Generations of riders have been drawn to the adventure of motorcycling, and that spirit will be full display on July 6-8, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, during 2018 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Royal Enfield.
As one of the world’s oldest motorcycle brands with a history that traces the most remote parts of the globe, Royal Enfield motorcycles capture the intrepid qualities of two-wheeled exploration. The brand’s latest model, the Royal Enfield Himalayan, is the culmination of 116 years of history summed up by the model’s “Built for All Roads, Built for No Roads” purpose.
