Should You Buy It?
Thunderbird 350 is the most heavily loaded variant in the 350 cc Royal Enfield lineup. It is capable of bringing more than 750 km of driving range in a single full fuel tank. Currently, it is the first choice of people looking for typical touring motorcycle.This point becomes highly debatable as apart from looks, Renegade Commando has nothing else to justify its direct competition with Royal Enfield Bullet 500.
