"The company is committed to bringing technology developments with best-in-class quality, and this association is an effort to make high-quality gear accessible to all via Royal Enfield's strong presence across markets," Royal Enfield Executive Director B Govindarajan said.
The collection includes armour-infused riding jackets, gloves and riding trousers that meet global safety norms of safety, performance and comfort.
All the riding jackets and riding trousers under this range are CE Certified with Class A protection under personal protective equipment regulations and come with Alpinestars Nucleon flex pro CE level 2 armour.
The collection will be available in India across Royal Enfield stores, Amazon and Royal Enfield's official website at a price point of Rs 5,200 and goes up to Rs 18,900, the company stated.
