Royal Enfield Thunderbird Specifications (350cc)

All data that you see below is from the Royal Enfield site as of 08 Feb, 2005. Don’t worry, nothing much has changed in terms of the Thunderbird specifications over the last few years (and this data is pretty much upto date, till this model went out of production many years later.)

The only few things that’s changed from what my motorcycle specifications to the 2nd generation Thunderbird are:

  1. Thunderbird comes with a different ignition system.
  2. The paint scheme has changed.
  3. It now has auto start.

They’ve tried, but the vehicle characteristics pretty much remain the same. Nothing much can change the quirks and tantrums of the basic Bullet platform I guess.
