Royal Enfield sold 2,25,368 motorcycles in the first quarter, an increase of 21 per cent from 1,86,032 units in the same period of the 2022-23 fiscal.
"Q1 has been significant for Eicher Motors as both Royal Enfield and VECV have registered their best ever first quarter performance, and have recorded tremendous growth," Eicher Motors Managing Director & CEO Siddhartha Lal said.
At Royal Enfield, the Hunter 350 and Super Meteor 650 have significantly helped the company in growing the market and continue to bring in a new set of consumers from across the globe, he added.
"As we continue to strengthen our product portfolio we have some really exciting and amazing motorcycles being launched in the forthcoming quarters," Lal said.
He noted that even with increasing players in the mid-sized market, Royal Enfield would look at retaining leadership in the segment going ahead.

"We are in full speed of execution. To start off we we plan to have a production capacity of 1.5 lakh units. It is going to be in a modular form," he noted.
VECV, a joint venture between the Volvo Group and Eicher Motors, also recorded its best-ever first quarter with sales of 19,571 units as against sales of 17,469 vehicles in Q1 of the corresponding quarter last year.
