The Chennai-based company reported domestic sales of 20,073 units and exports of 7221 units last month, the company said in a press release.
According to the company, May 2020 and May 2021 were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns and movement restrictions across the country. Production at the Royal Enfield plants in Chennai, and retail networks across the country were impacted due to local lockdowns.
The company’s manufacturing operations at the Thiruvottiyur, Oragadam and Vallam Vadagal facilities in Tamil Nadu remained shut between May 13 and 16, and between May 27 and 29.
In May, Royal Enfield had to recall close to 2,36,966 motorcycles across its Classic, Bullet and Meteor range for identifying a defective ignition coil in bikes manufactured and sold between December 2020 and April 2021.
