Rudratej Singh, the President of Royal Enfield said, "The Classic 500 Squadron Blue is a tribute to Royal Enfield's war time presence and association with the armed forces."
"We wanted a variant with a genuine armed forces heritage for our customers and for this, Royal Enfield turned to the Indian Air Force for inspiration. We had to be very particular about the colour to create an authenticity and also provide the motorcycle its post war appeal."
