Royal Enfield loses UK distributor
No announcement yet on a replacement


Posted: 26 February 2013by Visordown News

ROYAL Enfield’s UK distributor, Watsonian Squire, is ending its relationship with the brand after more than a decade, leaving no official UK supplier for the Indian-made machines.

The official reason for the split is that Watsonian wants to “concentrate on other activities including the production of sidecars and luggage trailers” – which sounds to us like a corporate equivalent of the classic “he wants to spend more time with his family”.

We’d be surprised if a new Royal Enfield UK distributor wasn’t announced in the very near future.
