Press Release:
Celebrating it’s 120th anniversary, Royal Enfield, the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, today unveiled the concept of an exclusive range of limited-edition helmets consisting of 12 designs- each inspired from a poster/advertorial from one of the twelve decades of the brand’s legacy. Each helmet is hand painted and only 120 units for each design have been made. These helmets retell the stories of the last 120 years and customers now have an opportunity to own a chapter from Royal Enfield’s history.

From humble beginnings at the Redditch factory in 1901, Royal Enfield has been a symbol of resilience, purposeful longevity, and authenticity through its 120-year journey and continues to build timeless classic motorcycles, and creating pure motorcycling experiences. Craft, dedication, relentless passion and everything that has defined Royal Enfield over the past 120 years, has now been expressed in 12 designs of handcrafted, hand-painted helmets. Inline with the brand's commitment to staying truly authentic and classic, Royal Enfield has ensured that each design visually depicts their heritage and legacy from the last 12 decades in the most authentic manner of traditional hand painting.

Speaking about the launch, Mr. Puneet Sood, National Business Head - North and West India & Global Head - Apparel Business - Royal Enfield, said, “Continuing on its journey of encouraging and kickstarting the active, lifelong pursuit of exploration, Royal Enfield is raising a toast to 120 years of being fiercely unique, riding with undeterred grit and resilience and the endless stories that riders have created on our motorcycles. These are the years that have made us who and what we are today. We understand that a helmet is the first and truly most important riding accessory that a rider buys, is very personal and is worn proudly. There could not have been a better canvas than a helmet for us to share stories from the last 120 years. These limited edition helmets not only cater to the safety, protection, comfort and style needs of riders but should also inspire the younger generation riders and non-riders to continue creating stories on their Royal Enfield motorcycles for many more years to come.”

Every week for the next six weeks, Royal Enfield will drop two helmet designs, one each on Monday and Wednesday, with sale of these going live on Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon respectively. Each helmet design will carry a unique number starting 001/120 till 120/120. The helmet packaging will also consist of a postcard (actual poster/advertorial artwork) with the story inspiration for that design.

Keeping in mind that a helmet is the most important safety accessory for any rider, Royal Enfield has paid extra attention to ensure this limited range offers the best quality and comfort while sporting designs that are absolute head-turners. Like Royal Enfield’s motorcycles, these limited edition helmets are also a perfect amalgamation of classic designs, history and modern day technology- carrying triple certification, ISI, DOT, ECE, premium internals, leather trims and a sun visor offering optimum safety, protection and comfort to the riders. The open face helmets will be available for INR 6,950 and full face helmets will be available at INR 8,450. Users can register to purchase these helmets on the brand's official website.

The Original Royal Enfield

As the name suggests, ‘The Original Royal Enfield’ inspired by the 1900s has drawn inspiration from the very first motorcycle unveiled by Royal Enfield at London’s Stanley Cycle Show in November 1901, marking its foray into the world of two-wheelers. Powered by a 1 ½ hp single cylinder engine mounted ahead of the handlebars and driven at the rear by a crossed-over rawhide belt, it was the seed that grew into a dynasty. Just like the hemet, this motorcycle followed a very simplistic design. The unique helmet adorns the first ever Royal Enfield logo that was used on the motorcycles and marks the advent of this illustrious era.

With ISI, DOT and ECE certification, ‘The Original Royal Enfield’ is an open face helmet that endorses the highest safety standards. Weighing about 1280 grams approximately, it comes with a face covering bubble visor, Premium Leather with Polygiene treated fabric internals and hand stitched leather trims at shell beading.

The Racing V Twins

The second helmet is inspired by the 1910’s. In an era where reliability was as critical as outright speed, racing legends like Bert Colver claimed spectacular victories, V-twin engines formed the backbone of the Royal Enfield range and the buying public loved their reliability, performance and ease of maintenance. The second helmet from the limited edition helmet range is ‘The Racing V Twins’, drawing inspiration from the Royal Enfield V Twin motorcycles, which were indeed very capable machines and were instrumental in many race wins across the world in the famous TT Series.

The full face Racing V Twins helmet weighs about 1600 grams approximately and endorses ISI, DOT, ECE certification, Neck curtain and D ring for higher safety.

Press Release:
Celebrating it’s 120th Anniversary, Royal Enfield, unveiled two new limited helmets ‘The Picnic Special’ and ‘Birth of the Bullet’, post the launch of ‘The Original Royal Enfield’ and ‘The V Twin’ which were successfully sold out the same day of the sale. The new helmets corresponding to decades 1920’s and 1930’s will be on sale on 30th and 31st October respectively. The limited edition range consists of hand painted helmets designed by artists commemorating the twelve decades of Royal Enfield’s rich history. The 12 Helmet designs, 1 for each decade are inspired by posters/advertorials from the decade starting 1901 till 2021 and there are only 120 units of each helmet design available.

The Picnic Special

The inspiration behind the helmet is the 1920s, which was a decade of consolidation followed by expansion for Royal Enfield and recovering from the Great War with a minimalist two-model programme. The range evolved through the decade to include 350 and 500cc side-valve and overhead valve singles with advancements such as mechanical lubrication, electric lighting and saddle tanks. The 8hp 976cc V-twin Model 180 remained the mainstay throughout, providing owners with a brawny, unflappable motorcycle for work as well as, with an Enfield sidecar attached, outings with family and fellow enthusiasts. This helmet takes inspiration from the same - a group of Royal Enfield riders out on a summer afternoon riding together in the countryside.

With ISI, DOT and ECE certification, ‘The Picnic Special’ is a full face helmet that endorses the highest safety standards, it also comes with a breath deflector, neck curtain and D ring for higher safety. In addition to this, It comes with improved ventilation and rear exhaust hot air remover for a comfortable riding experience. In addition to this, the helmet has Polygiene” Anti-microbial treated internals, and has sustainable technology, which requires less washing and conserves water. It comes with a Sun Visor with operation switch at the exterior and Main visor with Anti-fog film . The helmet is priced at INR 8450 and will go on sale on 30th October at 12pm exclusively at store.royalenfield.com until/120helmets the stock lasts.

Birth of the Bullet

This helmet is a fitting homage to the virtual launch of the first Bullet in The Motorcycle magazine’s ‘armchair’ show in 1932. The Thirties was a golden era for Royal Enfield motorcycle development, the undoubted high point being the creation of the world-famous Bullet. Launched in 1932, Bullets were renowned for their sporty 250, 350 and 500cc sloper engines and were well ahead of the pack in transitioning from hand-change to foot-change gearboxes and the adoption of centrestands. The top-of-the-range 500 Bullet, with its 4-valve cylinder head, was capable of 100mph when tuned for racing yet could be ridden with ease as a go-to-work mount. For almost 90 years this outstanding motorcycle has been the first and last word in traditional motorcycle design and remains the longest running production model by any manufacturer. The design on this helmet is an interpretation that captures the unique origin story of Royal Enfield’s most well recognised variant.

This open-faced helmet endorses ISI, DOT, ECE certification for highest safety standards. It comes with a face covering bubble visor, Premium Leather with Polygiene treated fabric internals and hand-stitched leather trims at shell beading. The outer shell of this helmet is made out of the light weight fiberglass material and has a UV coating on bubble visors. This collector’s item is priced at INR 6950 and will go on sale on 31st October exclusively at store.royalenfield.com/120helmets until the stock lasts.
