About Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X Specifications
Royal Enfield saw a need in the market for an urban cruiser, and this is the result: the Thunderbird 350X. It gets a similar driveline as the regular Thunderbird 350, but there are a few changes. One, it is available in bright, single-tone colours in the same vein as the Classic Redditch series. The 350X is available in red or white. The handlebar is a flatter, wider one, which should help with manoeuverability in the city. It gets all-black treatment, which extends to the alloy wheels.
This is the first time a Royal Enfield has been shipped with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres from the factory. It gets the same 346cc carburetted single-cylinder air-cooled engine from the Thunderbird 350. It generates 19.8bhp and 28Nm and transmits it via a five-speed gearbox. The wheels are a 19-inch front and an 18-inch rear. There are disc brakes at both ends, with a 280mm front disc and a 240mm rear one. The seat of the Thunderbird 350X has been changed – it is a more modern-looking one. The rider’s seat is wider, and the pillion seat is smaller.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X competes with the likes of the UM Renegade Sports S and Bajaj Dominar 400 directly. Bikes like the Yamaha Fazer 25 also cater to a similar audience, although it is a different format of motorcycle.
