Custom Workshop & Bike Tips
What makes the Royal Enfield the perfect motorcycle for a two-wheeled road trip?


Originally British, the Royal Enfield is now an Indian icon. Rustic yet elegant, this classic bike is the perfect travelling companion for a motorbike tour. Why?

<h2>Timeless style</h2>

From veteran riders to novices, everyone knows that the Royal Enfield's style cannot be reckoned with. As one of the oldest motorcycle makes, its post-war design makes it stand out. Every detail is meticulously crafted, from tanks and headlights to paintwork colour and saddles, lending the bikes incredible charm and personality. The make's vintage icon is the Bullet 500: a classic, retro look with no frills that always leaves a lasting impression.

A motorbike made for adventure

Originally used by the army, the Royal Enfield needed to be light, high performing, robust and trusty. And almost nothing has changed today. Equipped with its famous single-cylinder engine, it may not be the most powerful make, but is perfect for 1000-mile motorcycle tours and taking in the scenery along the way. This machine has been proving itself for more than 50 years over hills, rough tracks and rocky paths during motorcycle tours. What's more, with accessible mechanics that are easily repairable, this bike is perfect for travelling anywhere in the world.
