Amid this, it is likely to take a hit in terms of demand and its production, he added. Mahindra & Mahindra has signed a pact with the company for brand licensing. M&M will be producing Jawa Motorcycles and it will also be involved in the sales process. Though they have small exposure in terms of their size.
The biggest competitor in this segment for Jawa Motorcycles is Eicher Motors which has a 95 per cent market share. It can be said that the loss to Jawa will positively impact Royal Enfield.
Moreover, the numbers being posted by Eicher Motors on a monthly basis is encouraging. In September the company sold over 60,000 units which went up to over 66,000 in October. Meanwhile the November and December sales numbers were 63,782 and 68,995.
