Royal Enfield motorcycles may be slightly harder to come by in the UK, at least in the near future.

That is because the Indian manufacturer's UK distributor Watsonian Squire has announced that it is ceasing distribution of the popular motorcycles.

Enfield makes a range of notable models including the Bullet, Electra, Classic and Thunderbird series. Cotswold-based Watsonian Squire has been responsible for importing the motorbikes to the UK since 1999.

But after a 14-year partnership, the firm has said that it will no longer be working with Royal Enfield.

The official reason? Because it wishes to "concentrate on other activities" including the production of motorcycle sidecars and luggage trailers.

Whether or not there's more to the story remains to be seen, however Royal Enfield is yet to comment on whether or not a new distribution deal is in the works.

With the UK representing such an important market for the company, it seems likely that this will be a major priority.
