The 1904 Royal 16-H.P. Tourist was a touring car model. Equipped with a tonneau, it could seat five passengers and sold for US$ 2300. The vertically mounted water-cooled straight-twin, situated at the front of the car, produced 16 hp (11.9 kW). A three-speed sliding transmission was fitted. The pressed steel-framed car weighed 1700 lb (771 kg). A modern cellular radiator was used, and the car rivaled the offerings of cross-town rival, Peerless.
In November 1907, the Royal Motor Company went into receivership. On December 2, 1908, a court judge authorized the sale of the company's assets to a new corporation named the Royal Tourist Car Company headed by Bostonian, George J. Dunham.
