Royal Thunderbird 500

It’s always a exciting prospect when Enfield launches a new flagship. The Chennai based company has churning out a steady stream of almost since the days of the Raj and if was to look at the kind of bikes the made then and what’s out of the factory gates right they might be forgiven for little has changed in over the five decades or so. But they’d be wrong.

Classically styled and nostalgia they might be, but the boffins at Enfield have slowly, but modernising the motorcycles they at this juncture they offer a very interesting mix of old and new in a way nobody has really done so

The last big jump we saw what the named Classic 500 — a that looks like a Bullet, but is powered by a modern 500cc electronic fuel engine which shot to status in the company’s line-up. And we loved it in every way. So you can then that when RE that a new flagship was coming out in the of the Thunderbird, it left us a little

Let me get this one fact out of the way. not what you might call an but I’ve had the opportunity of clocking a few kilometres on the older Twinspark Thunderbird during the 2009 Enfield Himalayan Odyssey. the bike certainly managed to me, it still wasn’t the quintessential for me, and that slot always to bikes like the Machismo 500 and more recently the Classic/Desert 500.

And I absolutely adore bikes, so it was with natural that I approached this new 500.

It’s got the ‘Machismo’

In the way it looks is. While an average Joe might difficulties distinguishing an RE Classic a Standard, there is no mistaking new Thunderbird 500 for anything else on the Now everyone, including myself, had seen the T-bird 500 in January year at the 2012 Auto in Delhi, and based on that I had formed an opinion on the way it looks.

Let’s just say that it a very positive one.

But seeing the bike standing in of me in our office parking, I realised I mustn’t have seen the at the Expo very properly and how my opinion had been so far. The is absolutely striking any way you look at it. the overall proportions of the original (which has been around for the 10 years by the way) have maintained, the new bike is full of changes, both aesthetic and that gives it a very aura.

In an unfaired bike, the engine is a member of the design and forms a big of the aesthetic appeal. In the first T-bird, the archaic AVL engine had somewhat of an eyesore. This was revised when the AVL was swapped out for the UCE mill in 2008.

Four hence however, the design at RE have taken a very approach with the fuel-injected UCE motor that has been into this new T-bird. is that dull aluminium replaced by a full matte treatment to the crankcase while the features a similar flat finish, albeit with edges on the cooling fins. The is absolutely stunning and vastly of what you find on some of the engines on the Harley-Davidson Sportsters.

The new tank with increased

The fuel tank has also enlarged, and while we shall the benefits of this a little combined with new engine it gives the bike a much muscular stance. Then are all the little details such as the new assembly housed inside the headlight, the new blue backlit with a tacho as well as an LCD the split seat, new smaller redesigned rubberised footpegs, a new LED lamp assembly, a completely exhaust pipe. the list is endless. And in the classic case of You can it any colour as long as it’s the Thunderbird 500 is offered in three of black, which normally been a major downer, but in will all the new bits, the end result is impressive.
