  • We have always been impressed with the simple and rugged design of the Royal Enfield Himalayan. The new colours make it look more delectable

  • You may definitely go for the Royal Enfield Himalayan. It was the motorcycle that kick-started the affordable adventure touring genre in India in 2016. Despite the arrival of new rivals, it continues to outshine them as an all-rounder. The Himalayan certainly isn’t flawless or entirely satisfactory in any singular aspect, but it makes up for these gaps by painting a picture of opportunity, inciting you to travel and explore on a whim. For that alone, it is and will continue to be relevant, even when the competition arrives in wholesomeness. Not only it offers great ergonomics for touring or standing and riding, it also offers brilliant off-roading credentials like long-travel suspension, spoke rims and tall ground clearance.

G 310 GS User Reviews
  • 5.0

    1. Superb Ergonomics. Apt for me (my height is 6ft). But definitely need an extender for Long Rides since the Wind shield will be shorter for people like me. 2. Definitely value for money. Since your servicing will be within a span of 6 months.(Excluding the first).3. In 1st Gear, I picked up a speed of 40. So I guess I will surely achieve a speed of 90-100 KMPH without any hiccups.4. Luggage friendly. You don't have to worry about basic luggage's which you may carry for occasional rides. ( Reach today and get back tomorrow types)I will definitely recommend Himalayan for those who wants some fresh air on weekends.

    Had to change a tire because of a manufacturing defect which even the company didn't pay for.Doubt the quality assurance department of royal enfield.Engine malfunctioned twice within 5 months of purchase for which service center charged a lot.The parts and the services provided by the royal enfield is of low quality.I dreamt of going to ladakh on this bike but it can't withstand the roads of delhi.

  • 5.0

    It's a beautiful bike. Simple, reliable, and powerful enough. Off roading in the trails, the bike destroys obstacles and moves forward with at most ease. It does struggle sometimes in heavy off roads but nonetheless clears it without any niggles. Brilliant bike, hats off to Royal Enfield.

  • 5.0

    Compared to the bs4 avatar, The new bs6 royal enfield himalayan is 5kgs heavier.However, The bike is still as easy to ride as it was before.Because of the low seat height controlling the bike is also not a hassle, Whether it be highways or off-road.I love my himalayan very much.
