  • Download PNG Royal Enfield Logo PNG The most recent step in the evolution of the Royal Enfield logo took place in 2013-2014 when the brand identity went through a complete overhaul including the wordmark, the crest, and the seal.
  • Meaning and history The India-based motorcycle manufacturing brand Royal Enfield has British roots.
  • Back in 1851, George Townsend founded a business making sewing needles in Redditch, Worcestershire, England.
  • The business went a long way before it started manufacturing motorcycles and motorcars (in 1901 and 1902 respectively).
  • The motor production became an independent subsidiary and was incorporated in 1906.
  • As it reported a substantial loss, the business was sold to Birmingham Small Arms Company.
  • Albert Eadie and BSA produced a variety of military riffles, cycle components, and motorcars.
  • Later, the business was purchased by Birmingham’s Alldays & Onions Pneumatic Engineering.
  • In 1955, Enfield Cycle Company created a division in India in collaboration with Madras Motors.
  • Here, the 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle was manufactured.
  • While the main business ceased to exist in 1978, the Indian factory is still quite commercially successful.
  • The crest symbol Similar to the old crest, the updated version features a canon.
  • The updated version also includes the wordmark and the lettering “Since 1901.” On the whole, the new crest looks a bit cartoonish in comparison with its predecessor.
  • On the downside, it lacks the genuinely vintage style of the previous version.
  • While a simple and minimalistic design is basically not a bad thing, the approach doesn’t seem beneficial here.
  • For years, a pair of wings has been among most often used symbols meaning “speed.” Many car or motorcycle logos feature wings.
  • Here, the wing theme lacks a unique touch that could have made the Royal Enfield logo stand out among other “winged” emblems.
  • The difference in height between the initials and the lowercase letters is smaller in the second logo.
  • While the serifs have grown less prominent, the type is still very distinctive due to the pairs of letters merging together: the “R” and “O,” the “E” and “N,” the “L” and “D.” Font The type used on both the crest and the seal appears to be Emigre’s Brothers Bold.
  • The colors “rhyme” with the motorcycles on which the Royal Enfield logo is placed: the grey fits the silvery details, the yellow fits the gold details, while the red “rhymes,” for instance with the color used for the arrow on some of the devices.
