Royal Enfield Planning Lighter Motorcycles Aimed At Women
Royal Enfield, famous for its big heavy retro motorcyles, is reportedly planning to introduce lighter, affordable motorcycles for younger riders and women.
The brand name ‘Explorer’ is expected to be used for this line of two-wheelers.
Currently, Royal Enfield’s products are the heaviest in class with most of them weighing around 200 kg. Compared to this, Bajaj’s Avenger weighs just 159 kgs.
The first offering in the light-weight series could be a roadster model having a lower seating position.
The brand has been of late attracting women riders, especially from Goa, Kerala, Chandigarh, Maharashtra, and Karnataka.
RE will be launching a new generation of its popular Thunderbird and existing models will get BS6 variants soon.
