The 2020 Royal Enfield Thunderbird has been spotted testing again, this time around with what looks like a bunch of accessories that may be offered with the production-spec Thunderbird. This particular Royal Enfield Thunderbird test mule is kitted with a windscreen that appears to be non-adjustable. In addition, there are a set of chrome mounts for attaching panniers or saddle bags.

Royal Enfield could be possibly testing a few touring accessories on the new Thunderbird. You can also spot a crash guard and chrome bar-end weights on this Thunderbird test motorcycle. Besides these accessories, the test mule in these images looks identical to the one that was spotted a couple of months ago.

As we had reported earlier, Royal Enfield seems to be testing different variants of the Thunderbird and we suspect this could be the X model. Some of the design details that catch your eye are the large fuel tank, short fender and the round LED tail-lamp.

The riding position has also been altered on the new Thunderbird. The rider’s foot pegs have been pushed ahead by a few inches, resulting in a typical cruiser-style position.

Royal Enfield is expected to introduce the new Thunderbird with BS6-compliant 350cc and 500cc engines and we expect the company to introduce the bike soon.
