Dasari further added that the new upcoming Royal Enfield motorcycles will be in the 250cc to 750cc range. He stated, "All these (new models) will play in the mid segment - 250cc to 750 cc.

He just mentioned, "We have adequate production capacity for the next 2 to 3 years, and therefore, a significant chunk of our investments will be directed towards the development of new products, technology, and capability enhancement, and global expansion."
Vinod stated that the company will be focussing on the mid-size motorcycle segment in the Indian market for the future. The mentioned how the segment has been hotting up with recent developments from its competitors, especially the partnership between Hero-Harley Davidson and also the introduction of the Honda H'ness CB 350.

Royal Enfield seems to have shifted gears with the introduction of the Meteor 350. With the introduction of one new model planned every quarter, the company seems set to retain its dominance in the segment, which is witnessing some stiff competition.
