This Custom Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 By EIMOR Is Purpose Built For Long Distance Touring!

The cruiser gets Tripper navigation from the Meteor 350, bespoke seats and saddle stays for added convenience

Motorcycle Customisation workshops across the globe love Royal Enfield bikes for their simple design and architecture. We have covered many custom-built motorcycles in the past, and we have picked them for their uniqueness and exceptional design. This particular custom bike based on the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 was made for a client by the popular Hyderabad-based EIMOR Customs.

EIMOR Customs has christened it ‘the Slayer’, and this custom Thunderbird has everything that one can expect from a bespoke bike.

The bike also gets its very own custom-built luggage stays

Let us start with the seats. The custom Thunderbird has a removable rear seat for when the owner wishes to ride solo. Further, the custom bike builder gave the owner two configurations for the pillion seat and the backrest. The primary saddle is used for long rides, while the other seat is designed for short city rides. The bike also gets it’s very own custom-built luggage stays for the convenience of the owner. To further aid touring capabilities, the custom Thunderbird has been fitted with aftermarket alloy wheels. It uses fatter tyres at both ends.

It gets a combination of Matte grey and Gloss Black color scheme which adds a subtle and sophisticated appearance

The Slayer features a bespoke paint scheme done in a combination of Matt grey and Gloss Black to give the cruiser an understated yet sophisticated look.

According to EIMOR custom, the most challenging part of this particular built was to incorporate the original Royal Enfield Google assisted Navigation system onto an old Thunderbird. This is the same system available with the Meteor 350 as standard. Besides the Tripper navigation system, EIMOR Customs also incorporated a digital speedometer on the bike to go with the overall look and feel.

Besides the bespoke seat and paint it also features many other aftermarket accessories

Some other noticeable modern touches made to the Thunderbird include a new aftermarket LED Headlight that replaced the stock halogen headlamp unit, new exhausts, and comfortable handlebars which the client has chosen. Lastly, it also gets LED bar end lights to increase visibility on pitch dark roads.

The motorcycle hasn’t received any updates to the engine. The custom Thunderbird 500 still uses the stock 499cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces around 27.57 PS of peak power and 41.3Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a five-speed gearbox.
