Video: Royal Enfield Chennai tribute

Royal Enfield has released the following video as a tribute to the city of Chennai, its current base of operations. The video is also dedicated “to the wonderful people who build, sell, ride and maintain these beloved machines”. The once-British marque is currently building a second factory to cope with an annual Indian-market demand of 50,000 units per year.

Excellent!

Very tastefully photographed. The people of Chennai are obviously very proud of their product and rightfully so. The tanks are a work of art. Who knows, in thirty years time, they might be making Speed Triples! Glad they didn't show that bloody awful Fury though!

Tha'ts because the Fury wasn't done in Chennai, it was solely the work of the UK importers, nothing to do with the factory.

Exquisite

A simply delightful video celebrating a simple, beautiful and pure motorcycle.

I want one, but alas the nearest dealer is 130+ miles away.

I didn't say it was built in Chennai. I was just glad they didn't associate it with these proud, properly built Royal Enfields. I'm willing to bet the Indian workers were in shock when they saw what we had done to their bikes, I know I was!

Trip?

What was the text "Trip" referring to at the end? And yes I know I'm a bit thick
