Royal Enfield is more than a motorcycle to many in India. It is a lifestyle, a cult following that has come a long way since the beginning. Royal Enfield has been in continuous production since its arrival in India in 1955. Most of us have grown up with an Enfield in our families. While most RE customers are happy with their stock motorcycles, there are some who yearn to make them stand out with aftermarket accessories or customisations. However, we advice motorcyclists to be careful that these accessories must not hinder the bike's performance or safety. Here's a list of easily available accessories below Rs 10000 to transform your RE into a dazzler: (Image: Classic Motorworks/for representational purpose only)
Halo angel eyes are quite popular with Royal Enfield users. Even if a customer is not keen on full customisation, the halo ring is a minimalistic add on that looks rather good. It is basically a ring of light in the headlamp cluster that is available at a price of about Rs 3500. Another addition can be fog lamps priced around Rs 500, that not only look good but also serve a purpose during foggy days. (Image: Amazon India)
Accessories for Royal Enfield motorcycles are very popular and easily available on online shopping portals. One of them that drastically changes the look of the motorcycle is a windshield, which also protects you from direct headwinds. Another little trinket to change the look is a chrome finish headlamp grill. A windshield will set you back about Rs 2200-3000 and the headlamp grill costs about Rs 500-1000, depending upon the quality. (Image: Amazon India)
Those not satisfied with the stock wheels that come with their Royal Enfield motorcycle can go for aftermarket custom alloy wheels. A pair of such wheels will cost you as low as Rs 9000. Another cheap and quirky accessory we came across were handlebar end LED turn signals that are easily available at about Rs 1000. (Image: above: Amazon, below: Ebay)
Who doesn't like watches! While you buy one for yourself, maybe you would buy your motorcycle one too. A basic handlebar watch is priced at about Rs 600. If you happen to be a tourer and ride far and long, having Google Maps within easy reach will help. A mobile phone stand for a motorcycle handlebar is available at about Rs 600 to 900.

Royal Enfield also offers saddle bags for their motorcycles. The starting price of these bags, which will come in handy for longer rides, is Rs 4500.
While adding accessories to your motorcycle may be fun, riding gear should be dealt with first and Royal Enfield stores offer several helmets and gloves. A regular open face RE helmet will cost you Rs 2200, while gloves are priced at Rs 3700.
Royal Enfield also has riding jackets. Pictured here is an Explorer Black V2 which is priced at Rs 8500. The buff pictured here is priced at Rs 1700. For more options on riding gear, head over to Royal Enfield India website.
