Royal Enfield India is to introduce its updated BS-IV line-up in the Indian market from April 1, 2017. The step has been taken to meet the deadline that the government of India announced last year on 25th February 2016. The Govt. drafted a notification to bring forward Bharat Stage-IV vehicular emission norms for all electronic vehicles to maintain the air pollution. The Royal Enfield dealerships also confirmed that they have started accepting booking for the Bharat Stage-IV bikes, though the new line-up is yet to reach to dealerships across the country. The new range will have price hike up to RS.3000 to RS.4000.
Euro 4 has already been introduced in the European market with some major safety changes that include rear disk brake, Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) and fuel-injection. However, the company has yet to release the official statement about the updates and what changes have been made in the engine to meet the emission norms. However, the entire Royal Enfield range feature automatic headlight on AHO feature that too is mandatory for two-wheelers.
After getting the positive record sale with 59.6% hike than the last fiscal year, the Royal Enfield India is targeting the middleweight bikes with 750 cc twin cylinder engine to achieve global leadership. The step is appreciable because the company now has huge customer range in the Europe and the USA. The bike will be introduced in Indian market sometime in 2017. The company has invested around 600 for R&D and BS-IV is the part of it. Siddhartha Lal, MD and CEO, Eicher Motors (RE’s parent company) said on sale that the current sale record is satisfactory enough not only in the domestic market, but in the international market as well.
