AFTER 52 years the iconic motorbike brand Royal Enfield has returned to Redditch

A special six-week exhibition will appear in the shop opposite Clintons in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre thanks to the local Royal Enfield Owners’ Club and other community and history groups.

The exhibition is open every Saturday from 10.30am until 4pm and will boast a different theme each week.

It will also be open in the week from 10am until 2pm.

On display will be an exciting range of 16 motorcycles ranging from Classic, Bullet, Interceptor INT 650, Continental GT 650 and Himalayan and the remarkable concept presentation - “Concept KX”, a V-Twin motorcycle.

Also, the original Royal Enfield Shop, on Church Green, is boasting a special display.

Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch County, is encouraging residents to make sure to pay a visit and learn about Redditch’s history.

She said: “I know everyone in Redditch is proud of their town’s history and heritage, so make sure to celebrate it by visiting Royal Enfield’s exhibition in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

“It’s fantastic to have Royal Enfield back in Redditch and I hope this is the beginning of greater collaboration with Royal Enfield in the future, both long-term and short-term.”

Council leader Matt Dormer called it a "true celebration of Royal Enfield and Redditch, past present and future" and said he wanted as many people as possible to get involved.
