Hi Raviraj, I guess something is not right with the model-wise sales numbers of Royal Enfield. You are showing zero for the model "Classic 500" for both Jan 2015 and Jan 2016 which cannot be true. Because the Desert Storm (which is a Classic 500) alone sells in good numbers. Two of my friends got Desert Storm very recently, so the minimum number I would expect against Classic 500 is 2

What you are seeing in the charts are Dispatch from factory to dealerships.

May be for this month the dealers didn't require fresh stocks of the bikes hence it is 0. I may be wrong but what these figures are, is dispatch and NOT Sales figures.

Edit: The same is mentioned in our Monthly Car sales threads month-on-month.

I think that's a good catch. The previous months numbers had a line item for Bullet 500 and Classic 500. In the previous months the Classic 500 has always shown ~2000 units while the Bullet 500 has shown 0.

The total sales for RE in Jan is 47,000+ but when you add up the model level numbers it shows 45297. So I think the number for Classic 500 was missed in the source chart.

As a4anurag mentioned above, these are dispatches and not sales. So there is a chance that there are no dispatches due to previous months stock still available at dealer level. But in this case, looks like the number was missed.
