Royal Enfield opens Leh service centre

Indian bikemaker Royal Enfield, which organises rallies in the Himalayas, has opened its service centre in Leh, the capital of Ladakh region in Jammu & Kashmir.

The centre has been set up to service several Royal Enfield riders who drive across the Himalayan region during the summer months. Hundreds of bikers ride through the high-altitude district every summer, enjoying the beauty of the region.

“For over 60 years, the Himalayas have been traversed by Royal Enfield riders, and today we have come to call Ladakh our spiritual home,” said a post in the company’s Facebook page. “To support these adventurous riders and explorers better, we are proud to open our first-ever service centre at Leh.”

Venture Third Pole, the service centre, is located along the Leh-Manali highway, at an altitude of nearly 12,000 ft.

The company recently launched the Royal Enfield Himalayan, an adventure tourer.
