Handcrafting a Legacy

Each of the Classic 500 Tribute Black motorcycles are handcrafted at the iconic Oragadam factory in Chennai. The Tribute Black is hand painted with the Royal Enfield pinstripes by the Kumar brothers, celebrating this long standing Royal Enfield build tradition.

In Recognition of a Legend.

Celebrating over a decade since the first UCE 500cc (unit construction engine) rolled out christening the birth of the Royal Enfield Classic in 2008, this very special Tribute Black edition is strictly limited and each of these motorcycles will carry a serial numbered plaque ensuring every Tribute Black remains unique to it’s owner.


The Classic 500 Tribue Black comes with premium leather rider & pillion seats to add to the aesthetic exclusivity of this end of build special.

The Powerful Single

The hallmark UCE 500cc has echoed Royal Enfield’s tradition of the long stroke character, producing an unmistakable thump that has reverberated through the hearts of it’s riders for over a decade. In this avatar, the UCE comes in an all-black livery, complimenting the Classic 500’s timeless aesthesis.

Unquestioned dependability

Whether riding through city streets and lanes or riding through plains, with its legacy and time-tested performance, this is a machine you can count on.
