  • Royal Enfield revised the oil change and service interval for three motorcycles.
  • Royal Enfield Bullet, Thunderbird and Classic are part of these changes.

Royal Enfield has made slight changes to the service interval of three of its motorcycles - Bullet, Classic and Thunderbird - in the Indian market. In addition to the service interval, the company has also revised the oil change interval of all the aforementioned motorcycles in order to improve the ownership cost. It claims that this move will result in the reduction of cost of ownership by 40 per cent over three years. The new Royal Enfield Bullet 350, which was recently launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.12 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom), will also fall under this new service interval process.

The homegrown bikemaker also stated that it will start practising new processes and technology in accordance with new semi-synthetic oil for servicing purposes. Royal Enfield is confident that all these new initiatives will help in increasing the service interval on Bullet, Classic and Thunderbird to 6 months/5000 kilometres from the present 3 months/3000 kilometres. The company has also extended the oil change interval from the existing 6 months/5000 kilometres to 12 months/10,000 kilometres. The brand intends to lower the overall service intervention needed by a bike annually, and hence bringing down the ownership cost nearly 40 per cent in a time frame of three years. For those asking, Royal Enfield, identical to the entire auto industry, is witnessing low sales.

RE has made it very clear that the new initiative will cover the motorcycles that come with new engines, not the older cast iron powertrains. Hence, motorcycles such as Royal Enfield Bullet, Classic and the Thunderbird range will come under this initiative while the likes of Himalayan, Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 will not be a part of this.
