Arijit Malakar, Head of Research - Retail, Ashika Group
Eicher motors Q4FY22 numbers came in line with the consensus estimates as the good performance of Royal Enfield negated the weak performance of VECV. RE Classic 350 based on the new J platform gained good traction in the international market with Himalayan and scram created a new category of budgeted adventure tourer bikes.
The company continues to dominate the over 250 cc segment with around 90% market share. The company is banking on export and the segment is already showing positive results by growing stupendously. With supply chain issues likely to ease post Q2FY23, the continued product portfolio expansion will aid domestic recovery and support ramp-up in exports.
