Royal Enfield has launched the much-anticipated Thunderbird 500 X ABS at Rs 2.13 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). This represents a price hike of a little over Rs 14,000 over the non-ABS version of the motorcycle. Moreover, the launch of the Thunderbird 500 X ABS likely means curtains down for the non-ABS version.
The Thunderbird 500 X is a factory-made custom version of the Thunderbird cruiser. The 500 X features several styling elements that help it differentiate itself from the standard Thunderbird. The most prominent among them are the bright-coloured tank, colour-coordinated rim stickers and 9-spoke alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres. The cruiser sports a black-themed bodywork that contrasts well with the two colour options (Getaway Orange & Drifter Blue) it offers.
Royal Enfield is now one step closer towards equipping its entire range of motorcycles with ABS as the Classic, the Himalayan and the normal Thunderbird series of motorcycles have already received the life-saving feature.
