Royal Enfield has been synonymous with Indian motorcycle touring and despite being a much smaller company than most other motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield has been a pioneer in organizing factory backed motorcycle tours to explore the magnificence of incredible India.
While Royal Enfield has also been conducting an annual motorcycle tour to Nepal, it is the first time that the motorcycle maker is heading to Bhutan, the land which literally worships the phallus. Fast fact apart, registrations for the Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan 2012 are now open.
Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan 2012
The 2012 Royal Enfield is the first ever factory backed motorcycle tour, which flanks India’s North Eastern border. The Tour of Bhutan will take riders across visually enchanting landscapes, from the tea gardens of Bagdogra to the quaint and narrow streets of Sikkim before moving on to Bhutan’s excellent roads and stunning topography. The tour will take you through three Indian states, West Bengal, Sikkim and Assam while Bhutan is the foreign country that this tour will take you on. The Tour of Bhutan 2012 will finally culminate at Guwahati, which is the capital of Assam.
If someone loves the twisties, Bhutan will be one place never to miss riding in as the country offers a superb road surface for truly enjoyable mountain road riding. The tour will begin on the 5th of May, 2012, and will end on the 15th of May, 2012.
You will need to have your own Royal Enfield motorcycle to participate in this tour. The price of the tour is INR 22,500 payable to Royal Enfield at the time of registration and this includes accommodation and breakfast.
Meanwhile, here’s the complete route of the nearly 1,600 Km Tour of Bhutan spread across 10 riding days.
