Riding a Royal Enfield Himalayan is a one of a kind experience. Boasting no-nonsense looks, a little rough around the edges but purposeful in every way, the Royal Enfield is a punchy, torquey machine designed to take on any road conditions, any terrain, and any altitude. Our Royal Enfield motorcycle tours are designed to take you off the beaten path and deep into the Himalayan backcountry exploring some of India’s most awe-inspiring landscapes, and this is the bike to do it, even if you haven’t ridden roads and terrain like that before.
The single-cylinder thumper breaks all stereotypes, and it’s not the bike that dictates the adventure – it’s the rider. With a 400cc engine that delivers consistent torque, a minimalistic design, and a low seat, you simply point the front wheel, and the bike will take you anywhere whether it’s a series of hairpins and tight corners, busy town traffic, or a rough section of the road. The no-ABS, no-nonsense approach is what makes the Royal Enfield Himalayan a perfect bike for motorcycle adventures in India and beyond.
As the name suggests, the best Royal Enfield motorcycle tours are in the Himalayas. India and Nepal are the two most iconic Royal Enfield destinations: simply put, the Himalayas Mountains are the bike’s natural habitat. Beloved by local adventure riders and travellers alike, the Himalayas provide the perfect playground for Royal Enfield motorcycle tours with countless scenic roads, breath-taking mountain landscapes, adrenaline-inducing twisties, and incredible cultural experiences along the way. Going on our Royal Enfield tours, expect high-altitude mountain passes, jaw-dropping views of the snow-capped Himalayas, steep and narrow roads, and a no-frills, full-on adventure you’ll never forget.
There’s just something about the Royal Enfield Himalayan that’s part nostalgic, part adventure-inspiring, and part utilitarian. Our Royal Enfield motorcycle tours are more of a two-wheeled expedition rather than a cruisey ride, and the bikes are part of the package as much as the roads and the scenery. Riding in the Himalayas, you need to always expect the unexpected, but the Royal Enfield is a bike that will inspire confidence no matter where the journey takes you. Rugged looks and the “function-over-form” design aside, Royal Enfield is a forgiving, trusty machine that’s easy to get used to from day one. Whether you’re weaving in and out of traffic, leaning into corners, manoeuvring in tight spaces, or tackling a bumpy section, the Royal Enfield is up for the task. Motorcycle tours in the Himalayas, especially if it’s your first time traveling outside the Western world, are an assault on all the senses, and the Royal Enfield is the perfect bike to help you get into the flow fast and start riding like a local in no time.
Forget highways and long hauls on straight stretches: Royal Enfield motorcycle tours are all about those mountain roads twisting and turning with every scenic mile. The Himalayas Mountains are among the world’s most sought-after adventure destinations because of the insane roads and passes you’ll be riding. Narrow, two-lane roads hugging mountain faces and skirting cliff edges, steep climbs, some of the highest motorable passes on the planet, and rough sections leading into the secluded Himalayan valleys and gorges are all on the menu. Be careful with that throttle, though: while most of the Himalayan roads offer plenty of good-looking corners and fun sweepers, there may be people, domestic animals, and slow-moving tuk tuks appearing from nowhere, so take it easy and enjoy the views!
Nothing inspires the sense of freedom and adventure as much as the thought of riding the Himalayas on a Royal Enfield. All our Himalayan tours are carefully planned out and well-prepared, but riding India and Nepal, there’s never a dull moment: varying altitude and weather, ever-changing road conditions, and diverse scenery means no two days on your Royal Enfield motorcycle tour will be the same. Prepare for a true expedition as you’ll be traveling some of the most rugged mountain ranges in the world, tackling a plethora of adrenaline-inducing roads, and fully immersing yourself in the Himalayan culture every step of the way.
The majestic Himalayas Mountains are often dubbed the Roof of the World, and the riding here does feel like you’ve entered a different sphere altogether. Snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, high-altitude plateaus and cold deserts, stunning valleys and narrow mountain passes revealing spectacular views promise scenery that’s simply out of this world. To add to the mind-blowing vistas, Himalayan landscapes are dotted with tiny mountain villages and towns, ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples perched atop cliffs and hills and colourful prayer flags fluttering in the wind marking holy Buddhist sites here and there. Even for well-traveled riders, few places in the world can prepare you for the full effect of the Himalayan scenery that awaits on our Royal Enfield motorcycle tours.
All our tours are designed to immerse you in the local ways of life as much as possible, but when it comes to Royal Enfield expeditions, the cultural experiences will leave you speechless. Northern India and Nepal are much closer to the Tibetan culture rather than the colourful chaos of Delhi, and riding here, it feels like you’re visiting a truly special place. Don’t be surprised to see traditional robe-clad Buddhist monks strolling casually along the town streets, meeting curious and friendly locals always eager for a chat, and sample mouth-watering local cuisine along the way. The Himalayas host a myriad of ancient Buddhist, Indian, Tibetan, and Nepalese cultures with traditions going millennia-deep, and going on a Royal Enfield motorcycle tour, you’ll get a glimpse into a different, more colourful, and much older world that’s rapidly disappearing in the West.
