The Research is aimed at the study of Royal Enfield Brand in Indian Markets – So far how they have performed and suggestions for them to grab more market share and be profitable. Every year, they have sold modest numbers but despite low numbers, they continue to command a position of respect and awe in the Indian motorcycle market. The objective of the study was to study the different product lines, marketing strategy and Brand Management of Royal Enfield Bullets in Indian market.
1. Bullet riders are mostly Value-Expressive, with an internal locus of control and a strong sense of independence.
2. The company has been cashing in on the iconic status it has and has done little to reinforce its image amongst an exploding two-wheeler market.
3. The pricing of the motorcycle might also be looked upon as conservative.
Royal Enfield has for a while now targeted the youth market with lure of freedom. However, they have done little to reinforce their position. Maybe advertising campaigns targeted at the Value-expressive customer would enable the brand to reap the benefits of its iconic position in a much more productive way. Also, most users find it imperative for the company to improve its After Sales Service and Spares availability.
