Welcome to the #YourKindaBrand – a series of posts dedicated to helping you find brands and labels that are similar to the ones you already love and adore. With titbits of history, mystery, and similarities, we run you through a few facets of two relatable brands, thereby introducing you to what might be your new favourite shopping portal. Sound good? Let’s get started! Here’s the 2nd post of the #YourKindaBrand series.
There’s something wonderful about hitting the road on a motorbike. The sound of the engine roaring is like music to the ears. The thrill of the speed feels wonderful. The road feels inviting. And you feel in command. Which is why anyone who owns a motorbike will have a love story to tell you.
Speaking of the best motorbike brands, it has a favourite synonym – Harley-Davidson. The first motorbike was created as early as 1903 when two enigmatic young men, William S. Harley & Arthur Davidson designed an engine that could fit into a bicycle. Today, a century later, Harley Davidson continues to remain a popular pop-culture brand that serves passionate bikers from around the world. And if you are a patron of Harley Davidson, the Royal Enfield has a story that’s just as interesting!
The first Royal Enfield was built in 1901 in Worcestershire, England. The Enfield Cycle Company Ltd. supplied motorcycles to the British Government during World Wars I and II. Royal Enfield’s love affair with India began when the company partnered with Madras Motors in 1955 to assemble the Bullet – history’s longest surviving, original motorbike design. But above all, the Royal Enfield is known and acknowledged by the familiar sound of the engine chugging, a USP that has stood the test of time. Currently, the brand has about 440 showrooms in over 200 cities in India.
Both the iconic brands don’t just limit their offerings to motorbikes. While Harley-Davidson fans share their love for riding at HOG (Harley Owners Group®), Royal Enfield owners come together through various RE biking communities across the country such as India Bull Riders, Highway Players, Royal Mavericks, etc. While the Enfield Suede boots steal the show, Harley Davidson leather jackets can rock your look. As Enfield’s printed buffs appeal to you, so will Harley’s range of sweatshirts and cardigans. And while fans adore Enfield’s travel bags, Harley-Davidson boasts more categories, apart from the traditional riding gear. These include souvenirs & collectibles like shot glasses, patches, coffee mugs, and more. You can also find books that detail the glorious history of Harley-Davidson, and a few bookmarks to go with it.
