I have been using ThunderBird TwinSpark for more than 2 years now. I am with different clubs.

It will give you a maximum mileage of 44kmpl

I have minimum mileage as 25kmpl

The values I have provided are practical.

Also, the maintainance can be anywhere from Rs.0 to Rs.5000 per month.

And if you want your vehicle good looking, you should spend a quality 1 hour per day.

thunderbird is very good bike but cost is too high... everage 45km/ltr...if u want to enjoy riding then go for it..but it is not faster as pulsar 220 ...its somthing different..once it covers 10 to 15 km...the pick up increases..yes its true..but after 80km/hr its not so good i mean vibrations..but upto 80km/hr no indian bike can beat it i mean the comfort..since one year i got min mileage of 38 n max of its left on u..

Royal EnfieldThunderbird is a great option for its power,style ,onroad image. However cost will be around 1 lac and mileage around 40kmpl. It will be the best selection provided price and mileage is not a constraint.Otherwise going for Hero Honda CBZ would be a ideal selection for its price, mileage and decent style.
