Buying an Enfield in India

Is it possible to buy an Enfield in India, then sell it after the travels? I know people rent them but I have heard you can purchase them and then sell them as well. Any advice would be great.

Incredible India

Hello,
Yes is possible to buy and sell after your trip! But get ready to loos some money around 6000 to 4000 minimum but all is possible in India.

If you need some help to buy or rent in south India (Bangalore) i will be here.

I am a 31 year old French expat living and working in Bangalore.
If you require some help to rent or buy a Royal Enfield in Bangalore for your next bike trip in South India it would be my pleasure to help you. Having lived here in Bangalore for the last 3 years I have a rich network of shops and mechanics. I can also provide you with local information such as road aspects, weather, addresses of nice little hotels and home stays. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Thanks for the information. I am looking to buy a used motorcycle, I here you can find some motos for around 1000 to 800, maybe not in the best condition but if there are a lot of mechanics experienced with the bike I would feel a little better about buying it used. Dont have enough money to spend 8000, plus that doenst seems like the trip I would like to do anyway, in it for the adventure, ya know? Thanks for being a contact, looking forward to making it to India.

Good Budget

Good Morning,
IF you talking about 800 to 1000 US $ your budget is very good to buy a Royal Enfield or any bike in very good condition.
If you are in South India (Bangalore) send a message.

Have nice trip and Happy Xmas.
