The Thunderbird 500 is the big brother of the 350 and shares the same mill as the Classic 500. The Thunderbird 500 is powered by a 499cc single cylinder mill that produces 27.2bhp. The bike is underpinned by a single downtube chassis which uses the engine as a stressed member. The Thunderbird 500 gets an electric start, full instrument panel with digital trip meter. It's available in three colours-black, twilight black and a shade called flicker black.
