Thoughts About Royal Enfield Increasing Prices For The Classic 350 & The Himalayan BS6 Models
The price increase is marginal and will not impact sales of the adventure motorcycle in the Indian market. However, with the new offer announced by Royal Enfield, it compensates for the price increase as well. The Himalayan BS6 is one among the best entry-level adventure motorcycles in the country and has a lot of fans in the country.
