Royal Enfield is one of the oldest motorcycle brands in the world with a rich history. She was born in England in 1891 and initially specialized in the production of components for small arms. The first motorcycle was produced in 1901. Since then a huge number of motorcycles rolled off the Assembly line, Royal Enfield. In the late 60s, when Europe’s crisis erupted in monopropylene, Royal Enfield was bought by the Indian company at that time specializing in partial Assembly Royal Enfield motorbike for the needs of the Indian army and police. Since then, the legendary brand is going on the Indian plant in Chennai. 1984 bikes export to England and other European countries. Those cars that go abroad, have better build quality than the Indian specimens, and technical equipment.
