For its younger iteration of the Thunderbird 500, RE uses the same 346cc unit construction engine which powers all the 350cc bikes in its portfolio. Cosmetically, the bike has undergone a visible change as it gets a teardrop fuel tank, digital instrument cluster, LED tail light etc. Power is offered by the 4-stroke, Twinspark single cylinder engine.
Power comes from a 346cc, air-cooled, single cylinder engine yielding 19.80bhp at 5,250 RPM. There is enough torque for this bulky motorcycle which develops 28 Nm at 4000 RPM. Weighing 195 kg, Thunderbird 350 has a relatively low power to weight ratio which affects the performance.
Glaring the rider in the eye is the twin-pod instrument cluster that features an analogue speedometer, odometer, trip meter and it also shows low average economy. Other features aboard are fuel warning indicator, fuel gauge, low oil indicator, low battery indicator, engine kill switch and a grab rail for the pillion. Up front, a projection type headlight is fitted and rear is ornate with LED tail lamp.
