Motorcycle Teasing and Biker History

Motorcycle videos can be more than well-shot bikes, color-tinted images and well-chosen actors. This video from Royal Enfield rides into the history of the iconic brand.

Like many things in the motorcycle world, the video teases what riders should know and why they should be interested in a small badge featured on a celebratory model. The Classic 350 sports a heritage-laden monogram to go with its Redditch colorways.

The iconic Royal Enfield monogram 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' paratroopers motorcycle, which still proudly wore its RE tank badge. Subsequently, the Redditch mark was flanked by a wing design, and was proudly adopted by the Royal Enfield Classic in 2008. Carrying the legacy forward, the original Redditch RE insignia has now been revived expressly for use on Royal Enfield Classic 350s with Redditch colorways.

Best of all, the video is only 1 minute.
