EIMOR Customs recently worked on a stock model of the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 and came forward with Black Magic edition. The name seems to be derived from its all-black look, that is totally mesmerizing and turns heads with its exclusive presence. First of all, after the modification, this typical Thunderbird has lost all the characteristics of a conventional cruiser and has moved more towards the direction of a Sportster.
EIMOR Customs inverted the curvy theme of the Thunderbird to achieve both side flat look, perfectly moving in a synchronized manner from the front fender to its tail. Everything seems perfect and thus, a lean machine attitude comes as a final result.
The fuel tank used here is smaller in comparison to that of the stock model, further confirmed through some visible part of the Royal Enfield frame. Thunderbird benefits from a stock black engine and thus, the surrounding components of this modified motorcycle have been finished in matt black to create ‘Black Magic’.
You can notice UM Renegade style rear fender that comes fitted with a baggage carrier instead of a rear seat. The rider would love Royal Enfield ‘Black Magic’ for its extra cushioned single seat. Apart from these changes, EIMOR Customs has installed an after-market exhaust system with dual pipes, black and chrome alloy wheels, a 15-inch rear wheel with 130-section tyre, and a 19-inch front wheel for a typical street-ruling look. Headlight used here is an aftermarket LED unit while no changes have been made to the Thunderbird’s highly useful instrument console.
The suspension, disc brakes and footpegs have been kept in a stock condition for utmost riding comfort. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 is powered by a 499cc, fuel-injected engine producing 27.2 BHP of maximum power at 5250 rpm and 41.4 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. In its stock condition, Royal Enfield offers an extra-large 20-litre fuel tank on the Thunderbird for extensive touring capabilities.
