The engine produces a maximum power of 27.2 bhp @ 5250 rpm and maximum torque of 41.3 Nm @ 4000 rpm. Mated with 5 speed transmission, the Thunderbird 500 converts nothing.

In fact the Royal family was missing a sporty and a fully cruiser motorcycle. Hopefully, the all new rockstar, the Thunderbird 500 now will have a mass business across the country.
