The Royal Enfield Classic 500 Squadron Blue is a tribute from the automaker to the Indian Air Force that has been using its motorcycles since the 1950s.
The Classic is Royal Enfield’s flagship and the best selling product and the automaker has launched a new Squadron Blue colour for the Classic 500 range of motorcycles which will now be available at all the dealerships at a price of Rs. 1,93,372/- (on-road, Mumbai).
The new Squadron Blue colour has been introduced to pay a tribute to the Indian Air Force which is using Royal Enfield motorcycles since the 1950s and the most popular use of these bikes is done by the Air Force police. The bike takes inspiration from the post-war design of Royal Enfield machines.
Royal Enfield is the world’s oldest continuous producer of motorcycles and its association with the armed forces can be traced back during World Wars where it was used by the British Army. The Indian Army started using these motorcycles in 1952 when it ordered 800 units while the production in India started in 1955.
The new Squadron Blue colour will be offered alongside the existing colour options and will be powered by the same 500cc engine with no mechanical changes at all. Royal Enfield is about to launch the much awaited Himalayan in March which will mark the automaker’s entry into the adventure-touring segment.
