after subtracting the cost of rear backrest and tubes from the motorcycle and adding the alloy wheel cost on top. Thunderbird 500X costs INR 2.13 lakh. The former comes out as a value for money machine while the 500X commands exclusivity.

RE Thunderbird X Brochure Leaked – Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and 500X were fully revealed recently through leaked brochure images. The launch will take place on Feb 28, 2018. The brochure leak clears that both the models will share the color options namely Getaway Orange, Drifter Blue, Whimsical White and Roving Red.

For once, if you ignore the changes made with these shades, newly introduced handlebar setting will help you get the typical street bike feel out of Thunderbird 350X and 500X. The seat is all-new as buyers won’t get that rear support equipped one on X series. Above all, it comes with tubeless tyres for the first time.

Alloy wheels helped Royal Enfield make this the first bike to have this added safety feature. The exhaust is now finished in matte black for a great contrast with all four vibrant shades. Apart from these changes everything else stays the same as standard Thunderbird 350 and 500.

Front gets 41mm telescopic forks, projector studded round headlight and 9-spoke alloy wheel. Twin pod console stays the same as regular Thunderbird while color scheme of most components has reversed to match the vibrant fuel tank shades. The reports claiming different shade options for both engines were proved wrong by this clear brochure image with all four shades.

Thunderbird 350X is powered by 346cc, air cooled engine producing 19.8 BHP at 5250 rpm and 28 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. On the other hand, Thunderbird 500X is powered by a 499cc, air cooled, fuel injected engine producing 27.2 BHP at 5250 rpm and 41.3 Nm at 4000 rpm.

Both the engines are torque rich units that help riders carry heavy weights on higher altitudes with much more ease than a regular bike. The pricing was not leaked in this report but one can expect a marginal increase due to switching of equipment.

According to a Royal Enfield dealer in Pune, the much-awaited Thunderbird 350X and 500X will launch in India on Feb 28. Thunderbird series will get an instant boost in sales with the introduction of 350X and 500X.

Buyers who need to spend an extra INR 20,000 on accessorizing their motorcycle will now save that money as Royal Enfield will offer alloy wheels, custom painted fuel tank and much more as standard on these motorcycles.

Those who were waiting for the bigger 650cc twins, it will certainly take time for them to arrive. Thunderbird 350X and 500X will continue with the same 346cc and 499cc engine duo, producing nothing less than 28 Nm and 41.4 Nm respectively.

Royal Enfield could introduce the 350X and 500X in limited numbers but it would be beneficial for them to launch both of them as standard models along with standard spoke wheeled variants.

More than these two, buyers are waiting for Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 to launch in India. Royal Enfield has developed an all new 648cc, twin cylinder engine producing 47 HP at 7100 rpm and 52 Nm at 4000 rpm.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. They are offering dual channel ABS, fuel injection, bigger brakes and much more on 650c duo. Royal Enfield is expected to price all upcoming models competitively.

Thunderbird 350X Spy Video Surfaces Online – Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X was recently spotted testing on public roads. The biggest surprise for everyone came through this testing video as both the bikes (350X & 500X) were seen at dealerships with production ready paint job and almost every expected change.

Still, Royal Enfield finally updated their motorcycles for good and offered these beautiful alloy wheels as standard on the Thunderbird X Series.

Buyers can also expect other series to get X additions in 2018 as Royal Enfield is climbing the sales ladder at a fast pace against fifth contestant Yamaha.

The changes are pretty visible on this spotted bike as one cannot compare the same straight with existing Thunderbird 350. Missing pillion backrest enhances the Bobber feel out of the motorcycle. Engine, exhaust and all other lower placed components are finished in matte black.

Front of the motorcycle is not seen here but comes with the same projector headlight for better illumination on the road. Tyres are now tubeless and seating changes from split to a single long unit on the motorcycle.

Young buyers are indirectly targeted through the inclusion of brighter shades and Redditch style tank paint options. Engine options remain the same 346cc and 499cc for both Thunderbird 350X and 500X respectively.
