It is likely that the increase in input costs has prompted Royal Enfield to increase the prices of its motorcycles
In line with industry trends, Royal Enfield has increased the prices of its motorcycles in the first month of the year. The global supply chain has been negatively impacted by a pandemic, resulting in shortages of various raw materials and components. The shift to stricter emissions standards is also responsible for price increases in the automotive industry.

No new changes have been made for these Royal Enfield bikes. The new-generation Classic 350 was launched last year with several improvements, including a new chassis and engine. It has resulted in significant improvements in reduced vibration and driving dynamics. The first Royal Enfield bike to benefit from these updates was the Meteor 350 launched in November 2020.
Both the new-generation Classic 350 and Meteor 350 share the same 350cc engine. It generates a maximum power of 20.2 hp and a maximum torque of 27 Nm. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Next-gen versions of other Royal Enfield 350cc bikes will also receive these updates.
Himalayan is equipped with a 411cc engine that delivers 24.3 hp and 32 Nm. The transmission is a 5 speed constant mesh unit. In the future, Royal Enfield will expand the Himalaya range with several new products.
One is the Himalayan 450, which will be positioned as a premium Adv bike. It takes on rivals like KTM 390 Adventure and BMW G310GS. Himalayan 450 will use a brand new platform. It is expected to deliver about 40 horsepower at maximum power.
