NEW DELHI: Cult bike-maker Royal Enfield will price its limited edition range of motorcycles, inspired by ‘despatch riders’ of World Wars, at Rs 2.17 lakh (on-road Delhi).
The motorcycle will be available in two colours in India Desert Storm Despatch and Squadron Blue Despatch and only 200 units of each colour variant will be manufactured for the domestic market, the company said in a statement.
Royal Enfield said it is opening online bookings for the limited edition bike from July 15.
