Along with the motorcycles, Royal Enfield would also retail its range of purpose-built gear and apparel and accessories.
Philippines is an important market for Royal Enfield, given the country’s high dependence on two-wheelers for commuting and as well as leisure riding. The growing middle class in the country is now looking to upgrade to the middle weight segment that lends itself very well to Royal Enfield’s all-purpose, evocative, classic-styled motorcycles. Royal Enfield’s range of modern classic bikes introduces a new category of mid-sized motorcycles (250cc-750cc) that will make leisure motorcycling more accessible and fun.
Royal Enfield has its manufacturing base in Chennai, India and is wholly owned by Eicher Motors Limited, a leading player in the Indian automobile space.
