“The new colours of the Classic has 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 on the introduction of these new colours.
