The homegrown retro motorcycle maker was the sixth-highest seller last month.
It beat Yamaha, Piaggio, Kawasaki, Triumph and others. The Classic 350 continued to be the best-seller for Royal Enfield while speculations surrounding the arrival of the second generation model loom large. It garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 17,377 units last month as against 22,699 units during the same period last year.
