Royal Enfield is known as a motorcycle manufacturing company headquartered in Chennai, India but originated in London. The first-ever Royal Enfield bike came into existence in 1901 and was introduced during London’s Stanley Cycle Show. The unique motorcycle had a 1.5 horsepower engine with a long rawhide belt controlling the rear wheel.
Eight years later, Royal Enfield launched its original V-twin sporting a 297cc Motosacoche engine. And in 1914, the first two-stroke motorcycle was produced. Developments ceased for a decade due to Britain’s involvement in World War I. More prototypes emerged from 1924, including the company’s “Ladies Model.”
Today, Royal Enfield is an iconic name for a motorcycle with a robust build and customisation options with quality exhaust systems.
