The riders covered 3,200 km in extreme weather to reach the South Pole on two modified Himalayans.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan has conquered the South Pole. Riders Santhosh Vijay Kumar and Dean Coxson reached the geographic South Pole on December 16, 2021.
The team set off from Cape Town, South Africa and reached Novo in Antarctica for four days of acclimatization. While at Novo, the team also loaded supplies and checked their equipment and motorcycles.
Over the next 9 days, the team covered 3,200 km in extreme weather conditions. Temperatures on the Ross Ice Shelf dipped to -30 degrees as the team was battered with 60 km/h winds. The unpredictable weather forced the team to start their ride from 87-degree South instead of 86-degree South.
Two modified Royal Enfield Himalayan motorcycles were used for the expedition.
