The Royal Enfield Classic 350, which was launched at Rs 1.84 lakh, had previously undergone a price increase and was now available for Rs 1.87 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom).
This is the second price increase for the Classic 350, which now costs Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom). The top-spec model is now Rs 6,000 more expensive, costing Rs 2.21 lakh (ex-showroom).
Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650
The pricing of its 650cc twins, the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650, have also been raised. Both bikes are now priced between Rs 3,000 and Rs 5,000. The Interceptor 650 now has a price range of Rs 2.88 lakh to Rs 3.15 lakh (ex-showroom), while the Continental GT 650 now has a pricing range of Rs 3.06 lakh to Rs 3.32 lakh (ex-showroom).
The cause for the price increase has not been disclosed by Royal Enfield, nevertheless, we may presume it to be due to a continuing semiconductor scarcity and growing input prices. The Tripper navigation pod was recently withdrawn from the standard fitments for the Himalayan and Meteor and is now available as an optional equipment.
