The Royal Enfield Classic which caught fire belonged to one Ravichandra, who is said to have ridden 387 km from Mysore to reach the Nettikanti Anjaneya Swamy temple in the Guntakal Mandal after buying the new vehicle. The motorcycle is said to have caught fire immediately after the owner entered the temple to offer his prayers. Meanwhile, the people standing nearby were shocked as the motorcycle got engulfed in flames and ended up exploding with a huge bang.
The onlookers doused the fire by pouring water on the motorcycle. The reason for the brand new Royal Enfield Classic catching fire is yet to be ascertained. Fortunately, there have been no loss of life or injury in this mishap. This is surely among rare incidents of a Royal Enfield model catching fire for no apparent reason. However, this is the second such incident in the country of a two-wheeler catching fire.
