Leading Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Royal Enfield’s Tour of Bhutan ride will start in Siliguri on 10 October. The fourth edition of the Tour of Bhutan will see 30 riders travelling nearly 1,500 km in 12 days.
After being flagged off in Siliguri, the Tour of Bhutan convoy will travel through tourist destinations such as Darjeeling, Phuntsholing, Paro, Thimphu, Phobjikha, Bumthang, Trongsa and Gelephu.
The route map indicates the terrain is challenging enough for the riders to get a dose of off-roading. The ride will pass through mountain roads, ghat sections, slushy off-road trails, water crossings, gravel tracks and forests.
The oldest motorcycle company in continuous production, Royal Enfield, made its first motorcycle in 1901. A division of Eicher Motors Limited, Royal Enfield is in forefront in organising planned rides for its customers. Apart from the Tour of Bhutan, the Chennai-based manufacturer conducts international rides to Nepal and Tibet.
