The most known Royal Enfield of WW2 was the WD/RE 125cc Flying Flea designed to be dropped with the airborne parachute troops to carry messages and signals where radio was not in place.
Following the war a civilian version of the Flying Flea was built from 1950. The RE125 had a foot-operated gear change lever and telescopic front forks with internal spring dampeners. In 1951, the RE2 was introduced with a redesigned frame and engine. It was superseded in 1953 by the Royal Enfield Ensign.
