One of India’s oldest motorcycle makers Royal Enfield said it has sold only 91 units in the month of April 2020 due to suspension of production on account of coronavirus pandemic. 

Eicher Motors, which operates Royal Enfield brand, in a regulatory filing said, “In accordance with the directives of the Government, and the complete lockdown in the country owing to COVID19 pandemic, Royal Enfield suspended operations and production across its factories, technology centres in India and UK, all company offices and dealerships in the country starting March 23, 2020.”

The company said that Royal Enfield’s manufacturing facilities across Tiruvottiyur, Oragadam and Vallam Vadagal in Chennai, and the entire supply chain including the company’s dealerships across India, remained closed for the month of April. 

“Due to the complete halt in operations, Royal Enfield has reported sales of 91 units for the month of April 2020,” the company said. 

“Royal Enfield will continue to closely monitor the situation and take appropriate action as per regulatory and administrative guidance,” the statement added. 

In April 2019, the Chennai-based motorcycle maker sold 62,879 units in the domestic market and 3,742 in the exports market.
