The Royal Enfield Classic 500 gets Chrome Green and Classic Chrome Grey while the Classic 350 gets Mint and Chestnut. Commenting on the new colours for Royal Enfield Classic, Rudratej Singh, president of Royal Enfield said “ The new colours of the Classic have been carefully chosen to bring alive the authenticity of the Classic’s post war design. The Classic is a well-loved motorcycle and every new iteration of it has been eagerly anticipated. We had to be very careful with the colours as just any old shade of green or chestnut wouldn’t have been good. So we chose a very vintage-y mint green and similarly the chestnut with an old patina”. The Royal Enfield Classic is priced at Rs 92,063 (on-road, Delhi).

There new paint scheme on the Continental called GT Green, which draws inspiration from Britain’s racing history. “The GT Green colour borrows its inspiration from the British racing history where the colour was particularly well loved. It brings out the GT’s classic racing credentials and is a heritage extension after the GT Red and GT Yellow”, said Singh. The GT Green is priced at Rs 2,16,246 (on-road, Delhi).

The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 dons a new Marsh Grey paint job with copper coloured Madras pinstripes, while the Bullet 350 Electra gets two new colours – Maroon and Blue. The Bullet 500 and Bullet 350 are priced at Rs 1,69,688 and Rs 1,32,788 respectively. The Royal Enfield Thunderbird gets a new Asphalt colour which is inspired by long highways. The new shade is available on both, the Thunderbird 350 and Thunderbird 500 variants.
