Royal Enfield Price Hike — 650cc Twins Prices Remain Unaffected

Royal Enfield is said to be increasing prices of its entire 350cc and 500cc models from the 1st of February. The price hike varying between Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000, depending on the model will be applicable on the entire range. This includes the Classic, Bullet and Thunderbird models in the product lineup.

The report is yet to be confirmed, although the hike in prices could be mainly due to the increased manufacturing costs. However, the prices for the recently launched 650-twins (Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650) remain unaffected. Also, there is no confirmation whether or not, the Himalayan motorcycle will get a hike in prices as well.

Royal Enfield is currently updating its entire product lineup with the ABS system. Most models have already received the update, apart from the Bullet 350. We can expect the Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer to bring in the new safety feature on the Bullet 350 soon, especially with the April 2019 deadline coming soon.

The Royal Enfield 650-Twins - Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 will remain unaffected and continue to be available at Rs 2.49 lakh and Rs 2.64 lakh, respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). We got to ride the two motorcycles recently — here is our review of the Continental GT 650.

The two motorcycles were launched in India in November last year and have been received well in the market; selling close to 629 units in the month of December 2018 — here is our detailed review of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is the only other offering yet to receive any confirmation regarding its price. Currently, the Himalayan - the first adventure-tourer motorcycle from the brand, comes with a price tag of Rs 1.79 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).

Further to this, the company is also expected to introduce a new model to its current lineup, the Trials edition. The Bullet Trials Edition will be available in both 350cc and 500cc variants, with certain details being leaked online already.
