Kinetic lends a hand
Kinetic motorcycles is a company of the Kinetic Group, recently acquired by Mahindra and Mahindra. Now, Royal Enfield has cut a deal to have the new C5's painted at the plant that Kinetic has in Ahmednagar, to try to cope with the huge demand of the new model. Demand is running at 6500 bikes a month against the 4000 a month capacity of the Royal Enfield Tiruvottiyur plant. Ahmednagar is 600 miles away from Tiruvottiyur, but it is close to Mumbai. Will the bikes get exported directly from there?
