Passion, rebellious and single-handed reign – these three words truly define the path and philosophy of Royal Enfield towards two wheeler motoring. The immense fan base and the customer centric approach with its built-to-taste products, beautiful and fun filled rides and various programs make sure that no other motorcycle manufacturer in the mass market segment is as passionate towards motorcycling as Royal Enfield. The fact that Royal Enfield has chosen a path to make an altogether different kind of motorcycles and segments like retro roadsters, café racers, cruisers and now an adventure tourer truly signify the rebellious nature of Royal Enfield, where other manufacturers are busy in the rat race of churning volumes through commuters, scooters and sportbikes, none of which is manufactured by Royal Enfield, and it has no plans of making them in future as well. And lastly, the fact that it hasn’t been challenged by any other manufacturer till date, with no direct rivals to its motorcycles, has ensured that Royal Enfield is the sole player and ruler of its own playground.

Talking about one of the categories in which Royal Enfields has its mastery, the cruiser segment has not seen an alternative to the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 since the motorcycle made its inception in the Indian market almost a decade ago. Yes, Bajaj did came with the various versions of Avenger, but then, it is strategically positioned much below the Thunderbird 350, in terms of powertrain and pricing. The Thunderbird 350, on its very first arrival, was an altogether fresh wave of change from the otherwise retro styled roadsters under the ‘Bullet’ brand. Branded as a leisure motorcycle which is a treat for those who plan for long distance touring most of times, the Thunderbird 350, after the Classic 350, is the highest volume bringer for Royal Enfield. So high is the charm, aura and demand of the Thunderbird 350 is that even after decade long existence, counting in the four years of the current generation version, the motorcycle still commands a waiting period of almost 2-4 months. Yes, there is a 500cc version of the Thunderbird too, but then, it is targeted only for a niche audience who value performance more than any other aspect.

So, what all things and traits do make the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 such a special motorcycle in the hearts of enthusiasts? What could have been a better way to take the motorcycle itself for a spin and find out!

Now we have got some really good news for the Royal Enfield fans of India. Motorcyclenews.com recently spotted testing a completely new motorcycle in Spain. Royal Enfield definitely has proved their capability in the Indian market and which is quite evident from their recent sales figures. Their last few launches include the Continental GT and the Himalayan. Now both these motorcycle actually are powered by two newly developed engines while the Continental GT uses a single cylinder 535 cc unit which evolved from the 500 cc unit and is also Royal Enfield’s most powerful unit on offer while the Himalayan too uses a newly developed 410 cc engine.

The motorcycle which was caught testing was actually a test mule which used the Continental GT chassis but what was more interesting is the fact for the first time it uses what it looks like 750 cc parallel twin engine which was spied for the first time. This when launched will definitely be the most powerful engine that Royal Enfield has ever offered in the Indian market even leaving behind the 535 cc, sin gle cylinder air cooled unit that the Continental GT uses.

From what it looks like the new Royal Enfield model which was caught testing especially with the new engine was a carbureted unit instead of a fuel injected unit which we all expected. This carbureted engine actually means that the new motorcycle is meant especially for the Indian market keeping all the European emission norms in mind.

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 Battle Green being one of them. Being the top of the line model of the Classic portfolio, the Classic Battle Green 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 Battle Green:-

Till date, Royal Enfield has been creating and selling motorcycles which have been managed to retain the heritage and retro appeal of the motorcycles which it used to sell in the yesteryears. Though all of its motorcycles now use contemporary components, features and powertrain, they still look as if they are stuck to the original models as far as design, appeal and functionality are concerned.

Also, all of the motorcycles by Royal Enfield are destined to take only the smooth patches of roads, whether of short or long distance. This means that, Royal Enfield was absent from the scene of the now very dwelling segment of adventure tourers. Royal Enfield did feel the sense of an adventure motorcycle in its product portfolio, which is why it took nearly four years to properly engineer and design its first ever such motorcycle, the all new Himalayan.

The Himalayan brings a lot of new things to the table – an all new engine, all new chassis, all new design language, and most importantly, all new functionality of performing on both on and off road terrains with equal ease. Here’s our comprehensive review of the all new Royal Enfield Himalayan.

It’s a no hidden fact that the Royal Enfield Bullet has achieved a cult status in the Indian automotive history. Born as a usual 350cc bare bones motorcycle in 1948, nobody would have thought that the Bullet would go on having the longest production run of any motorcycle in its entire history.

It’s almost more than half a decade, and the Royal Enfield Bullet still continues to charm a many. The timeless retro looks, the torque filled engine and the characteristic ‘dug dug’ exhaust note have made the Bullet an icon which now it is. Over the years, the Royal Enfield Bullet has received a lot of changes and upgrades, the most prominent of which was the fitment of the Unit Construction Engine (UCE) sourced from the Thunderbird Twinspark. The engine replaced the age old cast iron engine, which was eventually phased out in 2011.

For the year 2014, Royal Enfield introduced a couple of changes to its flagship Bullet, the Bullet 500, owing to the revamp which the Royal Enfield’s identity took. Here’s a quick look on one of the most successful motorcycles in the history of two wheeler motoring, the Royal Enfield Bullet 500.

After having a successful history with its ‘Bullet’ range of retro roadsters, Royal Enfield launched the ‘Classic’ range of motorcycles in the Indian market. The ‘Classic’ sub-brand was introduced so as to allure more and more youth customers towards the brand, which was attracting only the typical ‘Royal Enfield Bullet’ fans towards itself.

The ‘Classic’ range kicked off in India with the Classic 350 going on sale almost half a decade ago. But it seemed that Royal Enfield didn’t wanted to stop there itself, which is why it went one step ahead and came up with the Classic 350. Basically, the Classic 500 shares its soul with both the Bullet 350 as well as the Classic 350, and comes as a performance upgrade for all those who want to step up from the 350cc motorcycles of the manufacturer. For making it a motorcycle of today’s day and age, Royal Enfield equipped the motorcycle with front disc brake, fuel injection, contemporary switch gear with engine kill switch and many more.

All the modern day features were equipped in the Classic 500 so as to make a motorcycle which feels retro and modern at the same time. The motorcycle was recently given a small makeover with new color options and minute cosmetic and mechanical changes. Here’s a quick look on the new Royal Enfield Classic 500.
