Royal Enfield has finally added alloy wheels to the official accessory list for the Classic (350, 500) and Thunderbird (350, 500) models, priced at Rs 10,000 (Rs 11,000 including installation and taxes). These machined alloy wheels have already reached Royal Enfield dealers in Maharashtra.
The alloy wheels have also been added to the company’s website in the accessories section. These alloy wheels can be used with both, standard and tubeless tyres. This means existing owners of Classic and Thunderbird models with wire-spoke wheels can upgrade to the new alloys. The wheels also come with a two-year warranty from Royal Enfield.
The black 9-spoke wheels with the machined finish highlight on each spoke appear similar to the ones that come as standard on the Thunderbird X models, suggesting these could be the same wheels. The grey bike in the image is also equipped with other official accessories like an engine guard (Rs 3,450), luggage rack (Rs 2,400), knuckle guard and headlight guard.
Royal Enfield is also expected to add the alloy wheel option to the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 in the future.
