Verdict

The Royal Enfield Thunder 350 is a motorcycle that is built for munching miles on the highway. The comfortable riding posture, projector headlight and rear disc brake make touring on the motorcycle effortless. The Thunderbird 350 can be handful in the city to ride and getting used to and we also desired better refinement from the motor.

Thunderbird 350 Expert Review

Here is what our experts feel about Thunderbird 350

The Royal Enfield Thunderbird has been one of the most viable cruiser options in the market in its price bracket, since its inception in the Indian market. The limited presence of competitors, a superb option in a very niche segment and the 'Royal Enfield' tag has earned a huge fan following and large sales volumes for Royal Enfield. It is this model which changed the perceptions of people towards Royal Enfield and began to consider them as a modern player. The Thunderbird 350 in its latest guise is an even more desirable option to have as well.

 
Let's start with the styling. The Thunderbird 350 continues to carry the same silhoutte as before, which is not a bad thing at all, considering the older one was a delight to look for. Where the Royal Enfield has played with are the various  bits and components, which enhance its modern appeal. For instance, the headlamp now incorporates a projector headlamp with an LED ring surrounding it. The round chrome finished mirrors make out the way for larger blackened mirrors. The round tail lamp has been replaced by a small elliptical LED tail light which looks nice. The other components which are new as well are the meatier exhaust pipe, present generation switchgear and an all new instrument console, which is a two pod unit and is the most informative unit found in a Royal Enfield ever. The left pod showcases an analog speedometer and the right one displays an analog tachometer, incorporating a small rectangular LCD display showing fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter. Overall fit and finish has improved drastically over previous Thunderbird, but still has a small room for improvement even now.
 
The engine, more or less, is the same unit found in Classic 350 and the older Thunderbird, which is  able to make out 20 PS of power and 28 Nm of torque. The Thunderbird has always been renowned as a torque monster, and this one taking the legacy even further. The engine has the same characteristic exhaust note as any other Royal Enfield, though sounds much more refined than earlier, and seems smooth in lower rev range , where the torque is present in abundance and is the Thunderbird's forte. It's only at around the redline where it begins to give its breath and be out of its comfort zone. The five speed gearbox is a clunky unit, but the ratios exploit the availability of torque very well.

 

Being a cruiser, the Thunderbird 350's top most priority is to be an able handler and comfortable machine, and it delivers on this aspect by a huge margin. The upraised handlebar and forward set foot pegs give it a typical cruiser feel, and a cushy seat rounds off a comfortable seating position. The suspension setup of front telescopic forks and rear gas charged coil springs work just the way you want to, and even on long stretches, it proves to be a non-tiring mile muncher. The brakes are all new units with discs at both ends, and though a bit rubbery, work much better than the old drum units. Unlike the earlier skinny tyres, the new ones are much meatier and provide good levels of grip.
That said, the Thunderbird 350 has always been regarded as a perfect cruiser, and given the Royal Enfield branding, it can be easily bought without any second thought, given the amount of heritage it carries behind. It is a perfect tool for weekend rides and long highway touring, as no motorcycle comes close to it, for the time being.
