Royal Enfield Crusader

Not on Display

The Royal Enfield Crusader was launched in 1956. It was the first machine by the Redditch based company to have the engine and gearbox built in unit. The magazine Motor Cycling road tested the 250cc bike in 1958, reporting that it could record 90mpg on general runs and 100mpg within easy reach. Although it was not the most exciting machine on the market, the model proved to be a reliable day-to-day workhorse.

This particular example was donated to the Museum in 1993. It had already been sectioned and had served as an educational aid at the Police Force Driving School of Durham Constabulary.
