With the recent investment of Rs. 500 crore, Royal Enfield is planning to increase the production output of their sole factory in Chennai from 30,000 units per year to 50,000 units by the beginning of 2016. A very big chunk of investment is also going towards their new product development, R&D centre and some other departments.

The company also states that they are investing on a technical centre inside city limits so that their engineers don’t have to travel very far. Currently, Royal Enfield range includes Bullet 350, Bullet 500, Bullet Electra, Classic 350, Classic 500, Classic Chrome, Classic Battle Green, Classic Desert Storm, Thunderbird 350, Thunderbird 500 and the Continental GT.

The 410cc Himalayan is expected to unveil during the Rider Mania 2015, while the official launch will take place sometime in early-2016. But the twin-cylinder Royal Enfield still seems to be some time away.
