July 30, 2021

It seems plenty of people are looking at Royal Enfield’s range for retro giggles if June’s motorcycle registrations are anything to go by…

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 sold 178 units, making it the highest-selling ‘Modern Classic’, while in the ‘custom’ class the new RE Meteor 350 sold 110 units. Interestingly, for June 2021 alone, Royal Enfield sold 508 bikes, pushing the mighty Suzuki into last place with just 445 sold…

About the Author

Bertie Simmonds

As a child Bertie (well, Robert back then… blame his sister for the nickname) was exposed to motorcycles thanks to his uncles. They would show up at his house with a lovely lady as pillion throughout the 1970s and 1980s. After a naughty time on field bikes (it’s what we did back then) Bertie passed his test in the early 1990s and became a reporter for MCN in 1995, moving to the sports desk and covering World Superbikes in 1996. With a change to Bike Magazine in 1997, he stayed until 2000 as news, features and road test editor. Moving into PR with Cosworth, Bert was bored with cars and returned to bikes in 2001 with Two Wheels Only, becoming editor in 2002 and leaving to be freelance at the end of 2004. With almost a decade freelancing, Bertie joined Mortons in 2013 and became editor of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, a post he’s desperately clung to, to this day. And no, he’s never had a pretty girl on the back of his bike. BSimmonds@mortons.co.uk
