Along with the new Thunderbird 500X, Royal Enfield also introduced the new Thunderbird 350X in the Indian market on February 1, 2018.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2018 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X

2018 ROYAL ENFIELD THUNDERBIRD 350X DETAILS AND FEATURES
Visually, apart from different colour options, the new Thunderbird 350X is identical to the Thunderbird 500X. The Thunderbird X range features alloy wheels and tubeless tyres, a first for Royal Enfield. The ‘gunslinger’ styled seat coupled with the new grab-rail and shortened rear mudguard create custom style statement, while offering a cleaner, and a less cluttered look.
The blacked-out theme is uniformly carried over to components like the silencer, front forks, side covers, headlamp cover, indicators and grab-rail on both the models. In high contrast, the vibrant colours of the tank are coordinated with the stitching on the seat and rim-tapes on the wheels. The new flat handlebar has been dropped to give a more aggressive, and leaned-in and committed riding stance.
The Thunderbird X range will sport four new colours. While the Thunderbird 500X comes in Getaway Orange and Drifter Blue, the 350X is available in Whimsical White and Roving Red.
2018 ROYAL ENFIELD THUNDERBIRD 350X ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE

So, the Thunderbird 350X comes with a single cylinder, air cooled, twinspark, 346cc engine which produces a maximum power of 19.8 bhp @ 5250 rpm and generates a maximum Torque of 28 Nm @ 4000 rpm. Stopping power, similar to the 500X, is provided by disc brakes, both in front and rear, which are aimed to ensure adequate stopping power for safety and stability.
