Here at Blazing Trails we run a fleet of late-model, 500cc Royal Enfield Bullets for most tours in India and Burma. The 400cc Enfield Himalayan adventure bike is used on our high-altitude routes in Ladakh.
Power delivery is ‘friendly’ on both models, with peak torque being made at low revs. This makes the Enfield Bullet ideal for relaxed touring in ‘cruise mode’. Enfields are also very tough (a necessary trait on the back roads we like to travel), comfortable and, with a low centre of gravity, are very easy to handle. These bikes are maintained by our own mechanics, who join us on tour to take care of day-to-day maintenance.
In Myanmar, we require a £600 damage deposit.
