‘Royal Enfield’ and ‘Bullet,’ these names are not new for the armed forces. In fact, they have been derived from the company’s links with the Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield, London. Being one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield has supplied bikes for dispatch riders during the Second World War. However, their history with the Indian Army started in 1949, when the government ordered Royal Enfield Bullets for border patrol use. Since then, Royal Enfields has maintained a relation with the Indian Army and they got another identity in the country as military bikes.
