RE overtakes Harleys

Yaah. Should have happened sometime eventually. Has a bigger base of people and a far better vehicle too.

Interesting!


"Royal Enfield sold just over 300,000 units in 2014 to Harley-Davidson’s 2,67,999. To be sure, the American motorcycles are more expensive (twice the price of the top-end Royal Enfield) and popular brands of motorcycles sell in staggering numbers in populous India. But then as recently as in 2013, Harley-Davidson dominated sales selling 100,000 more motorcycles than Royal Enfield."
