Riding to Himalayas? RE Opens 2 Service Centres On the Way…

RE service centres near Leh will give bikers authorised service and spare part facilities on the way (or while returns)….

With the ever increasing motorcycling culture in India, Royal Enfield is right in believing that there has been an increase in the number of riders riding to the Himalayas from various parts of the country. They went onto launch the Himalayan which is a more ideal bike – an adventure tourer, for such excursions.

In a latest, they have introduced two new authorised service centres in Kaza and Keylong. This will directly be of immense use to all the thousands of Royal Enfield riders riding across to Leh and other areas. So, now if you require a part for your broken down motorcycle, you can get it nearer or on the way.

Apart from these, RE says they also have dealerships in remote areas of Jammu & Kashmir, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and others. The strategy is to offer assistance (and hence improve business) to bikers at such locations where finding service and spare parts is generally difficult.

On this development, Mr Shaji Koshy, Head of India+ Business in the company said,

The Himalayas has been the spiritual home to Royal Enfield, and for over 60 years, riding enthusiasts have traversed these mountains on our motorcycles. Over the last few years, we have seen an increase in the number of people riding to the Himalayas on Royal Enfields. With the expansion of our service network in Himachal Pradesh at Kaza and Keylong, we have ensured that riders get adequate support even at high altitudes and challenging terrains. With places like Leh, Ladakh, Lahaul & Spiti getting featured on every rider’s bucket list, these service centres will cater to riders travelling to Leh region from any of the two routes – via Manali or Shimla.
