Royal Enfield Rocket Arrives

12th February 2018

We are delighted to announce that we have supplied our first Vinyl Rocket Jukebox to India for the Royal Enfield Garage Cafe in Goa. The Royal Enfield Garage Cafe has a motorcycle museum, a riding gear and apparel store, motorcycle sales and service area and a full-service restaurant. The cafe celebrates the history of the brand and the spirit of exploration and adventure.

“This is the first of what we hope will be many of our jukeboxes heading to India,” says Sound Leisure’s Business Development Manager Nigel French. “Royal Enfield started out in Redditch in the UK in 1901 before moving to India during the 1950's. Their motorcycles, like our jukeboxes are hand-built. The resurgence of the vinyl format for its warmer tone is significant. We at Sound Leisure combine this tone with retro good looks and enhance its enjoy-ability using the latest in technology.”

“Royal Enfield has chosen Sound Leisure’s Vinyl Rocket Jukebox for its performance and authenticity – in keeping with the 50's during which the brand first became known in India. The stunning Vinyl Rocket takes its name from 'Rocket 88' by Jackie Brenston and the Delta Cats. The 1951 song has been hailed as the first true rock 'n' roll record, so the Vinyl Rocket jukebox has the soundtrack and the looks to live up to it. All of Sound Leisure’s classic jukeboxes are manufactured entirely at our factory in Leeds,” French added.

The Vinyl Rocket fits in seamlessly with the decor and ethos of the Royal Enfield Garage Café. The ambience of the cafe is inspired by the Royal Enfield motorcycling way of life – laid-back, unpretentious and relaxed and the Sound Leisure Vinyl Rocket jukebox contributes to this.
