Thoughts About Royal Enfield Witnessing A Decline In Domestic Sales For the Month Of March 2020
A decline in sales was expected during the month of March considering every one's focus changed from automobiles (and pretty much everything else) to the Covid-19 pandemic. Add to that a mandatory nationwide lock down. We expect sales to gain pace once the lock down is called off, and more importantly, once life goes back to a new normal.
