Royal Enfield has joined hands with Ohlins USA for the Royal Enfield Build Train Race (BTR) road racing and flat track programs for 2021. The well-known suspension manufacturer will offer top-of-the-line components to BTR participants for their Royal Enfield builds. Royal Enfield launched the Build Train Race program in 2019, challenging professional road racer Melissa Paris and three other women to build flat track motorcycles and compete in select exhibitions during the American Flat Track races last year. Paris used Ohlins components on her Royal Enfield build and earned two second-place finishes and a win in the BTR exhibition races.

Ohlins USA has now partnered with Royal Enfield USA to supply suspension for the bikes in the Build, Train, Race (BTR) program

"Ohlins USA is proud to be the official suspension of the BTR program," said Mike Himmelsbach, motorsport market manager, Ohlins USA. "We're excited to offer our latest technology for these women to further enhance their building and racing experience. This performance suspension upgrade delivers new levels of stability, precision and safety both on the racetrack and on the street."

"When I started my build for the BTR flat track program, choosing Ohlins was a no-brainer," said Ohlins USA-backed rider and BTR mentor Melissa Paris. "I've used Ohlins components for my entire road racing career, and it's what I felt comfortable using. I always knew that Ohlins made the best product for road racing, so I wasn't surprised when it worked perfectly on the flat track as well. Now that I'm mentoring the road race version of BTR, I'm excited to have the opportunity to equip the ladies on the best equipment possible."

For the Royal Enfield Build Train Race (BTR) program, seven women racers in North America will transform Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 into racing machines with a small budget. Royal Enfield launched the BTR program in 2019, challenging four women to build flat track motorcycles and compete in select exhibitions during American Flat Track events. After a strong response to the program, the second phase of BTR will showcase the road racing capabilities of the Continental GT 650 and the abilities of seven female motorcyclists to build, train and race the motorcycles they create.
