Discover our motorcycle tours in India

If you’re passionate about bike riding tours and discovering new places, we have plenty of India motorcycle tours to choose from. Come and discover this vast country and its different regions with us on a Royal Enfield. This classic bike is perfect for vintage motorcycle tours in India. The Royal Enfield provides the perfect combination of the pleasure of riding and neo-retro style. And you don’t even have to think about buying a Royal Enfield in India, we take care of everything and offer recent 500cc models. Thanks to our travel agency in New Delhi, you can set off on an unforgettable road trip in India on one of our bikes. Giving you a real sense of freedom, a motorbike lets you experience India differently.

Taking a motorcycle tour in India is the best way to get away from the beaten tourist track. The old Enfield is a nod to local culture. Attracting locals’ attention, this Indian motorbike blends into the crowds and lets you take the pulse of the country. Safety is our number one priority during your motorcycle tour. An English-speaking tour leader and a specialist Royal Enfield mechanic will accompany all the motorcycle tours. They know all of our itineraries like the back of their hands and understand the rules of the road, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. A support vehicle will always be close behind, carrying luggage and useful spare parts in case of any mechanical problems. Our motorcycle tour experts are always at hand if you have any questions.

When to set off on your motorcycle tour in India?

Weather and climate are important factors to consider when planning bike trips in India. Generally, the best season to travel to India is between October and April, when it is drier. Summer (June to September) is a perfect time for Himalaya motorcycle tours to Ladakh. Perched atop the Tibetan plateaux, the Himalayas protect this region from the monsoon weather. It is usually dry with pleasant temperatures during this summer period but the high-altitude peaks are closed and weather conditions are extreme during winter. We recommend October-November and February-March to visit Rajasthan. South India is perfect from December to March. If it’s the Himalayan foothills you’re after, we recommend visiting in April-May and September-October. To discover the country, we encourage you to browse the National Portal of India online.

The Vintage Rides team

Our multicultural team is based in the UK, France and India. We often attend motorcycle events in the UK, so do not hesitate to come and say hello to our UK country manager Suzie, at any motorbike fairs and chat to us about your Royal Enfield tour ideas. In New Delhi, our India motorcycle tour experts will meet you during your motorcycle trip. A member of the English-speaking team will meet you at New Delhi airport.

Something for everyone

We have a range of formulas in the top destinations in India, depending on your preferences and riding experience. Our Himalayan Adventure Tours are ideal for seasoned bikers wanting to push themselves to the limit. We also have more accessible motorcycle tours leaving from Leh. In other regions of India, like Rajasthan or Madhya Pradesh, we recommend our Luxury Tours so you can perfectly combine the pleasure of riding with R and R. The pace is more chilled, you can spend some hours on the road and the rest of the day relaxing in comfortable accommodation, so if you are travelling with your partner, this is the tour for you. Any Indian region is great for a Motorcycle Ramble, so you can combine the joys of exploring, meeting locals and cultural excursions with riding for around 5-6 hours a day.

Why choose a group motorcycle tour?

We have some exceptional motorcycle tours in India, which you can enjoy in a small group or with the made-to-measure option. With a shared passion, you all set off on what is more than just a motorcycle tour, but the time of your life. Vintage Rides tours are more affordable when you opt to travel with a group as you share all the fixed costs with the other group members. If you join a group as a solo traveller, you’ll share a twin room with another traveller of the same sex unless you opt to pay a single room supplement. If you prefer, you can create your own group and take to the Indian roads whenever you want. A group of 4, 6, 8 or even 12 friends, a motorcycle tour with the family, a biker honeymoon for newly-weds: tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll plan you a tailor-made trip.

When travelling in India, you can choose from several destinations.

Motorcycle tours in Ladakh

Do Himalaya motorcycle tours interest you? We have several Himalayan motorcycle tours on offer. Depending on your riding experience, you can opt for guided or more accessible bike riding tours. Our Trans-Himalayan tour is a legendary experience for bikers who want to push themselves to the limit. It’s an extreme expedition on the Manali-Leh highway to reach the roof of the world by motorcycle. Others opt for a Motorbike Ramble from Leh, the capital of Ladakh, and take our Oases and Peaks at the World’s End tour. Whichever you choose, you’ll be blown away by Ladakh’s moonlike landscapes. The highlight? Crossing the highest of passes, the Khardung-La. Known as Little Tibet, Leh welcomes throngs of visitors every summer. Perched at an altitude of 3,500 m, it lies at the crossroads of ancient trade routes between India, Tibet and Afghanistan. Tibetan Buddhism is prominent as can be seen by the many Buddhist monasteries in the Indus Valley. After some of the best riding, why not try your hand at rafting down the Zanskar River?

Motorcycle tours in Uttarkhand

We offer motorcycle tourism across the Himalayan foothills in the wild region of Uttarakhand, where the river Ganges rises. This destination gives visitors the chance to delve into an authentic, rural region in the heart of sacred India. Our Routes of Hinduism tour is a blend of spirituality with visits to monasteries and views to the high Himalayan peaks. Some of the highlights are stopping at India’s yoga capital, the small, relaxed city, Rishikesh and witnessing the daily religious ceremonies on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city Haridwar.

Motorcycle tours in Rajasthan

Our India motorcycle tours in Rajasthan are undoubtedly the most emblematic at Vintage Rides as they cover the top things to do in India. The New Land of the Maharajas is an original tour that takes you to discover this extremely charming Indian region. Pass through historic cities Jaipur, Pushkar, Jodhpur and Udaipur, criss-cross the beautiful roads of the Aravalli and make acquaintances with locals in the Indian countryside. The best part is that you get to stay in the magnificent forts and palaces that have been renovated and restored as boutique hotels.

Motorcycle tours in South India

The best bike trips in South India explore Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Just imagine the local lifestyle, tropical climate, sun, ocean and coconut trees, your motorcycle tour in South India seems like a real holiday! On The Spices Route, you delve deeper into the lush nature amidst the Keralan mountains, the plantations and spice gardens. What’s more, you can enjoy some time to relax as you cruise the backwaters on a traditional houseboat. We also offer another tour called The Big Crossing that sets off from Fort Kochi to Kerala, and takes you to the former French colonial city Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu. En route, enjoy the visit of the famous Madurai temples, some of the most beautiful in the country.

Other motorcycle tours

And last but not least, we can highly recommend two motorcycle tours of India’s lesser-known regions: Madhya Pradesh and Odisha. Our Luxury Tour of Madhya Pradesh is perfect for soaking up the scenery and enjoying the wildlife and nature of the area. The Land of the Forefathers takes you to Odisha, into the heart of rural India, an unspoilt area that remains authentic.
