The Classic Battle Green comes to you with a paint scheme reminiscent of the War era, a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles proved their capabilitities and battle worthiness by impeccable service to soldiers. Donning a younger look with styling cues one would expect only from a genuine Royal Enfield: single cylinder air-cooled pushrod engine, 1950s style nacelle and toolboxes, traditional paint scheme and buffed engine components, this motorcycle is all set to bring you the pleasures of modern motorcycling while reflecting the aura of classic eternal styling.

Hi, I came to know that though the Battle Green is not currently available for civilians anywhere in India, on special request, RE is putting in the Green color on the Desert Storm for an additional price. Is it true

Enjoyable -- Retro look gets a lot of turning heads... I was used to bikes with about twice the displacement... so I am learning how to use the bike best in the city and with local hops... Look forward to taking longer trips in a month or so.
