Apart from introducing a completely new logo, Royal Enfield has also refreshed the colour palette for the Classic 350 and Classic 500 models. The Royal Enfield Classic 350 gets the options of ‘Lagoon’ which is essentially blue, ‘Ash’ which is white, apart from the regular Classic black and Classic silver colour shades. The company has discontinued sea green and maroon shades on the palette that have been replaced by the new colours. This move seems to have been done after taking customer feedback into consideration.
The Classic 500 on the other hand gets an all new Classic Tan colour shade with a maroon stripe running across the bike from the front mudguard till the tail light. The Classic black and silver shades are also offered on the 500 model. Apart from the new colour options, Royal Enfield will continue to offer the Classic Chrome, Battle Green and Desert Storm paint options, which are priced at a premium over the standard model. While the old colours are good, the new ones inject freshness in these retro British branded bikes.
Another popular model, the Thunderbird (both 350 and 500) also received new colour options which include ‘Lightning’ brown and ‘Marine’ blue. Royal Enfield’s entire lineup now features a revised instrument cluster sporting the new logo and monogram. The company is working on expanding its production plants to reduce the waiting period for its products. The waiting period on all Royal Enfield bikes now stands at under four months, which is a big relief for prospective buyers. Royal Enfield’s last launch was the Continental GT and the company has no new products in the pipeline.
