Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X Highlights

29th November 2018: The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X has been launched with dual-channel ABS at Rs 2.13 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It commands a premium of around Rs 15,000 over the non-ABS variant. The Thunderbird 500X is the newest addition to the Thunderbird family. Notable features include a bright paint job with blacked-out components like the engine, headlight, twin-pod instrument console, alloy wheels, exhaust, front fork stanchions, and black grab rail. You now get 19-inch front and 18-inch rear 9-spoke alloy wheels with tubeless tyres and a new single-piece seat in place of the standard split seats. There are two colour options: Getaway Orange and Drifter Blue. The new Thunderbird 500X continues to draw power from the 499cc air-cooled, Twin-spark, fuel-injected single-cylinder engine from the Thunderbird 500. Mated to a 5-speed transmission, the bike produces 27.57PS of power and a peak torque of 41.3Nm at 4,000rpm. There are 41mm telescopic forks at the front and 5-step adjustable preload twin gas-charged shocks at the rear. Braking duties are taken care of by the 280mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes.

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X News

Thunderbird 500X Expert Review

The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X is a more street-oriented version of the Thunderbird 500 touring bike. For starters it comes in two bright colours: Drifter Blue and Getaway Orange. Rest of the bike including the engine and exhaust features a blacked out finish. The handlebar is shorter for better control. It gets 9-spoke alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres. Other bits are LED headlight with daytime running lights, a twin-pod semi-digital instrument cluster. It gets a single-seat unit in place of the split seats on the regular Thunderbird.

Power is courtesy of a 499cc fuel-injected, air-cooled, single cylinder, the twin-spark motor that develops max power of 27.57PS at 5,250rpm and a peak torque of 41.3Nm at 4,000rpm. The motor is coupled with a 5-speed transmission. The mechanical specs remain same as on the stock Thunderbird 500. Considering the same equation, the bike is expected to yield a fuel economy of 30kmpl. 

The Thunderbird 500X is bolted on the single downtube frame that is suspended on front 41mm telescopic forks with 130mm of travel and twin gas-charged rear shocks with 5-step adjustable preload. The front 19-inch wheel is shod with 90/90- R19 tubeless tyre while the rear 18-inch wheel gets a 120/80- R18 section tubeless tyre. The braking department consists of 280mm disc brake and 240mm disc brake at the rear. 

The bike is priced at Rs 1.98 Lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi) and competes against the Bajaj Dominar and Mahindra Mojo.

Design and Features

The new Thunderbird 500X gets new bright colours with blacked-out motor and underpinnings. Except for the 20-litre fuel tank and the chrome treatment over headlight cowl, twin-pod and rear dual shocks, everything is painted in black. Up front, there is a circular headlamp with LED DRLs, a twin pod semi-digital instrument cluster and a shorter handlebar.  The instrument console gets analogue displays for speedometer and tachometer while there is a digital display for odometer and trip meter. The split-seat configuration of the Thunderbird series has been ditched in favour of a comfy single-piece unit for enhanced comfort for both, the rider as well as the pillion. A cool touch is the body-coloured pinstripe on the black alloy wheels. The build-quality looks up-to-the-mark and the finish levels seem fine too.

Dimensionally, the Thunderbird 500X measures 2040mm long, 1140 high and 830mm wide. The ground clearance of the bike sits at 135mm and the wheelbase at 1350mm.

Engine and Performance

Powering the bike is the fuel-injected, air-cooled, single cylinder, the twin-spark 499cc engine that develops a max power of 27.57 PS at 5,250rpm and a peak torque of 41.3Nm at 4,000rpm. The power mill is coupled with a 5-speed transmission unit. The mechanical specs remain same as on the stock model. Considering the same equation, the bike is expected to yield a fuel economy of 30Kmpl. 

Braking and Handling

The braking department consists of 280mm disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc brake at the back. The bike does not have ABS even as an option. The front 19-inch wheel is shod with 90/90- R19 section tubeless tyre while the rear 18-inch wheel is covered by 120/80- R18 section tubeless tyre. Talking about the chassis, the Thunderbird 500X is bolted on the single down tube frame that suspends on the 130mm travel front telescopic forks of 41mm and twin gas charged shocks at the rear with 5-step adjustable preload. 

Safety and Features

On the safety front, the bike gets disc brakes at both ends, a large round-shaped projector headlamp with LED DRL headlamp and the tubeless tyres.
