Royal Enfield will update its 2016 line-up with new colours and graphics. These updates will be only applicable to the Classic, Electra and Bullet models, whereas the Thunderbird and Continental GT models will continue unchanged.
First up is the Classic 350, which will receive two new paint-jobs – ‘Chestnut Red’ and ‘Marshal Green’. The mudguards, fuel tank and side panels will feature the new paint shades, with the headlamp casing and front suspension cover tube will be finished in gloss black. Both the rider and the optional pillion seat will additionally get tan seat covers. The Classic 350 is currently offered in ‘Lagoon Blue’, ‘Ash’, ‘Black’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Maroon’ colours.
The Classic 500 will be offered with a new ‘Squadron Blue’ shade, with the all encompassing paint job cloaking the fuel tank, headlamp casing, side panels, front suspension cover tube, mudguards, the frame, swing-arm and even the engine mounting brackets. The minimalistic body graphics will be akin to the Classic Desert Storm 500. The Classic 500 is currently offered in ‘Classic Black’, ‘Classic Tan’ and ‘Classic Silver’ paint jobs.
The evergreen Electra 350 will receive two new colours – ‘Meridian Blue’ and ‘Marsala Red’. The fuel tank, side panels and headlamp casing will be sprayed with the new paint jobs, with the rest of the components will continue to be highlighted with a chrome finish. The seat is also expected to get a new Rexine cover. The Electra 350 is currently offered in ‘Red’, ‘Black’ and ‘Silver’. In other news, Royal Enfield is reportedly working on a 500 cc Electra.
The Bullet 500, currently offered in shades of ‘Forest Green’ and ‘Black’, will be offered with a new ‘Athena Grey’ paint job. The fuel tank, headlamp casing, side panels, front suspension cover tube and mudguards of the Bullet 500 will benefit from this new shade, while the seat is also expected to get a new Rexine cover.
The Classic Chrome, currently offered in ‘Classic Black’ and ‘Royal Maroon’ is also expected to get two new shades – ‘Athena Grey’ and ‘Forest Green’.
