Everthing You Want To Know About the Royal Enfield Redditch Edition
This was actually a surprising move from Royal Enfield; the popular Cruiser manufacturer introduced special edition models for their Classic series towards the beginning of the New Year. The Classic 350 is the best selling motorcycles from Royal Enfield lineup and is the only motorcycle which has helped RE gain those amazing sales numbers.
The Classic is popular amongst the crowd for its old school styling and the new Redditch Edition will further give its sales figure a further boost. Redditch is a small town in UK which is located about 15 miles away South of Birmingham. This is the same town where the Royal Enfield Motorcycles were made.
The history says it all the Royal Enfield Redditch monogram first was used on the tank of prototype 125cc ’Royal Baby’ 2-stroke motorcycle in 1939. While due to World War 2 the plan of its production for the general public was put on hold but the motorcycle was adopted by the British armed forces. In 2008 the RE monogram, still encapsulated within a winged emblem was used on the Classic 350 when it was launched. The Classic monogram is still used in the Classic motorcycles engines of the present Classic, Desert Storm, Battle Green and Squadron Blue motorcycles, the Bullet 350 and 500, the Thunderbird cruisers and obviously the Thunderbird Cruisers as well and lastly on the Continental GT cafe racer.
Royal Enfield has garnered a huge amount of fans all around the globe with its traditional design language in its range of classic roadsters. After having a successful history with the ‘Bullet’ range, Royal Enfield upped the ante in the last decade by bringing in the range of ‘Classic’ roadsters.
Having the same heritage and retro appeal as that of the Bullet in terms of design and silhouette, the Classic, in both of its 350cc and 500cc versions, have become much improved versions with mildly enhanced styling and technological advancements in terms of new age suspension, better brakes and incorporation of technologies such as fuel injection.
After launching the bigger Classic 500 almost half a decade ago, Royal Enfield has tried to make the platform more elusive by adding few more variants to the Classic lineup, the Classic Squadron Blue being the latest of them. Being the top of the line model of the Classic portfolio, the Classic Squadron Blue comes with additional aesthetic appeal over the regular Classic 500 and more of it, below the skin as well. Here’s our comprehensive review of the flagship model of the Classic lineup, the Classic Squadron Blue.
