This is the Himalayan – the first adventure motorcycle ever built by an Indian company and that’s Royal Enfield. It’s being launched at a time when anyone and everyone in our country who has a bike now aspires to go on an adventure.

Built from ground up, the Himalayan, from Royal Enfield, has been made to attract this growing breed of young Indian buyers to the iconic brand.
