I'm pretty sure they're selling a good bit more than 1,200 bikes a year in North America.
I would have thought so too but everyone cites the same number over that recall period. There are now multiple stories, one adding only 0.01 percent of bikes may be impacted. Royal Enfield Recalls Himalayan Motorcycles Over Corroding Brake Calipers - autoevolution
And that 4,891 number is only Himalayans. Then you consider that in the 11 months to February, inclusive, RE only sold 87, 704 total motorcycles of all classes across all international markets, their figures. Then anecdotally, one of the dealers I visited told me he only sold five to seven new bikes a month. Things are good but they will get better. More interesting perhaps is that Himalyans per population have higher sales in the U.S. than Canada, based on the recall. I would have thought it would be the other way around.
I've thought about this a lot today as I was out carving up firewood for next winter. I was mulling AndyB being number five on a warranty replacement parts list where only four parts were placed in the container. The part seems to have a failure rate that RE should know about. The container crunch is over so hopefully, they will get better with after sales service or they will lose sales. Not to me and others here who like the brand and what it represents to us, but first-time buyers may go elsewhere. I've also had issues with after sales service but we are probably more enthusiasts than others.
