We have reported earlier that Royal Enfield is working on the new-generation RE Thunderbird 350 X that will see a release in coming months. Recently, a new more affordable variant of the 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X was spotted testing in the country. The camouflaged prototype features a new fuel tank with centrally located fuel filling knob and a split grab rail.
- The new Thunderbird 350 will witness minor design and feature upgrades.
- The bike might be based on an all-new platform.
- The 2020 RE Thunderbird 350 is likely to come with a more powerful engine.
You can notice the rear brake on the right side and chain on the left side of the rear tyre. Unlike the previously spied test mules that have new split seats, the affordable variant of the 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X retains the existing single piece seat. The blackened rear suspension is devoid of chrome finish.
The 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X will also receive new round LED DRLs around the headlamp, blacked out alloy wheels, low set turn indicators, a new circular taillamp and a dark paint scheme. There will be a new single-pod instrument console with a LCD screen positioned between the analogue speedometer. Read – All-New Royal Enfield Classic 350 To Get Alloy Wheels, Wind Deflector
