- RE sold over 17,000 units of Hunter 350 in September
- 3,980 units of Honda CB350 sold
- Classic 350 tops list with 25,571 units sold
Royal Enfield launched the Hunter 350 in India in August as their entry-level and most affordable model. While it is yet to surpass the sales of the Classic 350 which sold 25,571 units in September, the sales of the Hunter 350 are commendable.
Last month, Royal Enfield sold 17,118 units of the Hunter 350, a number only slightly lesser than in August wherein 18,197 units of the motorcycle were sold. Interestingly, that number was merely a stone's throw away from the Classic 350’s August sale number of 18,993 units. Now, as compared to its closest rival- the Honda CB350, the Hunter 350 is far ahead in terms of sales. Honda managed to sell just 3,980 units of the CB350 in September and 3,714 units in August this year.
There could be two reasons for the significant difference between the Hunter 350 and CB350 sales. One could be that the pricing. While the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 starts at Rs 1.49 lakh, the Honda CB350 is priced at Rs 2 lakh for the DLX version. The other reason being the vast dealer and service network that Royal Enfield has to offer in comparison to the Honda BigWing showrooms that retail the CB350 as well as the CB350RS in India.
