Over the course of last few months, Royal Enfield has launched a slew of digital campaigns in order to engage its digital community and keep motorcycling spirits high.

Speaking to HT Auto, Shubranshu Singh, Global Head, Marketing at Royal Enfield said that company has used the last several months of lockdown to reach out to its biking community, fans and social media followers to engage them in sharing their biking experiences, trip memories and basically 'all things motorcycling', using digital as a medium.

"Naturally everybody is missing opportunities to ride, so staying true to the brand that we are, we tried to recreate that flavour in their life and that's the platform that we've been working on," Singh told HT Auto.
