About Royal Enfield Ltd India

Although Enfield sold its first bike in India in 1949, it was not before 1955 that India's own Royal Enfield manufacturing establishment came into existence. In 1955, Redditch Company and Madras Motors became partners and formed Enfield India, which is currently based in Chennai. The present day Royal Enfield company is a subsidiary of the Indian automobile stalwart Eicher Motors Limited. Dr. Venki Padmanabhan is the CEO of Royal Enfiled India. Royal Enfield has been the most trusted high capacity bike and the most favourite of the Indian government for the past six decades. The Government of India had a requirement of a powerful, high capacity, strong and reliable vehicle for the Indian Army and Indian Police for patrolling purposes. Royal Enfield was the name the Indian government counted on. In 1965, 800 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet model units were ordered by the Government of India. The original Enfield Manufacturing Company Limited went defunct in 1971; however, Enfield India just kept on growing in stature and repute.
