The black leather seat has been updated to offer greater comfort to the rider and the pillion rider as well. The custom motorcycle features a leather wrapped grab rail at the back offering convenient experience to the pillion rider, while the taillight sports a completely different appearance. Instead of the protruding chunky LED taillight of the stock Thunderbird 500, the custom motorcycle gets a sleek horizontal LED strip with integrated indicators enhancing its premiumness.

Both the front and rear mudguards have been updated and they come with shorter look. The custom motorcycle is painted in matte black with Grey body graphics and the pearl White painted fuel tank with gold leaf lettering and black pinstripes enhance the visual appeal of the Thunderbird 500.
