Royal Enfield has unveiled a range of riding gears which are suitable for adventure touring. The Himalayan motorcycle is engineered to traverse the challenging terrains of the Himalayas and such terrains definitely warrant tough riding paraphernalia.

The riding gears can be purchased at Royal Enfield online store or at its dealerships. The Darcha 4 Season Jacket is priced at INR 21,000 while the matching trousers retail for INR 13,500. The gloves would set you back by INR 5,499. The Kaza jacket and trousers are priced at INR 14,000 and INR 11,000 respectively.
