Next-gen BSVI Royal Enfield Thunderbird spotted in India again

Team OD  | Updated: August 27, 2019, 04:14 PM IST

On the second instance, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird has been spotted on test. As seen in the spy images, the new motorcycle will ditch the twin-pod instrument cluster and instead house a semi-digital instrument cluster for information.

The new motorcycle carries a similar silhouette as the current generation Royal Enfield Thunderbird but gets updated styling elements. With the blacked-out alloy wheels and a dark paint theme running across the motorcycle, we believe the spotted test mule could be the Thunderbird X variant.

The platform appears to have undergone change as well, as the previous spy images show a new twin-down-pipe twin-cradle chassis. The engine still remains air-cooled but we expect it to be compliant to the stricter emission (BSVI) norms. As reported earlier in the Royal Enfield Classis spy shots, we believe the displacement of the motorcycle has gone up and the company may not sell similar motorcycles with two different engine sizes on offer. Similar treatment is expected across its portfolio.

Expect the company to unveil the new range of models by the year and the could go on sale early 2020. Expect a hike in price by Rs 10,000 and the BSVI updated model will cost between Rs 1.70-1.75 lakh ex-showroom.
