Royal Enfield was the brand name under which the Enfield Motor Cycle Company (founded 1909) manufactured motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. The first Royal Enfield motorcycle was built in 1901; the original British concern was defunct by 1970. The Enfield Cycle Company is responsible for the design and original production of the Royal Enfield Bullet, the longest-lived motorcycle design in history.
In 1955, Enfield Cycle Company partnered with Madras Motors in India in forming Enfield of India, based in Chennai, and started assembling the 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle in Madras. The first machines were assembled from components imported from England. Starting in 1957, Enfield of India acquired the machines necessary to build components in India, and by 1962 all components were made in India.
Royal Enfield produced bicycles at its Redditch factory until it closed in early 1967. The company’s last new bicycle was the ‘Revelation’ small wheeler, which was released in 1965. Production of motorcycles ceased in 1970 and the original Redditch, Worcestershire-based company was dissolved in 1971. Enfield of India continued producing the ‘Bullet’, and began branding its motorcycles ‘Royal Enfield’ in 1999. A lawsuit over the use of ‘Royal’, brought by trademark owner David Holder, was judged in favour of Enfield of India, who now produce motorcycles under the Royal Enfield name.

Enough has been speculated on the much anticipated Royal Enfield 750cc bike. This upcoming Royal Enfield motorcycle was recently spotted testing by Motorcyclenews.com.

We don’t have many more details at the moment. However, easily expect the upcoming Royal Enfield 750cc bike to cost around INR 3 lakhs when it goes on sale in India. While this would make it the most expensive RE motorcycle, it will still hold a definite edge over, say, the Street 750. Thanks to local manufacturing, the bike will enjoy a great pricing advantage. We feel that this 750cc Royal Enfield motorcycle can play a huge role in bringing high displacement biking closer to the masses.
It was earlier rumoured that the upcoming engine would have a V layout. However, it is now for sure that it will be a parallel-twin instead of a V-twin. This layout ensures that the new 750cc engine doesn’t require much space to be accommodated in an existing RE’s frame. Also, thanks to the large displacement, RE has decided to use an oil-cooler instead of air-cooling.
