- Royal Enfield sold 91 units last month
- Production in the UK halted as well
- To launch the Meteor soon
Royal Enfield has managed to sell 91 motorcycles in India amidst the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown in the country.
The manufacturer's dealerships as well as its Tiruvottiyur, Vallam Vadagal, and Oragadam production facilities in Chennai have been temporarily shut down since 23 March. Royal Enfield has halted production at its plant in the United Kingdom as well. Nevertheless, the company is preparing to restart operations and commence production once the situation normalizes with necessary Government approvals.
On the other hand, Royal Enfield is likely to launch a new motorcycle soon. Called the Meteor, the cruiser-style motorcycle is expected to replace the Thunderbird X. It sports the same styling as the latter, although with minor tweaks. Moreover, the Meteor will also use a more refined and BS6-compliant version of the 346cc engine. As for pricing, the Royal Enfield Meteor is likely to cost around Rs 1.65 lakh to Rs 1.70 lakh, ex-showroom.
