    Default Expecting Royal Enfield Thunderbird

    Hi All,

    I had booked Royal Enfield Thunderbird (red)in May 2012. The dealer informed me yesterday that its ready for delivery and I can have have in 10-12 days after making payment.

    Is there anyway to find out from engine number or frame number that the bike I am going to get the recently manufactured and I am not being sold some rejected or older piece?

    Appreciate if anyone can please share their experience.

    Regards,
    Satyen.

    Thanks satyenpoojary,

    Though that article is not complete , I could guess that mine is 2012 model from the 10th letter.
    Also , 11th letter is G , so I could guess if that's for month then its a July model.

    Is that correct? are other letter of any importance?

    I saw the bike at dealer's warehouse and I was happy with it. I have paid the balance amount and should get it in the beginning of September.

    Can anyone suggest a good place in Mumbai to buy crash bar , saree guard and other items?

    I am looking for a crash bar like the one attached.

    Regards,
    Satyen.

    I was talking about workshop manual not owners manual. As engine and most of the electricals are shared between classic 350 and TBTS so this manual is very helpful but any ways i was just trying to help.
