Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the auto industry has taken a huge hit. To keep business running, manufacturers are launching some of their new products silently. As soon as the pandemic ends, every manufacturer will have some new product to launch.
According to CarandBike, Simon Warburton, Royal Enfield's Head of Product Development, said that there have been many ideas about new products that could have been explored further for production. Through a webinar, Simon said that although the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the 650 Twins make up the bulk of sales across Europe, there are plenty of new bikes in the pipeline.
Also, due to the COVID-19 situation, Royal Enfield recorded a total sales figure of 91 units in the month of April. The company's Tiruvottiyur, Oragadam and Vallam Vadagal plants in Chennai, and it's entire supply chain including dealerships, have remained closed across the country throughout April.
Siddhartha Lal, MD, Eicher Motors stated, "If we have a few months of zero revenue, which is possibly the case right now; it's okay, we will survive. We're not hand to mouth anymore, like we were a decade ago, so we can invest tremendously in the future. We want to focus, to do less. It's not that we will never look outside of our portfolio, but we believe our opportunity is to grow Royal Enfield right now."
Some of the new products that company has to offer in the future are the new Royal Enfield Meteor 350 (codenamed Fireball) that will replace the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X. The Meteor 350 has also been spotted testing on the indian roads. On the other hand, the Himalayan is due for a complete revamp and is likely to be codenamed as the Sherpa.
Royal Enfield recently updated its 650 twins to meet BS6 emission norms in India. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT650 are powered by the same 649cc air and oil-cooled, parallel-twin cylinder engine. The unit produces a maximum power of 47bhp at 7,250rpm and a peak torque of 52Nm at 5,250rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox, and features a slipper-clutch.
The company also launched the BS6-compliant version of its best-selling model, the Classic 350, in the Indian market at Rs 1.65 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
Thoughts About The upcoming Models From Royal Enfield
The Royal Enfield has been a cult following in our country. To date, whatever product the company has launched has been an absolute success and so we can expect the same for the upcoming models.
