Royal Enfield, the motorcycle brand of Eicher Motors, has launched a new colour of Classic 500 range of motorcycles in Squadron Blue. According to the company, the new colour variant has been inspired by the Indian Air Force and is a tribute by Royal Enfield for its long standing history with Air Force officers.
"The Classic 500 Squadron Blue is a tribute to Royal Enfield's war time presence and association with the armed forces. We wanted a variant with a genuine armed forces heritage for our customers," said Rudratej Singh, president, Royal Enfield.
