Royal Enfield remains one of the fastest growing motorcycle brands in the country and the bike maker continues to be one of the most consistent motorcycle sellers month-on-month. Apart from the healthy sales growth, RE also recorded a new milestone in July with the sale of the Classic 500 Pegasus Edition. Only 250 units of the limited edition motorcycle was available for sale, which were sold out in just 178 seconds.
That said, the next few months will see Royal Enfield introduce the much awaited Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 globally. The bikes are expected to be game changers for the company in markets overseas.
