1

As we recently reported, Royal Enfield, the iconic South India-based motorcycle manufacturer, will soon launch two new variants of the Thunderbird. Dubbed as the new 2018 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and 500X, the new bikes have been once again spied testing on an expressway. Good chances are that these two would launch just prior to the fast-approaching Auto Expo 2018. The Thunderbird 350X and Thunderbird 500X boast many styling updates that make the cruiser bikes look fresher. While there is no change in the specifications, there will be an increment in the prices. The new Thunderbird 350X is expected to have an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.70 lakh while the Thunderbird 500X will launch at a price of roughly Rs 2.1 lakh.

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and 500X Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) January 2018

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and 500X Price in India

350X Price (expected) Rs 1.70 Lakh
500X Price (expected) Rs 2.10 Lakh

The regular Thunderbird range starts at Rs 1.57 lakh. The new models offer more in terms of features. Hence, we expect them to command a considerable price premium over the regular models. Expect the price of 350X to be roughly Rs 1.70 lakh while the new 500X could cost Rs 2.10 lakh. The motorcycles, in all probability, will be able to justify the higher price through more features and fresher looks.
