Our fleet of Royal Enfield’s are all 500cc Bullets and the newly launched Classic Desert Storms. We have updated some of the features on the bikes to make them more suitable for the distances and terrain that we travel on the tours.
The famous Royal Enfield Company originally manufactured the Bullet with the logo ‘made like a gun, goes like a Bullet’. The motorbikes have been used in both world wars and were also shipped out to the USA where they became known as Indian Motorcycles.
Royal Enfield did not just manufacture motorcycles; indeed the English engineering company portrayed a strong lineage of necessity beyond boundaries of ordinary realms. Driven by sheer necessity and manufactured with the state-of-the-art engineering capabilities, Enfield was initially associated with military requirements. In its earlier days, the company built lawnmowers, bicycles and even rifle parts for many arms factories.
Since the 1950’s the motorbikes have been made in Chennai, India and the Bullet has kept the same design as it had when it was built in the UK.
