Royal Enfield have announced a price hike on the Classic 350 and 650cc duo; Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 models, in India. The Classic 350cc which was launched at ₹1.84 lakh (ex-showroom) will now cost ₹1.90 lakh (old showroom). The top variant under the 350cc now costs ₹2.21,000. The upward price trend was seen across the automotive sector.
The Chennai-based company did not disclose the reason for the move, but could be related to input costs and prolonged shortages of semiconductors.
The Royal Enfield 650 series has a price revision of approximately ₹3,000 to ₹5,000. With the new price revision, the price of Interceptor starts at ₹2.88 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to ₹3.15 lakh (old showroom). The price of the Continental GT now fluctuates between ₹3.06 lakh (ex-showroom) at ₹3.22 lakh (old showroom).
Prior to this, Royal Enfield had made some changes to the Meteor 350 and Himalayan bikes due to semiconductor issues. The company has removed the Tripper navigation module which is now available as an accessory which will be priced separately.
