Royal Enfield's 500cc Classic in Lewis Leathers trim is now in production, with the first customers taking delivery of this limited edition model.
Conceived by vintage style aficionado Nick Clements, (www.nickclements.co.uk), of the Royal College of Art in London, this specially commissioned model pays homage to Britain's oldest motorcycle clothing company, Lewis Leathers, which was established in London's West End in 1892.
Based around the current Bullet Classic 500 that is powered by Royal-Enfield's new fuel-injected single cylinder engine, Clements has given the popular machine a complete makeover, enhancing its traditional appearance with numerous vintage styling cues. Featuring a special paint scheme on the tank with matching graphics on the mudguards and side panels, the Lewis Leathers limited edition also has a bespoke two-tone solo leather seat in black and cream. Behind the seat are leather panniers, embossed with the Lewis Leathers logo in gold, individually mounted on a sub frame attached to the rear mudguard. An upswept sports silencer adds further style and delivers an authentic ‘sound track' to the experience.
Production is limited to just 50 machines, each of which is individually numbered on the tank. Priced at £5695 on the road the Lewis Leathers Bullet Classic may be ordered through franchised Royal Enfield dealers across the UK. To find out more call 01386 700907 or visit www.royal-enfield.com.
