Royal Enfield is working round the clock on its new and upcoming models. Earlier, a test mule of the revised Classic was spotted, then we got to see the updated instrument cluster and switchgear of the same model, and now there are a couple of spy shots of the upcoming Royal Enfield Thunderbird X.
We are saying X because we aren’t sure whether it’s the X 350 or the X 500. But whatever the case may be, chances are that the new changes will be implemented in both the models.
So the spy shots of the Thunderbird X reveal the rear end of the bike. We can see a circular tail light instead of a rectangular one of the current model. The rear fender appears to have been shortened. The license plate has been placed much lower. The turn signals are of the same shape but are now placed lower. This entire new setup gives the bike a more retro charm. We don’t think RE would use LEDs anywhere at the back.
We still don’t know how the front end of the new Royal Enfield Thunderbird X would look like. It’s being expected that not much changes would have been incorporated there.
As far as the engine is concerned, the new models should be BS6 compliant and for that RE would implement a few changes. We aren’t expecting to see any hike in the power or torque figures but we would indeed like to have more refinement and fewer vibrations.
