For the past 3 months not a single unit of RE Himalayan has been sold in India
The Royal Enfield in one of the oldest motorcycle brands in the world famous for its single cylinder classic motorcycles. Last year the Chennai-based makers had introduced brand new adventure motorcycle Himalayan featuring a new 410cc engine. Very soon it has become one of the most desired motorcycles of the period. Even before the launch, it had anchored many minds who prefer some adventure rides. But things weren't quite as everyone expected. The newly born RE Himalayan couldn't live to the expectations.
According to the latest sales reports, note unit of Himalayan has been sold in the past 3 months. However, all the current Himalayans are powered by BS-III engine and the government has banned the selling and purchase of such vehicles from April 1st of 2017. The critical reception of the bike is poor. The issues have started even before the first service in some bikes. This had provoked some customers to call it as one of the worst bike RE has ever produced. The list of problems ranging from electrical section to the chassis. Some customers even filed the petition in the consumer court against RE for delivering sub-standard bike which lacks quality and refinement. Issues with the clutch, nuts, bolts, cracks in the chassis and there are even reports of fuel block due to the chipping down of paint inside the fuel tank.
Meanwhile, RE is about to introduce new Himalayan featuring BS-IV engine and fuel injection. Moreover, it is expected to get ABS braking system. For the disappointed customers, the Enfield has promised to solve all their problems. Let's hope for the best.
