Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield has updated its existing product line-up in India with new colours. The company has introduced nine colours â€” four new colours for its retro street model Classic, three colours for the Bullet and one colour each for its highway cruiser Thunderbird and the Continental GT cafe racer.
"The new colours of the Classic have been carefully chosen to bring alive the authenticity of the Classic's post war design. The Classic is a well-loved motorcycle and every iteration of it has been eagerly anticipated. We had to be very careful with the colours as just any old shade of green or chestnut wouldn't have been good. So we chose a very vintage-y mint green and similarly the chestnut with an old patina," said Rudratej (Rudy) Singh, President Royal Enfield.
While the Continental GT cafe racer has been introduced in a GT Green variant, the oldest motorcycle in continuous production, the Bullet, gets a new Marsh Grey in the 500cc variant. The Bullet 350 Electra has also been introduced in two new colours â€” Maroon and Blue â€” while Royal Enfield's cruiser motorcycle Thunderbird now comes in Asphalt. The existing colours for the Bullet â€” Silver, Red and Black â€” will continue to be available for customers. The new Asphalt will be available for both the Thunderbird 350 and Thunderbird 500 variants.
The bookings for 2016 line-up are now open at all Royal Enfield dealerships.
