It's not all bad news!

With the introduction of the new Twins, Royal Enfield has been the talk of the town. Despite all the hype, be it for the Himalayan ADV or the 650s, it looks like buyers are shying away from what has made the brand so popular in the first place: its small-displacement bikes. The company’s mid-range segment and imports are on the rise, however, so it’s not all bad.

Mid Range on the Rise:

The numbers are out and for the fourth consecutive month, the sales of the Chennai company are taking a dive with only 62,879 units moved in April 2019 versus 76,187 for the same period last year. This represents a 17-percent drop compared to 2018. On its local market in India, sales went from 60,831 units in March to 59,137 last month.

Royal Enfield Launches New Off-Road-Friendly Bullet Trials

Royal Enfield Launches New Off-Road-Friendly Bullet Trials RE is adding more off-roading to its lineup. After a healthy amount of speculation and a teaser that gave us a taste of what was to come, Royal Enfield has finally unveiled its new scramblerized Bullet 350 and 500 Trials. The brand introduced the two new variants of the well-known model Tuesday. Teasers and SpeculationRoyal Enfield Keeps Teasing A ScramblerRoyal Enfield Could Be Working On A Classic 500 Scrambler Though Royal Enfield has a knack for a perfectly good retro look with modern trimmings, the company hasn’t fallen for the “café racer” or “scrambler” gimmick as hard as other brands have.

Surprisingly, the culprit is the 350 and under segment. In fact, the small displacements sales have dipped by 21 percent compared to April 2018, which have dragged the results down. The brand’s small bikes represent the biggest chunk of its sales (over 90 percent).

Not all is grim in the Royal family. In fact, Royal Enfield’s mid-range models are fairing really well with a 21-percent increase in sales over last year. That’s not to mention that thanks to international interest for the new Twins, imports have more than doubled since 2018, recording a 140-percent hike. The brand has also recently set foot in Korea, which could give global exports yet another boost in the months to come. With the Continental GT 650 and INT 650 finally in the showrooms, there’s hope the mid-range might help even out the odds against the apparently declining small-displacement segment.

Jawa 001 Goes For Bonkers Sum At Charity Auction How much would you be willing to pay for a 300cc Single? Jawa is another classic bike brand which has been brought back from the dead in recent years. Last year, to great fanfare, the company broke away from its two stroke roots and announced a completely 300cc new four stroke engine. Three models, the Jawa, Jawa Forty Two, and the Perak have been announced, but are already sold out until November.

Royal Enfield is an Indian motorcycle manufacturing brand with the tag of "the oldest global motorcycle brand in continuous production" manufactured in factories in Chennai in India.

Highlight of this issue was Royal Enfield historian Gordon May' s account of his ride on the new Royal Enfield 650 twins during the press launch in John Mountford wrote in to ask if anyone knew if the man standing next to his father, Royal Enfield ' s one-time sales manager and then managing director

While scooters and small bikes have been the best sellers on the world’s most important motorcycle market, there could seemingly be a shift towards bigger, more versatile offerings. One thing is for sure: the world is excited about the Twins and we look forward to more innovation from the Royal brand.

This Custom Royal Enfield Desert Runner Ain’t Afraid Of No Dirt.
A scrambler we'd actually take out in the desert. Royal Enfield opted for a standard and café racer look with the design of its new Continental GT 650 and INT 650. That didn’t keep a number of custom shops to turn either of the Twins into the single retro style the company hasn’t properly touched on yet: the scrambler. Some versions resulted in scramblers in name but not in purpose. This isn’t the case with Revival Cycles’ design. This Interceptor-based scrambler goes way beyond the simple aesthetic. We would totally take it out on the trails and we’re pretty sure it would be a hoot.
