Royal Enfield has announced it will provide an extension for motorcycles coming towards the end of their warranties by three months in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.

For any Royal Enfield motorcycles with a policy due to expire between March and May 2020, the warranty will be extended by another three months to ensure ‘experiences are not negatively impacted by the current lockdown’.

As it stands, dealerships across the United Kingdom have been closed since 23 March as a result of strict measures introduced to curb the spread of the virus, though some workshops have remained opened for servicing purposes with priority to key workers.

Royal Enfield says it will continue to monitor the situation closely with regards to providing further extensions going forward.

“Royal Enfield has announced that they will be extending the warranty period by three months on any motorcycle whose policy expires between March and May 2020, through the authorised dealer network, as a measure to ensure that customer support and experiences are not negatively impacted by the current lockdown.

“Royal Enfield will continue to monitor the official government and public health directives about the closure of all non-essential retailers and should there be an announcement of further extensions to this period, then appropriate amendments to the current warranty extension will be made accordingly. 

“Further details will be released once normal business has resumed.”

What’s coming from Royal Enfield in 2020?

Though Royal Enfield – like all manufacturers – are being hampered by the widespread lockdown measures around the world, it is on the verge of launching its latest model, the Meteor, in its local Indian market.

It is possible the model will come to Europe with a larger engine, though this is yet to be confirmed.

There are also rumours of a small version of the Himalayan ADV bike, which is expected to wear the Sherpa nameplate.
