Like all other manufacturers, Royal Enfield also went into lockdown from March 22 to May 5 this year due to the COVID-19 scare. After getting approvals from the government, the company started operations from May 6.
And as of today, Royal Enfield informs that it has opened almost 850 stores plus 425 studio stores in the country. Studio stores are short format sales outlets launched recently for a wider and quicker reach. This totals to about 1275 stores which are operational (comprises 90 percent of the company’s outlets in the country).
Royal Enfield adds that most of these dealerships are fully operational, however, few of them may be opening partially or on alternate days based on local guidelines. According to the official press statement the company has 940 large format stores and 500 studio stores in all.
These opened outlets are performing both sales and service operations. In addition to the strict social distancing and hygiene related guidelines, Royal Enfield has also introduced various digital channels which allow you to buy a motorcycle even without visiting a dealership.
You can discover and view your chosen motorcycle online, request home test rides. If you like the motorcycle you can also book and buy it online. Similarly, you can also avail the company’s Service on Wheels which is a mobile service fleet which services your motorcycle right at your doorstep. Various online payment facilities are also available for a contactless experience.
