Royal Enfield is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturing brands in the world. Founded in the year 1901, the British brand started off by producing motorcycles, lawnmowers, bicycles, stationary engines and, weapons. Royal Enfield still uses the motto ‘Made like a gun’, in the memory of its legacy. Royal Enfield motorbikes are known for their class, as well as, for their signature thump. Royal Enfield was acquired by Eicher Motors in the year 1994, which played an important role in the revival of the manufacturer. The brand continues to produce retro-styled and old-school motorcycles, which are the modernised models of the early Bullets from the 1950s, the fortunes of the brand have turned and it is now one of the fastest-growing bike manufacturers in the country. Models like Classic helped the company's growth to reach new heights, a few other models, however, like the now-discontinued single-cylinder Continental GT did not get a good response from the public.
The Royal Enfield in India did not have much competition, until the entry of international brands like Triumph and Indian Chief. Making the best use of its image as a lifestyle motorcycle brand, Royal Enfield has so far managed to hold its image despite a line-up in which some bikes are outdated. With a good presence in the Indian market, Royal Enfield is now focusing on widening its footprint at an international level. The company has already been making its presence felt on a global scale by the introduction of exclusive dealerships in the Gulf, Europe and the US. The Royal Enfield product range currently has the Bullet, Thunderbird, Classic, Interceptor 650, Continental GT 650 and the Himalayan. The Bullet, Thunderbird and Classic come in two variants that are powered by 350cc and 500cc engines. All the bikes from the brand reflect the company’s traditional character, however, there are a few models do get modern techs like projector headlamp, fuel injection and digital instrument cluster. ABS and a rear disc brake have also been added to this list for the whole range. With the launch of its first twin-cylinder motorcycles, the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650, the company has made things a lot more exciting. These are the latest twin-cylinder 650cc motorbikes that will make the brand more popular not just in India, but also globally, with their great pricing.
