Good luck with that. If it's any help, the can of paint that comes with the bike is called "Royal Red" and the manufacturers email is sales@com-paint.com in India. Maybe they can help. I think Hitchcocks call it GT Red ? They might know something also.
Can you get a sample to the local paint supplier so they can use their spectrophotometer?

I was looking at doing some powder coating and I’m wanting a match obviously

If I can’t match it close enough I’ll change plans

The motorcycle industry uses https://www.colorrite.com

Royal Enfield uses a separate standard unique to India. There is no color code at Color Rite for RE paint.
Pull a side panel. Take it to a paint shop that can scan for the code. That's about it.
