The oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, Royal Enfield made its first motorcycle in 1901. While Royal Enfield’s roots are British, its soul is Indian. This cultural mix is reflected in their motorcycles which are a joint labour of love between the European headquarters in Bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire, where their purpose built state of the art Research & Development works in tandem with the company’s other technical centre in Chennai, India.
Royal Enfield has enjoyed exponential growth over the past five years and the brand is now a key player in the global mid-size motorcycle market. The Interceptor 650 is testament to this success; the motorcycle has garnered a number of achievements and awards, including holding the top spot for the UK’s bestselling naked bike for a full calendar year as well as being the best-selling bike across all categories in the month of June 2020. For the second year running the Interceptor 650 has won the prestigious title of MCN’s “Retro Bike of the Year 2020”.
Looking ahead, Royal Enfield will remain focused and committed to their core mission; to reinvent the mid-sized space with the production of motorcycles that are evocative, accessible and above all, great fun to ride.
