Royal Enfield has added new riding gear to its portfolio, and the company recently sent their premium jacket, the Khardung La V2 to Bikewale for a review. While the Khardung La V2 is an all-weather touring jacket, we will use it in a variety of riding conditions (city and highway) to test factors such as practicality and comfort. I especially plan to use it for those long, weekend rides on the Royal Enfield Himalayan that we have in our garage. The combination is almost poetic, isn’t it?
Before we talk about the details, let us give you a perspective about the company’s new riding jackets, and where does the Khardung La V2 sit in the portfolio. The Khardung La V2 is currently the second most premium riding jacket in Royal Enfield’s range, sitting just under the Nirvik. It has been priced at Rs 12,950, and the company has justified that tag with a commendable quality and premium armour. More on that in the later part of this introduction report. First let us tell you why you should buy this jacket.
