Complete details of Thunderbird 500 Motorcycle

Launched in India in October 2012.

Of course, a beast at the first glance. The unstoppable and unmatched highway cruiser that typically stands out the legacy and tradition of RE is all about the all new stunning Thunderbird 500. Enjoying its monarchism of being alone in the competition, Royal Enfield products are always intended to be crowd-pullers.

Has the Thunderbird 500 gone premium? May be and perhaps, it might be an ultra-premium stuff for Indian riders who currently enjoy no essential features on their Bullets.

It's the time and the way to cruise with the cult Thunderbird 500.
