About Classic Squadron Blue

The Royal Enfield Squadron Blue is a special edition version of the Classic 500. Available in a unique matte blue paint scheme, this motorcycle pays a tribute to the Indian Air Force.

The Indian Air Force also started using Royal Enfield in the 1950s and it has been most popularly used by the Air Force Police. The inspiration for the new colour has come from the Indian Air Force and is a tribute by Royal Enfield to its long-standing history with these soldiers of the skies. The matte blue paint scheme and the chromed components complement the Squadron Blue’s old-school looks, increasing the motorcycle’s retro appeal.

Mechanically, the Royal Enfield Squadron Blue is identical to its host motorcycle. It is powered by a 500cc single-cylinder engine, which delivers 27bhp and 41Nm of torque through a five-speed transmission. This air-cooled engine comes with a Keihin electronic fuel injection system to offer better fuelling. The Squadron Blue rides on 19-inch front and 18-inch rear spoke wheels. Suspension setup consists of 35mm forks in the front and conventional gas-charged springs at the rear. It comes with a disc brake at both ends now, and ABS is a Rs 15,000 option.

The Royal Enfield Squadron Blue is offered as a single-seater and in a single paint scheme. Being a niche motorcycle, the Squadron Blue doesn’t have any competition in the Indian market.

Royal Enfield Classic Squadron Blue Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Features a torquey motor
    • Ergonomics are comfortable for long rides
    • Wide service reach 
  • Could be Better

    • Falls short of modern features
    • Brakes lack bite and feel
    • Heavy weight demands more input while maneuvers

BikeWale's Take

For the retro-styled motorcycle lovers, the Royal Enfield Classic models are one of the go-to options. The Squadron Blue colour scheme, in particular, holds a patriotic value as it is a tribute to the Indian Air Force. Besides that, the torquey motor and comfortable ergononmics of the Classic 500 make it a great companion for long rides.
