Royal Enfield gets a new look

RE Classic 500

Iconic motorcycle brand Royal Enfield (RE) is set to sport a new identity and new colours across the globe pretty soon. Every new Royal Enfield motorcycle which goes on sale from this month onwards will adorn a new RE logo across its various models. The new RE logo is now fresher, more vibrant and contemporary – while rigidly holding on to its British-motorcycling roots. The new monogram has been inspired by the iconic Royal Enfield wings of the early era, as well as a new crest which still carries the ‘Made Like a Gun’ tag line.

Apart from this new identity RE have also introduced an array of colours across its models which include the RE Thunderbird 500 and 350 cruisers and the RE Classic 500 and 350 motorcycles. Both the Thunderbird variants (500 &350) are now available in three new colours schemes – Lightning, Stone and Marine. While the Classic variants sports five new colours, the Classic 500 is now available in Tan, Black and Silver, on the other hand the Classic 350 is available in Lagoon, Ash, Black and Silver.
