Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 & 350 launch on 11th October

The thump that binds is just going get louder with the launch of the new Thunderbird 500 on the 11th of October. Royal Enfield unveiled the bike at the 2012 Auto Expo. The second generation Thunderbird 500 could replace the predecessor and will be powered by the same air-cooled single cylinder 4-stroke Twin Spark motor that has been serving the Classic 500 and 350.

The new Thunderbird will be available in two variants – the 500 and the 350. Pricing will certainly be higher than the outgoing model.
