The Chennai-based retro motorcycle making company, Royal Enfield has been stepping up the growth ladder at quite a significant rate, especially from the last few years. According to the recent sales reports, the company has grown by overall 25.5 per cent in the month of May 2017. The company has sold a total of 60,696 units excluding exports when compared to the 48,604 units the company sold in May 2016.
The company majorly sold 350cc models and the growth recorded went up to 29 per cent as the company sold 55,823 units of it.
On the other hand, Royal Enfield only sold 873 units of it and 350cc+ model sales recorded an overall dip of 10 per cent.
Talking about the export figures, the company again recorded a huge growth in the form of 2049 units sold as opposite to the 1372 units sold in May 2016. The reason why Royal Enfield might have experienced such a humongous growth is the fact that the company started off with direct operations in Brazil which is the 4th largest 2-wheeler market around the globe.

The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is clearly the first choice for the bike builders when it comes to bike modifications. A Pune-based bike customization house, Dochaki Designs has come up with an awesome looking scrambler 350 based on the iconic RE Classic 350. The bike has been christened Maverick. The bike took around 60 days to come out in its final scrambler form.
Maverick gets an extended swing arm, redesigned scrambler seat, shock boots, new fender, headlight, exhaust assembly and also chassis has been altered to increase the ground clearance on the bike. Also, it’s tank capacity has been increased up by 20% for a longer range. The best part about the bike is the blue Top-Gun inspired retro paint scheme it gets on the fuel tank and the side body panels. A puny round tail light sits at the place of the stock tail light of the bike and also the bike’s spokes are shod with chunky tyres to give a slightly rugged feel. The engine, on the other hand, stays untouched and nothing has been tweaked to bring out any change in performance.
We certainly liked the minimalistic work carried on to change the whole of the look from the stock bike. Maverick gets a thumbs up from ACG! Stay tuned for more exciting updates like this.
