2013 RE Thunderbird 500 & 350

Not my cup of tea but I think it looks a lot nicer than the other light-mid weight "cruisers" out there once you ditch some of those modern touches.  Another article said the (alleged) Cafe Racer might be at the same price point.  How much is Rs 1.82 lakh by the time something lands in the US or UK?

Ugh.  They are as hideous as early 80s Japanese cruiser wannabes no matter which way you slice it.

I'm guessing that since 500cc bikes normally cost 1.5 lakh, and 1.8 lakh comes out to about $700 USD equivalent more, if there was a US version, the Thunderbird would be $1000-1500 more than the stock bike.
