Any info on purchase/rental, garages, mechanics, for Enfield in Southern India?

In Chennai, Bangalore, Pondichery, or anywhere in Tamil Nadu or Kerala.

Hi,
I guess less people makes it that far south and I’m finding difficult to get info for the south of India.
I want to hire/purchase an Enfield to tour the south.
Any idea about what prices to expect?
Higher,? Lower? Than in Delhi or Mumbai.
Does any one know some reputable dealers, garages, mechanics in Chennai/ Madras / Bangalore, Kerala?
Some helpful contacts or pointers?

Thanks a lot.
Fernando

Hmmm, now thats an interesting question. Coming to think of it, i havent seen any bullet rental advert from south india on any boards. Though i am sure, there are plenty or mechanics there. South india has a good majority of bullet riders. You may wanna get in touch with madras bulls club to know more.
