EMBARKING ON A NEW JOURNEY, ROYAL ENFIELD HAS INTRODUCED HIMALAYAN ODYSSEY - WOMEN (HO-W), A WOMEN’S ONLY EDITION OF THE MARQUEE’S ADVENTUROUS RIDE.
Royal Enfield flagged off the 2016 edition of Himalayan Odyssey on July 9 from Delhi’s most iconic landmark, India Gate. The 13th edition of the ride features the debut of Himalayan Odyssey - Women (HO-W), which is a women’s only ride. A batch of 20 women riders are participating in the ride along with 83 men riders, however, they are taking different routes to Leh, Ladakh. Before converging at the final destination, both the groups will cover around 2500 kilometres in a span of 15 days.
Flagging off more than 100 thumping Royal Enfield motorcycles, Shaji Koshy, senior vice president - sales, services and spares, Royal Enfield said, “For over six decades, Royal Enfield has been the motorcycle of choice for all those who have wanted to ride to the mountains. The Himalayan Odyssey has championed leisure motorcycling in the way it has initiated scores of people to ride to Ladakh. With each passing year, a new set of riders are initiated into this extraordinary expedition. This year, we have introduced the Himalayan Odyssey- Women, an exclusive all women’s ride that promises to be the ultimate motorcycling adventure for all women who ride a Royal Enfield. We have received an encouraging response towards this and we hope this ride becomes an inspiration for many more women to take up motorcycling in India.”
Staying true to its resolve, Himalayan Odyssey - Women will have an all women crew comprising of service staff, technicians and doctors, supporting and assisting the riders throughout the journey. The participants will ride through three mountain ranges and six passes as they make their way to Khardung La, one of the highest motorable roads in the world, situated at an altitude of 18, 380 feet.
Royal Enfield has been organising the Himalayan Odyssey since 2003 and it leads the riders through some of the most treacherous of terrain and weather conditions. It changes from scorching hot to icy cold as they make their way to the picturesque regions of the Himalayas passing through Narkanda, Sarchu, Jispa and Leh, all over the course of a gruelling and challenging 15 days.
