Royal Enfield has announced a price hike for its entire motorcycle range, including the Bullet, Classic, Himalayan and 650 twins.
The asking price of the Bullet 350, the most affordable motorcycle from the brand, has been upped by Rs. 2756/- over all three variants. Thus, the Bullet 350 X now costs Rs. 1,27,093/-, the Standard Black version is priced Rs. 1,33,260/- and the Bullet 350 ES is retailed at Rs. 1,42,705 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
Cost of the Classic 350 has increased by Rs 1,837/-, after the Royal Enfield price hike, for both single-channel and dual-channel ABS variants. The former is priced at Rs. 1,61,668/- for all paint shades, while the latter’s price differs according to the colour chosen.
Price of the Classic 350 dual channel range is set between Rs. 1,69,617/- for the black colour and Rs. 1,86,319/- for the stealth black and chrome black colours with alloy wheels.
Similarly, the Himalayan’s retail price has also been hiked up to Rs. 1837/-. The sole adventure-oriented motorcycle in the brand’s lineup now costs from Rs. 1,91,401/- (for the granite black and snow white colours) to Rs. 1,94,155/- (sleet grey and gravel grey) and ends at Rs. 1,95,990/- for the lake blue and rock red paint schemes.
Finally, come the 650 twins that have seen their cost increased by up to Rs. 1837/-. The Interceptor 650 now costs between Rs. Rs 2,66,755/- and Rs. 2,87,787/-, while the Continental GT is priced between Rs. Rs 2,82,513/- and Rs. Rs 3,03,544/-.
No changes have been made to the motorcycles, be it cosmetic or mechanical and the reason for the price hike is not known. It might have been due to rising input costs, but we have to wait for an official communication from Royal Enfield to confirm if that is the case.
