The 15th edition of Royal Enfield’s Himalayan Odyssey was flagged off on July 9, 2018 from one of the most recognizable pieces of architecture in the country, India gate. Synonymous with adventure, the Himalayan Odyssey is quite popular among the motorists in India. The motoring event witnessed around 60 enthusiasts including 10 women riders, participating in the event. These 60 riders will take on some of the roughest terrains and highest mountain passes in the world, covering a distance of over 2200 km in 18 days on their Royal Enfield motorcycles. The contingent was flagged off by Mr. Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield. As a long standing tradition, the lamas chanted prayers and blessed the riders at the flag-off ceremony held at India Gate.

Addressing the riders at the flag-off ceremony, Mr. Rudratej Singh, President Royal Enfield said, “Himalayan Odyssey is a testimony of Royal Enfield, which has for over 15 years been encouraging riders to do more with their motorcycles. The ride is symbolic of motivating others to make motorcycling a way of life. We are certain that the riders who have embarked on this journey ultimately come back as explorers because we are not just about motorcycles but pure motorcycling and exploration.”

At this year’s event, participants from across the nook and corners of the country congregated to be a part of this adventurous and exciting journey. Enthusiasts from cities like Chennai, Erode, New Delhi, Bangalore, Kochi as well as overseas locations like Dubai and Barcelona, came to try their luck.

Both the rides, Himalayan Odyssey and Himalayan Odyssey Women, was flagged off from Delhi together, albeit they will take different ride routes before finally converging at Leh.
