1 June, 2015 - Royal Enfield Even Further Back In Time - Despatch Riders
Royal Enfield Despatch Riders
Royal Enfield logo
#RoyalEndfield #DespatchRiders #Military - The vintage, if not classic, motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield has launched a limited series motorcycles, based on their hot selling Classic Bullet model, commemorating the military despatch riders. The new series is aptly called Despatch Riders, and not only involves 3 new models (or should I say paint jobs) but also a bucket load of clothing.


31 March, 2015 - The Electric Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle

Royal Enfield is an iconic and well establish motorcycle manufacturer with one model that has remained unchanged ever since Fred Flintstone roamed the earth. But one guy decided to push the vintage model into the 21st century; he made the Bullet 500 into an electric motorcycle. Impressive job.

3 June, 2013 - World’s Smallest Theater - A Royal Enfield Sidecar
Royal Enfield World Smallest Theatre
Royal Enfield logo
#Funny #Theater #RoyalEnfield - It's unbelievable but true. World's smallest theater is performed out of a Royal Enfield sidecar. It's run by The Grand Theatre of Lemmings, and has been in existence since the 1970's, although in the beginning it was not a Royal Enfield motorcycle but a Panther motorcycle. The owner of the motorcycle sidecar, a certain Marcel Steiner, heard someone joke about the big sidecar that "That sidecar is ridiculous! You could build a theatre in that sidecar". And that is exactly what he did.

Marcel toured the world with his smallest theater in the world, and for 30 years he performed for 100% sold out performances, not a single seat remained without a spectator... with only two seats in the sidecar it wasn't a big accomplishment.. but still, it's got to be a record.

Since the demise of world's smallest theater, it has recently been revived. The Grand Theatre of Lemmings have taken a Royal Enfield sidecar and fitted it with 2 seats and are now touring the UK with the gigantic production of King Kong. King Kong in a sidecar.... I got to see that!..........

12 September, 2012 - Royal Enfield Bike, As In Bicycle
Royal Enfield Bicycle
Royal Enfield logo
There you go, I never knew that the legendary motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield used to make bicycles. Royal Enfield used to be a British motorcycle manufacturer who also made bicycles (like many other manufacturers, then and now), and when they closed down the factories in the 1960s, transferring the production to India, it would appear that the bicycle section went to Japan.

The bicycles, like the motorcycles, are sturdy with class. However, it looks like they never went back into production. Pity. Maybe Royal Enfield India should consider making bicycles again.

Royal Enfield Leave Home Ad
Royal Enfield logo
Somehow companies in India make good ads. Bajaj, Hero and now Royal Enfield. As advertisements go, visually it's very simple, but the text is fun.

The idea behind the campaign is to get the younger generation to become independent, as the tag line says, "Leave Home". And the way to do it is to buy a Royal Enfield motorcycle.

For those of you who are like me, and can not sit through a whole hour in front of the TV seeing a motorcycle being built, or restored, here's the fast way.

A guy in India, with the help of some friends, restored a 1978 Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle from the ground up. He filmed the whole process, from start to finish, and using time-lapse, you can see his endeavor in only 2 minutes. Pretty impressive. In real life, it took 45 days.

We're used to seeing choppers made out of good old fashion American twin engines, usually Harley-Davidson or similar. You'll see an occasional European motorcycle manufacturer. But this chopper is anything but that.

The Spider Chopper is based on a Royal Enfield 350cc motorcycle. Apart from having a small engine, the bike itself is beautifully done. It's a work of art.

The Gloucestershire dealer of Royal Enfield motorcycle, BVM, had organized on the 14th of April a special race for Royal Enfield owners. Not a speed race, nor an endurance race, but a race to see who could beat the factory quoted Miles Per Gallon figure of 79 mpg.

Two categories Enfields were organized, motorcycles with EFI and ones with carburetors. The "race" was held on a 39 mile stretch of road.

The winner of the most economical run was a Royal Enfield Fury, riding the distance at 96.93 mph, the runner up did 92.76 and third best ran at 92.20 mpg. Despite riding a road with many steep climbs, they bettered the factory average by 22%.


23 March, 2012 - Got A Royal Enfield Motorcycle? Get Discount In A Pub
Royal Enfield Pub

The town of Redditch in the UK used to be the home of the Royal Enfield factory, from 1893 until 1967 when the motorcycle factory closed its doors and moved to India where it has been ever since.

2 years ago, a fantastic and award-winning pub opened in the former city of Royal Enfield, and was aptly named "The Royal Enfield". Located in the town's old cinema, it looks pretty good as far as pubs go.

But if you arrive on a post 1999 Royal Enfield motorcycle, the owner will give you a 10% discount on the food.

25 January, 2012 - Royal Enfield Car
1959 Berkeley B 95 Royal Enfield
Royal Enfield logo
Royal Enfield are a well established and long time manufacturer of motorcycles. In fact, they have the oldest model still in production. They used to be English, but are now based in India, and they produce some of world's best classic motorcycles.

They're not known for making fast motorcycles, you known... sportsbikes. They make classic, or shall I say vintage motorcycles that you can ride in the countryside, taking your time, enjoying the ride and views.

It's therefore a surprise to see a sportscar using a Royal Enfield engine. But it's true. This is the Berkeley B-95 LHD (Left Hand Drive). The car was built in 1959, and they only made 12 LHD units, 3 survived.


5 January, 2012 - Royal Enfield Unveils Thunderbird 500 - Cruiser Style

Royal Enfield logo
Royal Enfield, world's oldest motorcycle manufacturer with the same model, has unveiled a "new" motorcycle model. Called the Thunderbird 500 (there is already a popular Thunderbird 350), it's a course change for the English-then-Indian manufacturer. Their traditional model, the Bullet has been unchanged for decades. Now, they have made a more modern look-&-feel, with updated technology.

The Thunderbird is a touring motorcycle, styled like a cruiser. But you'll not find much chrome on this motorcycle, even the engine is black. The color choices for the new motorcycle are black, black and black (in fact, there are three colors black to choose from). The pillion seat can be removed, allowing you to carry luggage. There are even hooks for bungee cords.

Here are the specs...

This is a nice and smooth (no pun intended) TV commercial for the South African Three Ships Whiskey. It's a narrative advertisement (ie someone is talking over the ad), featuring prominently three Royal Enfield motorcycles traveling round the world.

The classic Royal Enfield is situated above the local and cheap motorcycles, and below the expensive imports, but for many affluent Indian bikers, they now have more choice.

How will Royal Enfield react?
