Royal Enfield commemorates death of Classic 500 with Tribute Black edition

IT’S the end of an era, as the Royal Enfield Classic 500 is set to cease to exist. The last bikes are currently hitting dealership floors, with confirmation no more examples will be shipped to Australia or New Zealand.

To commemorate the Royal Enfield Classic 500, A Tribute Black edition will be released in limited numbers, with pre-ordering to commence today for the special model. Just 240 unites will be available.

Each of the Classic 500 Tribute Black motorcycles will be handcrafted at the iconic Oragadam factory in Chennai. The Tribute Black will feature pin stripes, hand painted by the Kumar brothers, celebrating this long standing Royal Enfield build tradition.

The Classic Tribute Black comes with premium leather and rider pillion seats to add to the authenticity and exclusivity of this end of model special build. Each bike will carry a serial number plaque indicating its position in this very special production run.

The hallmark UCE 500cc engine has echoed Royal Enfield’s tradition of the long stroke character, producing an unmistakable thump that has reverberated through the hearts of its riders for over a decade.

The Tribute Black will see the UCE supplied in an all black livery, complementing the Classic 500’s timeless visual appeal.

It will be priced at $9,590 ride away in Australia, but collectors looking to keep it in pristine condition as a keep sake, can purchase it without ride away fees. It will be provided with a 2-year warranty, and two years roadside assistance.

Royal Enfield is one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s fastest-growing motorcycle brands  with a strong dealer network, enjoying promising growth with motorcycles that appeal to a broad range.

2021 will see further development in the Royal Enfield product line-up as the brand continues to push its market share in the mid capacity segment. We’re sure Royal Enfield will be working on an enhanced replacement in the coming months.
