Indiatoday ---- "With an overall black theme, the Thunderbird 350 comes in three distinct shades - Stone, understated matte finish and rugged texture capturing the effortless strength of the legend; Flicker, blackest of blacks which stays pure forever and is a fitting tribute to the rider’s spirit; and Twilight, an inspired blue-black finish that stands for the rider who stays steady under the changing skies."
Motorbeam ---- "Power comes in through the same 346cc UCE engine which uses TwinSpark and produces 19.8 BHP of power at 5250 RPM and 28 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM. This air-cooled engine is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox and uses a carburetor instead of fuel injection seen on the Thunderbird 500. With production of around 10,000 units per month, the company believes prospective Thunderbird customers will not see any waiting period and can purchase their cruisers off the shelf."
