Most Popular Answers for Thunderbird 350
Can Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 be fitted with tubeless tyres? Is it possible to start the bike by electric start every time?

The tyres for the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 are tube type in stock condition but they can be converted into tubeless tyres. The advantage of tube type tyres is more visible if you go on roads where the chances of a dent in the wheel are more as the tubes would hold the air inside while the tubeless ones are useful in cities whereas you can easily repair a puncture in the motorcycle. You can start your motorcycle by electric starter every time as the battery keeps on charging itself while the bike is ridden afterwards.
