Royal Enfield Has Made Its Bikes Expensive, Know Which One Became More Expensive
Royal Enfield Bullet: Royal Enfield has announced a price hike for some of its popular models like the Classic 350 Retro Roadster and the 650cc Twins. These models have only become a bit expensive. Launched in September last year, the Classic 350 was originally priced at Rs 1.84 lakh. Later, the bike got a price hike which raised the initial cost to 1.87 lakhs, and now with the new price hike, the entry-level Redditch version now starts at Rs 1.90 lakhs. The top-of-the-line version is now priced at Rs 2.21 lakh, which is Rs 6,000 more than the original launch price.
Both the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 have also become a bit expensive. The new hike is priced under Rs 3,000 (in case of the entry-level variant), however, the high end variant now costs up to Rs 5,000 more. Due to the new price correction, the Royal Enfield Interceptor is now priced between Rs 2.88 lakh and Rs 3.15 lakh, and the Continental GT 650 has been priced between Rs 3.06 lakh and Rs 3.32 lakh.
Apart from the prices, are there any other changes in the bikes. While the company has not given any official reason for the latest price hike, it is most likely to offset higher input costs and shortage of semiconductors too, which, in turn, have significantly impacted input costs as well. Recently, the company has also changed the features of Meteor 350 and Himlayan bikes. The Tripper Navigation Pod is now available only as an optional accessory on these bikes.
