involvement in the World Wars from their classic wartime Royal Enfield
Motorcycles will be available in two different colours in India – Desert Storm
Despatch and Squadron Blue Despatch. In the international markets a 3rd
Battle Green Despatch will also be available. The olive green tint of the
Battle Green Despatch is not allowed to be sold on motorcycles in India as per
law hence the variant will not be available in the country. The finish of the
entire motorcycle from the panels to the exhaust systems are all finished in a
flat matte finish with the body panels finished in a camouflage paint job, in
addition to some particular detail differences from the production Classic 500
from Royal Enfield.
units of each of the colours of motorcycles will be made. A total of 600
Despatch motorcycles will be up for grabs online on www.store.royalenfield.com . The
price will be disclosed only on July 15th when the motorcycle will
be available for order online.
Lal, MD & CEO, Eicher Motors Ltd. said; “Each Royal Enfield Despatch
motorcycle has been handcrafted using a unique film transfer technique that
uses a delicate and precise hands-on process to transfer the camouflage pattern
on the motorcycle’s skin. Each body panel of each motorcycle requires
specialized and dedicated personnel skills. When these panels are assembled on
a single motorcycle; the result is a signature camouflage pattern for each
individual machine. Hence, no two motorcycles have the exact same design –
making each motorcycle the only one of its kind to ever roll out of the
the global debut of the Despatch motorcycles, Royal Enfield has also launched a
flagship gear store at Khan Market where the company will be selling their
bespoke Royal Enfield riding gear, accessories and clothing collection. More
such stores across the country and around the globe are in the books, though
certain international markets already have Royal Enfield apparel stores
commented; “One of the major gaps that our customers have faced while
adventuring on our motorcycles around the country is the lack of good
motorcycle apparel and accessories. We believe that with our expanded offering
of purpose built, meticulously detailed and well crafted motorcycle gear, our
riders will enjoy their motorcycling experience even more. We have also got a
wider range of urban protection and moto-inspired clothing which enhances the
motorcycling experience in cities or for weekend rides, and looks great when
one’s not riding as well.”
