The Dakar Rally is a grueling off-road endurance race that tests the integrity of a participating human body and the machine in the most extreme manner possible. Most owners in India have been privately and unconsciously testing their Royal Enfields in similar conditions around the mighty Himalayas. But now, if you’d like to experience what it’s like to ride a thumper on the tracks of the Dakar, there is a solution. Mono 500, a travel agency based in Argentina will put you on the saddle of a Royal Enfield Classic 500 and take you on a 13 day trip on the Dakar rally tracks.

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you may also ask them to chart out a special itinerary for you, where the agency advises and accompanies you from the first call until your arrival. If you ride a Royal Enfield Classic here and like the idea of feeling at home no matter where you go, this tour will suit you just fine. And if you’re a big fan of what they say goes like a Bullet, here’s what the travel company has to say about the bike, “With its retro look, purring sound, ease of handling and legendary robustness, Royal Enfield has known how to go through periods and fashions since its inception at the turn of the century. This single-cylinder 500cc is the only motorcycle still assembled by hand, which gives it an unparalleled authenticity and a legendary character. Lightweight, handy and suitable for all terrain, the beautiful Royal Enfield is without a doubt our best ally to walk the high-altitude tracks and steep paths.”
