THE man how steered Royal Enfield in recent years has sadly passed away this week after suffering what was reported to be cardiac arrest.

Rudratej Singh helped to steer the company while it produced some of its biggest and most popular models including the single-cylinder Continental GT and the firm’s latest 650 twin-cylinder machines.

Singh was at the helm of Royal Enfield for a period of four years, a time that saw him take the company from relative bit-player in the motorcycle world to a globally acclaimed motorcycle maker, exporting bikes across the world.

After his time at Royal Enfield, Singh went on to take over at BMW Group India where he became president and chief executive officer, a position he held for just under a year.
