Difference between new 2012 thunderbird 500cc and 350cc
« on: October 25, 2012, 06:16:41 AM »
Hi, what is major difference Royal enfield thunderbird 500cc and Royal enfield thunderbird 350cc launched recently. I know the 500cc has 500 engine and 350 has 350cc engine, so obviously their power output is different but what are other changes than engine size ? Is it only reason that new 500 is 40K dearer than 350 TB ?

There is a good difference among both, first of all, the TB 500 is costlier than TB 350, new TB is Rs. 1.82 ex showrom Delhi, while the 350cc is 1.43 lacs (ex showroom Delhi) , now in terms of engine, the TB 500 has bore of 500 cc while the 350 has 350 cc and hence 500cc is is more powerful. Another major difference is that Thunderbird 500 comes with FI technology while TB 350 has a carburetor, other than that , you can see difference in stickers, rest is same in both.

RE thunderbird 500 is costlier and bulkier and have more power. If you really like power then go for TB 500 :)
