January 5th Original Article: Royal Enfield is the only manufacturer of recent times which appears shielded. Doesn’t matter which international or national manufacturer comes in or launches what, Royal Enfield has seen some terrific times of late. Not only have they built up on their strong domestic demand, but they are now spreading wings in international markets. While their new model Himalayan is expected to be launched at the Auto Expo next month, the company has attempted to infuse a fresh lease of life in its existing models.
Royal Enfield seems to be getting ready to introduce new colour options in the Electra 350, Bullet 500, Classic 350 and Classic 500. The changes however will remain only cosmetic and not mechanical. The folks at Team BHP have leaked the images of the upcoming colours.
Let us list out what is changing…
- 2016 Electra 350:
The brand is introducing new shade called Meridian Blue. It also gets a lighter shade of red called Marsala Red. Electra also gets new short cover tubes over the front forks. The seat cover is also expected to get a different layer of rexine.

The breadwinner for the Chennai based brand, the Bullet 500 has toiled through the ages and continues to invite both young and old. The new colour Athena Grey (or Marsh Grey) will add to the only two other paint schemes available. Even this one gains a new rexine cover for the seat.
- 2016 Classic 350:
