Royal Enfield is forced to revise its plans: the long-awaited Meteor 350 will in fact not debut before June.
Unfortunately, a logical consequence after the closure of the Chennai plants due to Covid-19 and the delays that the production stop has entailed.
Now the factories are back in operation, and as in Italy, extraordinary measures are taken to ensure security and social distancing, but according to local sector media, there may be strategic reasons behind the recalculation
Indeed, Royal Enfield suffered particularly from the effects of the pandemic on sales. In the market in which it is strongest, the Indian one, it sold less than 100 motorcycles during the month of April.
Numbers that in Italy, in such a situation, would tempt but which in a nation of a billion inhabitants worry, and not a little.
For this reason Royal Enfield could have delayed the debut of the Meteor 350, which as we have seen from various previews, is ready to enter the brand’s price list
