Royal Enfield has expanded its reach in the international market with its first exclusive stores in the city of Madrid, Spain and Paris, France. The new stores in these countries are a part of Royal Enfield’s growth strategy in Europe and a target of leading and expanding the global mid-sized motorcycle segment (250-750cc).
While launching its exclusive retail stores in Paris and Madrid, Royal Enfield also unveiled its gear collection – motorcycle apparel and accessories – for the first time in these markets, and also showcased its limited edition motorcycle range inspired by Despatch Riders, available in three colour variants – Battle Green Despatch, Desert Storm Despatch, Squadron Blue Despatch. The gear collection and the limited edition motorcycle range has been inspired by the motorcycle ‘Despatch Riders’ from the World Wars.
Royal Enfield exclusive store in Paris is located at 98 Rue Baudin, 92300 Levallois-Perret and in Madrid at 29, Calle de Agustin de Foxa, Madrid.
Royal Enfield is expanding its presence in these markets with over 80 dealerships across France, and 25 in Spain. The brand has witnessed an upward growth of 60% in France in the first seven months of 2015, compared to the same period in last year and has plans of opening close to three more such stores in the coming year. While the two-wheeler market has grown by 23% in Spain, Royal Enfield has received a very encouraging response, reporting a sales growth of 300% between January – August 2015, over the same period in the previous year.
