Royal Enfield has introduced its new gear collection inspired by the Despatch Riders of the World Wars. In addition to apparel and accessories, the collection also includes a limited edition range of Despatch motorcycles for the domestic and international markets.

A palette of browns, greens, olive, tan and blues is paired with classic regimental detailing - epaulettes, plackets and gorgets. Fabrics such as leather, twill and canvas have been chosen for their utility.

Available in two colour variants — Desert Storm Despatch and Squadron Blue Despatch, and an additional third, Battle Green Despatch for international markets — these motorcycles come with an exclusive signature camouflage pattern and a distinctive embossed hallmark detailing the particulars of the company.

Additionally, each Royal Enfield Despatch comes with genuine Italian leather seats accompanied by a classic leather buckle strap to hold the air filter box.

Inspired by the stealthy, non-reflective paint on the engines of the original Despatch Rider motorcycles, the bike gets a matte black paint on the engine, exhaust and silencer.

Royal Enfield will be producing only 200 motorcycles in each colour. Customers can book their motorcycles starting July 15th.
