Royal Enfield sales dipped 2.12 percent in domestic markets while exports surged 48.09 percent on a YoY basis
The ongoing global semi-conductor shortage has taken its toll across every two and four wheeler maker in India. Production schedules are in turmoil and deliveries are being deferred to contend with this shortage. New launches are also being put on hold as a result of these supply issues.
Royal Enfield was also affected by production constraints right from 2020 itself. It was one of the reasons why launch of Meteor 350 and new gen Classic 350 had to be delayed. However, despite delay, both motorcycles have found favour among buyers in India with waiting period stretching to as long as 2 months.

Recent Updates From RE

Models made between 1st September 2021 and 5th December 2021 have been affected by a braking issue for which 26,300 units of Classic 350 were recalled. This recall was only for Classic 350 motorcycles with rear drum brakes and single channel ABS and no other motorcycle models were affected.
Royal Enfield is working on a new Himalayan variant. The Scram 411, as it will be called, has been spied on test and in a more a road-biased guise as against the off-roader stance of the current Himalayan.
