Speaking on Royal Enfield’s performance Mr. Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director & CEO, Eicher Motors Limited said, “Royal Enfield continues to do well in Q3 2014 with our best ever quarter results. We have registered a phenomenal year-on-year growth of 69.9%, selling 81,977 units in Q3 2014 compared to
48,242 units in Q3 2013. We continue to extract maximum operating leverage from the business, thus improving the EBIT margin to 23.4% in Q3 2014 over 17.5% in Q3 2013.”

“At Royal Enfield, we have set our sights on becoming the leaders in global mid-sized motorcycling segment and we are working towards it persistently. While we continue to ramp up capacity at our Oragadam plant month on month; we have recently acquired a 50 acre plot in Vallam Vadagal, near Chennai, Tamil Nadu. This plot is located within 10 kms of our Oragadam facility. This prepares us for future expansion to meet the growing demand of our motorcycles worldwide”, he said.

“I am very excited that Pierre Terblanche has recently joined our team; he is one of the most prolific industrial designers for motorcycles, and is best known for having created some extra-ordinary motorcycles as the head of design for Ducati for over a decade”, Siddhartha added.

Continuing its focus on international markets, Royal Enfield has done several events in UK, US and Europe this quarter. In September at the Goodwood Revival Festival, UK Royal Enfield previewed its new apparel and accessories line inspired by the despatch riders of the Great Wars. The new collection explores the brand’s rich motorcycling heritage and in particular its history with the traditions of despatch riders. In August, Royal Enfield participated in the Bonneville Speed Trials, held at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA with two specially modified Continental GTs prepared by ace performance tuner Matt Capri. Royal Enfield was also present in the Isle of Man Classic nwhere former Royal Enfield racer Steve Linsdell participated in the ‘Classic Lap of Honour’. In August, Royal Enfield also announced the appointment of KSR Group as its distributor in Germany.

which will be primarily retailing Royal Enfield range of apparel and accessories. To further enhance the after-sales service experience, Royal Enfield recently opened its largest and state-of-the-art exclusive service station at Okhla, Delhi. The service station has 16 fully automated service ramps and a dedicated
24X7 helpline with pick and drop facility.

Commenting on VECV, Siddhartha said, ‘The commercial vehicle industry has been in slump for almost
36 months now but we do see some green shoots emerging in the sector. At VECV, we are seeing some marginal growth in the sector as we see the Heavy Duty and Light and Medium Duty (LMD) categories showing marginal growth this quarter, while Buses are still declining. In this quarter, VECV has again outpaced the industry in both LMD and Buses segment. In the 5-14 tonne segment VECV’s Eicher branded trucks increased its quarterly market share to 33.6% in Q3 2014 from 29.1% in Q3 2013. In the Buses segment we increased our market share to 14.4% in Q3 2014 from 12.3% in Q3 2013. VECV has also seen growth of 5.6% in the exports market with sales of 1237 units in this quarter.”

“Our new Light and Medium Duty Pro-Series range has met with a very encouraging response and is doing very well since its launch in the beginning of this year. In the last two months of this year, we will be introducing the Pro-Series range of Heavy Duty trucks and we expect a similar response towards it”, he added.

“Our joint venture with Polaris, Eicher-Polaris Pvt Ltd (EPPL) continues to meet strategic milestones and we are on course for the launch in 2015. We have also started developing our distribution network across the country”,he further added.
