Royal Enfield Bullet is the world’s oldest continuous production motorcycle.
Royal Enfield India has increased prices of their entire line-up and has made them BSIV compliant as per a report in Car and Bike. This move comes after a government notification which ordains that all two-wheelers sold in India from April 1, 2017, should be BSIV compliant.
The 2017 Royal Enfield Electra 350 starts at INR 1.27 lakhs while the range-topping 2017 Royal Enfield Continental GT cafe racer now gets a sticker price of INR 2.05 lakhs (both prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
Apart from BSIV compliance the bikes also gain Auto Headlamp On (AHO), another safety feature which the government is making compulsory. All time on headlamp will help make the bike be more visible to road users at dusk and poorly lit surroundings.
Royal Enfield sold 56,737 units in the domestic market in February 2017 which is a 19 percent growth on a year on year basis. Their total sales in the financial year 2016-17 so far has seen a growth of 32 percent.
The company is also working on a new twin-cylinder mill which displaces around 750 cc, expected to launch this year.
