Stills from the visit:
Royal Enfield Motors launched a new advertising campaign in India designed to attract the younger spectrum of riders in the Indian market. The campaign features a hero-themed comic strip that appeals to younger rider’s sense of adventure by encouraging them to “Leave Home”.
The popular Indian Cars & Motorbikes blog recent published an article about the arrival of the Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Military here in the United States.
While the Military C5 is currently only sold in the U.S. market, the article draws attention to world-wide interest in the unique “Battle Green” Classic. The author also underscores the a few of the engineering differences between Indian domestic models and export models produced by Royal Enfield.
Here’s an excellent 2-part safety video featuring a BMW R90s that a friend from West Virginia was good enough to turn us on to. In addition to great information, these videos definitely have vintage appeal!
This is a cool older ad made for Royal Enfield. Notice that they use the name Enfield and not Royal Enfield. This puts the ad in at least pre 1999.
This is an older ad for the introduction of the Electra model in India (Note the Electra model sold in India is not the same as the Electra model sold in the USA. The name Electra originated because it was the first Royal Enfield with an electronic ignition).
The president of the Royal Enfield Association and frequent poster on our community forum Geoff Baker has developed a really fascinating project. Geoff has built a water injected high mileage diesel engine for his Royal Enfield motorcycle.Â To help raise awareness of fuel economy and being “green” he intends to ride from Nogales Mexico to Vancouver Canada (a distance in excess of 1,700 miles) using only 10 gallons of recycled vegetable oil “Bio-Diesel”. Sound crazy doesn’t it? I can assure you Geoff is not crazy.Â Geoff started with a Military model Royal Enfield and has adapted all sorts of devices from common materials to finish his project on a very slim budget.
A visit to his website will fill you in on all of the details of this great experiment
