Royal Enfield Announces California Launch

California residents can finally buy the new Royal Enfield C5. 

Faribault, Minn – Classic Motorworks, the official importer and distributor of Royal Enfield motorcycles in the United States, announced today that the full Royal Enfield model line are now available at authorized  dealers in California.

Demand for the vintage-inspired Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle line has been growing sharply in the United States and world-wide since the introduction of Royal Enfield's unit construction engine two years ago, which brought new levels of performance, user-friendliness, and reliability to the world's oldest motorcycle brand. Royal Enfield Motors has responded to world demand with significant investments in production to increase capacity and allow the brand to enter new markets like California, where the bike's retro aesthetic and outstanding fuel economy are expected to make the line particularly popular with riders and enthusiasts.

“It's very exciting to be bringing Royal Enfield to California, especially now that we have an ideal product line and a hand-picked network of outstanding dealers to make a strong entry into this important market,” says Kevin Mahoney, president of Royal Enfield USA.

According to the company's announcement, the full U.S. range of Royal Enfield motorcycles, including the popular Bullet C5 Classic, will be immediately available at seven debut dealerships in California: Doug Douglas Motorcycles in San Bernardino, Il Motorino in Soquel, Munroe Motors in San Francisco, NoHo Scooters in North Hollywood, Rocket Motorcycles in San Diego, San Celmente Scooters in San Clemente, and South Bay Triumph in Lomita. Royal Enfield USA is also looking to answer strong demand in California by establishing additional dealerships in the state over the coming year. Complete model and dealer information can be found on the company’s website at www.enfieldmotorcycles.com.

Royal Enfield USA is a division of Classic Motorworks, the exclusive licensed distributor of Royal Enfield motorcycles in the United States. Royal Enfield USA operates in direct affiliation with Royal Enfield Motors, founded in Redditch, England in 1901 and manufactured and headquartered in Chennai, India since 1955.

This is a powerful bike to me since at 56 years old I rode several of these in the sixties growing up in California. To see the fuel milage at 85 mpg, and that is awesome since back in the sixties we never though about the price of gas, this is a perfect all around bike, I wish I could get one here in maine some day soon.
