Royal Enfield to Unleash Handmade Classic 500 Scale Model in 1:3 Scale

Royal Enfield is an Indian bike manufacturer, which I also call it Harley Davidson of India, know for their bikes like Classic, Thunderbird, GT 650. Its riders love it and we collectors love it for its fine details. Maisto’s 1:12 Classic 500 did its good run filling so many budget collectors display. Now Royal Enfield is stepping in to bring in premium feel to the scale model field with its handmade 1:3 scale Classic 500.

These Royal Enfield Classic 500 are focused at serious collector as it packs in very fine details, handmade to perfection in RE’s studio. Royal Enfield shared a promotion video which showed some crazy detailing like working clutch leavers, brakes, working accelerators, scaled miniature key and other normal scale model features like steering and suspension.

This being handmade, the crafters in RE had put few other trivial details that makes sense to collector who are willing to pay big bugs for those attention to details. Yes, this Royal Enfield is not part-time scale model collectors but for serious hardcore collector, priced at ₹67,990/- this cost almost half the price of the original 1:1 road going Classic 500.

This Model is by no means a expensive piece in your display but in my opinion these are great value for money.
