Written by Nizam Shaikh

Royal Enfield has offered its extended warranties which will be now offered for 5 years now on its BS6 models. The Royal Enfield extended warranties are eligible on the Royal Enfield Himalayan, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. Last year the brand introduced the Ride Sure package which offers two years of extended warranty over the standard two-year warranty for the Royal Enfield UCE motorcycles.

The new program is offering a 5-year warranty along with Road Side Assistance (RSA) and the pricing for the extended warranty program will vary depending on the model and from the time it is purchased for example if the extended warranty id purchased within 6 months of purchase or after 6 months of purchase. 

The Extended Warranty covers most mechanical parts, including the engine, transmission, fuel pump, ECU fuel injectors, crankcase, etc but is not valid on wear and tear items like cables, filters, fuses, bulbs, starter motors, clutch plates, steering race bearings, wheel bearings, brake pads, brake liners, chain sprockets and other rubber parts. 

In other news, Royal Enfield has launched its first-ever apparel and riding gear range, exclusively for women in India available online at the brand’s apparel dedicated website and alternatively at select stores in Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Kolkata. The Royal Enfield Apparel division was conceived back in 2014 but the exclusive women’s department has been launched in the last month. 

The new Royal Enfiled Women apparel collection includes safety equipment such as helmets, riding jackets, riding trousers and gloves along with shirts, t-shirts and jeans that ranges between INR 700 to INR 14,000. The new women’s collection is in-line with the brand’s commitment of ‘pure motorcycling’ inspired by the brand’s ‘motorcycling way of life’, keeping in mind the varied weather conditions across the country. 

The brand has also announced its sales performance for June 2020 and has recorded sales of 38,065 units in the month of June 2020 as against 58,339 units for June 2019 which shows a decline of 35% when compared to the same period in the last year.
