Royal Enfield has announced the revised prices of its range of motorcycles.
Last week, we reported about the imminent price hike of the Royal Enfield bikes. Prices have been increased by up to INR 1,500 across the 350cc, 400cc and 500cc offerings. That said, the price of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 remain unchanged.
While the earlier report had no clarity concerning the pricing of the Royal Enfield Himalayan, the adventure tourer too has seen a hike of INR 1,500. Although Royal Enfield hasn't revealed the exact reason for the increase in prices, it is attributed to a rise in manufacturing costs. Here's a complete lowdown on the new pricing of the Royal Enfield motorcycles.
