While the warranty extension will offer customers piece of mind, Royal Enfield has likely delayed the launch of its upcoming motorcycle that was scheduled to take place towards the end of this month. The new offering was most likely the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 based on the new J1D platform and a replacement to the Thunderbird 350 in the company's range. Borrowing several elements from the Thunderbird X, the new name brought along a new design theme, more  equipment and a BS6 compliant engine.

Meanwhile, Royal Enfield is the only bike maker to have successfully exhausted it's BS4 inventory before the March 31, 2020, deadline. The company has transitioned almost all of its models to the BS6 emission norms, barring the 500 cc bikes that have been discontinued and the Thunderbird 350 that gets a replacement.
