Our Motorcycles

We still have the Classic Royal Enfield 500 in our Indian based fleet and it provides a truly authentic Himalayan riding experience as much of this part of the world was explored and settled on these venerable machines. That said, we also have, and highly recommend, the Royal Enfield Himalayan. It's a light weight adventure type motorcycle. We have made it mandatory for the high mountain conditions of Nepal because of its longer travel suspension and for your comfort and safety. As of 2019 those of you coming to Mongolia will have the choice of the Himalayan or the KTM. However, due to performance and riding style differences each trip must be all of one or the other model. We can't mix these very different bikes in one group and we recommend the barky, wheelie prone, KTM 450 only for experienced dirt groups.

Here's Team Admin Lauren with the Classic Bullet 500

Here's the Himalayan with the Land Rover Support Vehicle (It carries your gear so you can focus on riding, not packing and un-packing the bike. Bags are delivered to you each night by our team)
