Everything from custom saddles, headlight cowls, and even aftermarket exhaust systems can be purchased in-house, and fitted onto your brand spanking new classic-style machine.

Royal Enfield has recently announced that it will now be including its collection of riding jackets in the Make it Yours campaign. This allows riders to design and purchase a completely unique riding jacket from Royal Enfield. The jackets can be designed via Royal Enfield’s online configurator tool, and offer a variety of color options, Knox and D3O armor options, various graphic elements, and even additional winter and rain liners.

Consumers are often forced to buy riding jackets from the shelves to act as utility accessories rather than to meet their needs or complement their style.
