The company currently is focused on building and expanding its presence in South-Asian countries. Royal Enfield has presence in Indonesia through two exclusive stores in Jakarta and at Bali and also has the first exclusive gear store outside India at Jakarta. In Thailand, Royal Enfield currently has an exclusive store in Bangkok.
Speaking on this strategic foray, Mr Rudratej (Rudy) Singh – President Royal Enfield said, “Royal Enfield endeavours to reinvent and lead the global mid-size motorcycle segment, and South-East Asia is a critical market for us in this global strategy. This segment is expanding in India and is a huge opportunity for Royal Enfield across the world. Vietnam has a large population that is young and commutes on two-wheelers, and is now aspiring to adopt the right medium of self-expression and exploration. With a strong heritage behind us, Royal Enfield offers motorcycles that are evocative and fun to ride, and at the same time, practical, functional and accessible for everyday use. With its vast landscapes and countryside, Vietnam is an ideal destination for pure motorcycling experiences. We hope to fuel the culture of exploration and leisure motorcycling with some of our best motorcycles in Vietnam”.

Royal Enfield uses traditional craftsmanship and modern technology as a means to create motorcycles, which stand for reviving the pleasures motorcycling at its purest.
