Not only that, the HD Street Rod also did not get a single buyer during the same month. The Royal Enfield 650 twins’ popularity could be one of the main reasons for their decline in sales number.

The most expensive model which is the Continental GT 650 Chrome will cost you only Rs. 2.85 lakhs (ex-showroom). Just like the Street 750, the higher price is also the reason why the Street Rod too saw a massive drop in its sales number.
