Two Royal Enfiled Himalayan motorcycles managed to overcome the harsh weather and terrain and successfully occupied the South Pole.
Santos Vijay Kumar and Dean Coxon are two drivers who managed to perform this extremely demanding endeavor. The two began their journey on two modified Himalayan models from the Novolazarevskaya Research Station in Antarctica.
It took them nine days to cover a distance of 3,200 kilometers, and before they reached their goal, they successfully faced temperatures of -30 to -25 degrees Celsius.
In addition to low temperatures, it was necessary to cope with a wind speed of 60 km / h. The duo had to change course several times, but still managed to reach the South Pole on December 16, together with the support crew.
To make the ride possible, two Himalayan two-wheelers underwent certain modifications. Kumar and Coxon also drove on a compacted snow track from the Ross Ice Belt to the South Pole, in an effort to reduce resistance and limit emissions.
Two motorcycles are still in Antarctica at the moment.
