Companies like TVS and Hero MotoCorp have already entered the world of connected mobility. According to Bikewale, Royal Enfield is also likely to enter the world of connected mobility.
Royal Enfield plans to take the smartphone as well as an integrated Bluetooth connectivity approach and introduce them to through their upcoming models in the future.
