- Royal Enfield CKD Unit expands local assembly operation to Nepal.
- CKD Unit in Birgunj boasts an annual capacity of 20,000 RE bikes.
- It has begun operations with the local assembly of Classic 350 and Scram 411.
Royal Enfield has made a significant move in Nepal by introducing a new facility for local assembly and complete knock-down (CKD) operations.
This is the fifth CKD assembly unit established by Royal Enfield worldwide to enhance its global manufacturing presence.
Situated in Birgunj, the state-of-the-art assembly unit covers an area of 100,000 square feet and has the capacity to produce 20,000 units annually.
Royal Enfield utilizes CKD operations to send motorcycles in separate parts to the CKD plant, where they assemble them according to specific market requirements, enabling local manufacturing and customization.
The partnership with the Triveni Group in Nepal has paved the way for this significant expansion. This collaboration signifies Royal Enfield’s dedication to enhancing its presence and serving the growing demand for its motorcycles in Nepal and the broader South Asian market.
Today marks an important chapter of our journey in the Nepali market as we announce the commencement of our CKD operations in Birgunj, in partnership with Triveni Group. This is a testament to our commitment to the market potential and the growing motorcycling community.”
