It looks like Royal Enfield’s ‘Born to Ride’ program has paid off in spades – and the benefits reaped include a huge sale spike for the brand’s Hunter 350!

In the short span of twelve weeks, Royal Enfield has officially sold over 50,000 bikes (via RideApart). That’s a lot, considering Triumph herself sold a little more than 80,000 units last year (via BritishMotorcyclist).

The rabid pull to purchase is due partially to the fact that the Hunter 350 is RE’s cheapest motorcycle available; couple this with the bangin’ 62% spike in sales we recorded back in August (28,390 units sold for that quarter, with September seeing 17,118 Hunters sold and October’s 15,445 units following shortly after), and we can safely say whatever risks the brand took to make this happen were well worth the price paid. 

Advertising ain’t cheap, you know.

“Continuing to work towards our vision of becoming a truly global motorcycle brand, our growth momentum at Royal Enfield continues to remain promising, spearheaded by some fantastic numbers from our international markets,” enthuses B. Govindarajan, the CEO of Royal Enfield in a report from Market Screener.

“…we are confident that the Hunter 350 will open up a new market for us, thereby bringing in new customers to Royal Enfield.”

A big congrats from the wBW team, and we look forward to seeing how Royal Enfield continues to carry her legacy into the future!

  1. I’m really liking the looks of the new RE 350’s and the Hunter seems to be the best of the lot. Looking forward to seeing one in person.

  2. I lived in Singapore for a couple of years. My 3 bedroom apartment was $8,600. a month. I couldn’t justify the fees to register a car, so I had David pick me up in the morning or give my daughters a lift when needed. The point, it was cheaper to hire a driver (part-time) then purchase a car, and Singapore at 40 kilometers x 60 kilometers with 4 million people on a good day, has limited roads space, so they aggressively managed access to vehicles via taxes. It works period.
    I was enrolled in the ‘Two wheel’ course and fully intend to get licensed and buy a Vespa at the required engine size, but 2008 happened.

    Now I have the Royal Interceptor 650 and the Honda Metropolitan…

    Love the Royal Enfield story, and we’ll deserved accolades.

    I live in Florida now. Not as hot as Singapore and Thailand, Indonesia, etc aren’t a hop skip and jump away, but it’s home.
