Royal Enfiled has launched the Thunderbird 500X in India. It gets a lot of features that are first-of-its-kind on a Royal Enfield like - new matte black alloy wheels instead of wire-spoked wheels, tubeless tyres, and a matte black silencer. The Thunderbird 500X also comes with a new handlebar, black casing for the projector headlamp and LED taillamp and a new single seat instead of the split seats from the standard Thunderbird.
