Given local lockdowns across States and Union Territories impacting retail operations, the company does not foresee any significant impact on ability to cater to demand.

Royal Enfield teams are focussed on ensuring support for employees and communities around its facilities. The company has issued advisories to all dealerships in India to adhere to local regulations and follow local administrative orders, as may apply. All other employees across Royal Enfield’s offices, including corporate offices in Chennai and Gurgaon continue to work from home, until further notice, it said.
