Royal Enfield has the widest portfolio of 350 cc motorcycles compared to any other two-wheeler manufacturer. Thus, taking advantage, it has led the segment for many years with a range of models. The scenario did not change in the month of April 2021 despite efforts from companies like Honda and Jawa as they have positioned direct rivals.
The highly popular Royal Enfield Classic 350 sat at the top of the sales charts last month as 23,298 units were sold against 31,696 units during the same period in the previous month with 26.5 per cent negative growth. The Bullet 350, on the other hand, moved up a position compared to March 2021 and finished in the second position.
It posted 9,908 unit sales in April 2021 as against 9,693 units in the previous month with 2.22 per cent Month-on-Month volume growth. The Classic 350 will have its new generation introduced sometime later this year and is based on a new double-cradle frame along with a revised 349 cc single-cylinder engine with an OHC setup.
