Popular in America from the 1930's to the 1960's, cruisers eat up the miles on highways, and are preferred on long journeys. Since 2002, and then cemented in 2012; only one motorcycle in India is synonymous with the definitive highway cruising experience.  

It has been designed for highway cruising. The recessed, laid back stance has proven capability of keeping the rider engaged for hours on end without causing fatigue to take him in its grip. The capacious 20 litres fuel tank provides sustained power for negotiating 550-700 kilometres at a stretch. Leisure bikers will find each trip a rewarding one. The cool, radical looks will grab appreciative eyeballs for sure.

Optimal comfort is guaranteed through receded cruiser stance and sufficiently padded bucket seat.

Safety quotient is heightened with large front and rear disc brakes that keep you on course. The power of the headlight is amplified with projector headlamp integrated with LED light guide halo ring. The model features single ring parking and hazard light, the first to be seen on any Indian bike.

The capacious 20 litre fuel tank ensures unhindered riding. The innovatively designed and strategically positioned fuel cap allowing topping up the tank to the brim.

While negotiating gradients, the rear tires are kept in firm contact with the ground through square swingarm rear suspension. The pillion can be removed easily to make way for carrier and saddlebags. The model is available in tempting shades of stone, marine, asphalt, lightning and flicker. Buy this imperial model from us, the top notch Royal Enfield dealers Kerala.
