Royal Enfield has set up a local assembly plant in Argentina. This facility will initially assemble three models - the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 starting this month.
The unit has been set up in partnership with Grupo Simpa, who is also Royal Enfield’s local distributor in the country since 2018. Alberto Fernández, the President of Argentina, was also present at the opening of the facility.
