Royal Enfield posted a total of 44,830 units in the month of November 2021 as against 59,084 units during the same period in 2020
Royal Enfield garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 44,830 units in the month of November 2021 as against 59,084 units during the same period in 2020 with a YoY negative sales growth of 24.12 per cent. The homegrown manufacturer introduced the new generation Classic 350 a few months ago and it has been well received amongst customers.
However, the chip shortage is certainly reducing production across the industry. The Classic 350 garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 19,601 units as against 39,391 units during the corresponding period twelve months ago with a YoY volume de-growth of 50.2 per cent. The Bullet 350, on the other hand, posted a positive sales increase.
The entry-level motorcycle within the brand’s portfolio recorded a total of 8,733 units as against 6,513 units in November 2020 with a YoY volume surge of 34 per cent. RE is reportedly working on the next generation Bullet 350 while a host of new launches are planned for 2022 including the Hunter 350, Scram 411 based on Himalayan and the 650 cc cruiser.
