Himalayan Moto Tour consists entirely of new Royal Enfield Classic 500 EFI with electric starters, 5-speed gearboxes and gearshifts on the left. The Enfield is still India's luxury big bike and a favorite toy of the young and wild. The Royal Enfield Bullet is a dream machine. It is a soul mate and companion; farmers to office executives, tradesmen to diplomats and armed forces’ personnel, all have their own reasons for owning a Royal Enfield. This mean machine brings with it the 1950's vintage charm & gives you the "Retro Bullet feel". Power is up from about 22bhp to a more useful 27bhp, and because the construction is modern, you can make full use of the bike for long periods.
Since 1992, Enfield has once again been building the more powerful 500cc engines, and we use them exclusively for our touring. Motorcycle touring has always been a strange combination as a means to an end, and an end in itself; it is an unbeatable way to experience someplace new, and it is an experience in itself. This is what powers the latest Bullet, a bike that marks a return to Enfield's core appeal in its export markets in the past two or three decades: classic biking on a budget. This is a revival after all. The old Bullet was being killed off by modern regulations, and this new one brings all the charm and character back, as well as the authenticity of following on directly and being made in the same factory, by the same workers. Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle manufacturer in the world that is still in business and has a history of uninterrupted trading. The Royal Enfield Bullet is the longest running model in constant production. Although the Royal Enfield built its name in Britain, today it is Royal Enfield India that manufactures the motorcycle.
