Royal Enfield Military reporting for duty

Just a few weeks late for the anniversary of D-Day, the new Royal Enfield G-5 Military motorcycle is invading the U.S. market. Outfitted with optional dealer installed crash bars and saddlebags, it looks victorious.

Pictures here show the same Military motorcycle outfitted with black single seat and bags, with tan versions, and with and without crash bars. Any way you do it, it looks ready to march. The new Military has Royal Enfield's new unit constructed engine, fuel injection, electric start and a front disk brake.

But it also has the traditional kick start lever. Plastic parts are few and, painted olive drab, they don't look plastic anymore anyway. Take a look at the slide show of pictures below, shot at Classic Motorworks in Faribault, Minn.

Suggested retail price is $6,095. More details here.

    I can't tell from the photo if the bike has the more fully valanced fenders/mudguards of the previous military model, the sanme as those found on the 350.

  2. Al, I added a close-up of the front fender. I believe it is the standard G-5 fender, which is more substantial than the svelte 500 fender has been.
