It looks like Royal Enfield's model line-up could get updated with new colour options. It is likely that these colours will be offered as updates for the 2016 model year.

For the 350cc range, the Electra 350 (currently offered in 'Red', 'Black' and 'Silver') is expected to get two new colours - 'Meridian Blue' and 'Marsala Red' (lighter shade of red than the current model). In both cases, the fuel tank, side boxes / panels and headlamp casing will feature the new paint job, with the rest of the components featuring a chrome finish like the current model. The seat is also expected to get a new Rexine cover.

The Classic 350 (currently offered in 'Lagoon Blue', 'Ash', 'Black', 'Silver' and 'Maroon') will also get two new colours - 'Chestnut Red' and 'Marshal Green'. Here, the mudguards, fuel tank and side boxes / panels feature the new paint shades, with the headlamp casing and front suspension cover tube finished in black. The Chestnut Red shade also gets a tan seat cover.

Royal Enfield's Classic 500, Classic Chrome 500 and Bullet 500 also get updates. The Classic Chrome (currently offered in 'Classic Black' and 'Royal Maroon') is expected to get two new shades - 'Athena Grey' and 'Forest Green'. Here, the fuel tank, headlamp casing, front suspension cover tube, side boxes / panels are finished in the new paint shades, with new stickers featured on the mudguards.

The Classic 500 (currently offered in 'Classic Black', 'Classic Tan' and 'Classic Silver') is expected to get a new 'Squadron Blue' shade, with the paint job covering the fuel tank, headlamp casing, side boxes / panels, front suspension cover tube, mudguards, the frame, swing-arm and engine mounting brackets. The graphics on the body will be shared with the Classic Desert Storm 500.
 
Finally, the Bullet 500 (currently offered in 'Forest Green' and 'Black'), is expected to be offered in 'Athena Grey' with the paint shade covering the fuel tank, headlamp casing, side boxes / panels, front suspension cover tube and mudguards. The seat is also expected to get a new Rexine cover.
 
It remains to be seen when these bikes will be offered in these updated colours and it will also be interesting to see if all of them are offered in India or if some will be exclusive to export markets.
