Royal Enfield Himalayan sales clock 0 units in the month of May 2017 as compared to 1030 units sales in the same month a year ago.
Looks like the Royal Enfield Himalayan is slowly fading away from the scenes of the Indian market (sales have been on a consistent fall). Registering 0 sales in the month of May 2017, the Himalayan in contrast sold a healthy 1030 units in the month of May 2016.
These are the sales figures of the Himalayan for the respective months –
* September 2016 – 1263 units
* January 2017 – 638 units
* February 2017 – 491 units
* March 2017 – 53 units
The above figures are evident enough to tell that the sales have dwindled. Have sales been stopped by Royal Enfield? The answer to that question when contacted a dealership in Bangalore is no. It is still available.
It is indeed a brave and an out of the box move (considering the company’s product portfolio which consists of the regular and familiar Classic, Thunderbird and Bullet range of motorcycles) when we got to know that Royal Enfield is making an adventure tourer and offering it with an all-new engine.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is still the most affordable adventure tourer that is available in India today. India does have a good market for adventure tourering bikes and that is the reason we saw launches of the Honda Africa Twin, Ducati Multistrada 950 and Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 a few months ago and will be witnessing the launches of more adventure tourers from manufacturers like the Italian SWM Motorcycles and Benelli.
Earlier this year, several Himalayan owners from across the country reported issues with their motorcycle. This could probably be a reason for the dwindling sales of the Himalayan. A few weeks back, Royal Enfield boss Siddhartha Lal confirmed that a bigger version of the Himalayan is on the cards. Hope Royal Enfield will not goof up with the bigger Himalayan like it did with the current model.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is powered by a 411cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine that is capable of producing 24.5 HP of power and 32 Nm of torque. The most modern RE bike has no direct competition, yet.
