Expert Review

So far, Thunderbird ownership has involved a simple set of rituals: Buy one, source aftermarket alloys for it, add auxiliary lamps and a prayer flag, and you're good to go. Now, Royal Enfield knows the Thunderbird demographic only too well and it has decided to step in and save you the trouble of a trip down aftermarket lane. Meet the Thunderbird 500X - a refreshed, urban-focused take on RE's popular wannabe cruiser.The 500X is powered by the 499cc motor from the Thunderbird 500, which produces 27.2hp and 41.3Nm of torque, and the engine is mated to the same five-speed gearbox. What RE has attempted to achieve with the X is a contemporary-looking cruiser that suits the urban palette. The X wasn't destined for layers of chrome; and with the blacked-out cycle parts came the possibility of alloy wheels - so RE shod it with one at either end (that should suffice, right?) with the a 19/18-inch (front/rear) combination. What you notice first, however, is the paint job. RE has kept it bright and simple, although it has clearly drawn inspiration from the Triumph Street Twin. You can choose from between two colours for this bike - orange and blue - and the fuel tank is the sole recipient of these new colours. Everything else on these motorcycles is some form of black (gloss or matte, in other words). I think it looks neater, more modern and certainly fits the role of an urban motorcycle better than the conventional Thunderbird. Also, while I'm not a fan of alloys on retro motorcycles, the ones on the X do the job and look better than the inevitable aftermarket alloys that find their way on most Thunderbirds.The headlight lens now gets a darker surround, to provide a stronger contrast to the projector light and DRL Read More
