New Delhi, February 24, 2022: Royal Enfield, the oldest motorcycle brand in continuous

initiative. The winners have been hand-picked by the renowned jury members- Leading fashion

This year’s top 3 winners are Harsh Namdeo (Bina, Madhya Pradesh), Ekant Singh (Noida) and

Royal Enfield. Also, the next 3 winners bagged an opportunity to intern with Royal Enfield design

two, with Royal Enfield announcing 2 winners.
Speaking about the campaign, Mr. Puneet Sood, National Business Head – North and West India,
Nepal, Bhutan & Global Head – Apparel Business said, “As a brand, Royal Enfield has always stood
for self-expression. Our motorcycles have been the perfect canvas for customisation. The genesis of
#ArtOfMotorcycling was to celebrate the ethos of exploration and motorcycling through the lens of
art. Like the first season we have received an awe-inspiring response to this season as well, with
more than 15k registrations. We are very excited to note that 8 out of every 10 participants were
non-Royal Enfield owners and majority participation came from small towns. The platform through
the medium of art and motorcycling has indeed resulted in bringing together diverse communities,
cutting across barriers like age, profession and geography.”
Royal Enfield conceptualised this campaign to provide creators a platform to express their love for
motorcycling through creative illustrations. This year’s winners will also get access to exciting
learning and collaboration opportunities at Royal Enfield in addition to having their designs featured
on Royal Enfield merchandise. Royal Enfield has always engaged with artists over the years and
