Based on the Classic 500, all bikes come with ABS braking and re-mapped fuel injection for low emissions and , for 2017, the Classic comes with an optional pillion sear pad, in case a passenger needs to hitch a ride.
The unit construction engine meets the latest Euro 4 regulations, but retains the original bore & stroke, so the exhaust note is a characteristic Bullet ‘thump’ and modern tyres on 18” wheels enhance road-holding.
Three colour options are available in the Redditch range;
Wedgewood blue was a distinctive soft tone available as an optional colour scheme for the Crusader, Bullet and Big Twins in 1958.
Surf green was first used on 2-stroke 150cc Ensign II and III models then later on the all-new 250cc Crusader when launched in 1957.
Chinese red was a favourite for sports models and was mostly used on machines made for the USA with ‘Indian’ badges. It also featured on the famed 1959 – 1961 Royal Enfield Fury.
Other changes from the standard Classic 500 include white beading on the rider and pillion seats and a special Redditch Edition logo on the rear mudguard. This is based on the iconic Royal Enfield monogram, which first appeared in 1939 on the tank of the prototype 125cc 2-stroke motorcycle, called ‘Royal Baby’. The outbreak of WWII saw the model transform into the now legendary ‘Flying Flea’ used by airborne troops.
