Royal Enfield Expansion into Turkish Market

Royal Enfield's Growth in the Motorcycle Industry

Royal Enfield is quickly becoming one of the leading motorcycle manufacturers globally. Instead of focusing solely on performance and technology, the company prioritizes providing an authentic and pure motorcycling experience. This approach has led to the creation of a lineup of bikes that are simple, stylish, accessible, and easy to ride, contributing to the brand's recent surge in popularity.

Expansion into the Turkish Market

After successfully gaining traction in markets like the Philippines and Canada, Royal Enfield has now entered the Turkish market. The company has partnered with K-Rides Motosiklet ve Bisiklet San. ve Tic. A.S., a subsidiary of Kibar Holding, to establish the first Royal Enfield flagship store in Istanbul this spring. This move aims to cater to the growing community of motorcycle enthusiasts in Turkey.

Enhancing the Motorcycle Ownership Experience

Gokhan Lokmanoglu, Chief Corporate Development Officer of Kibar Holding, emphasized the alignment between the rising demand for motorcycles in Turkey and the company's mission to enhance the aspirations of motorcycle enthusiasts. K-Rides plans to offer a comprehensive business model that covers all aspects of motorcycle ownership, including sales, retail, aftermarket, and after-sales service. Additionally, the company intends to organize rides and events to engage and grow the community.

Confidence in the Turkish Market

Yadvinder Sing Guleria, Chief Commercial Officer of Royal Enfield, expressed confidence in K-Rides' ability to expand the brand in the Turkish market. The company plans to introduce popular models like the Meteor, Classic, Hunter, Bullet, Interceptor, Continental GT 650, and Super Meteor in Turkey. New models such as the refreshed Himalayan and Shotgun are also on the horizon.
