    It offers everything 

    390 Adventure is for everything like it is compact for beginner friendly, capable for open roads, great for proper long rides adventures and its engine is excellent for touring but the seat height is high that is not suitable for all buyers. On road performance of this bike is just incredible and the price is very well for what it offers but is not that good for off roader. The highway performance is excellent but the seat is not very comfortable for long rides.

    drive to the zenith 

    It is a versatile bike that bridges the gap between street bikes and adventure bikes. It offers good performance on the road, with the capability to tackle light off-road adventures. While exact mileage figures might vary depending on riding style i ride , but the estimated mileage 30kmpl which is very low .

    Hard suspension 

    The 390 adv while having a hard suspension still has decent dampening.It is a tall but light bike but may not suit short riders.While the dukes and rc may not be comfortable for larger riders with a tummy or who are taller this bike will keep such riders comfortable.Pros - good power & features (mtc, Slipper clutch, Cornering abs, Led lights and display)- less weight- strong and can take a bashing- decent service cost- ktm experiences and app- head turner in traffic- good breaking power compared to other adv's (but may be squeaky)cons - - more fuel hungry than dominar or himalyan in similar segment.-turn by turn navigation needs 3rd party app (not official ktm app)-low end torque is not great although improved on 2022 model-long waiting time for delivery (parts availability of fiber parts)-heating and perpetual feeling of the fan being on for cooling.- not available with spokes for serious offroaders(not really a con as those owning a single bike will likely be on road for most of their life.Alloys are good for mild off-roading and provides tubeless tires.)- wind buffeting due to short windscreen(aftermarket long ones available)- no ktm power parts available in indiaall in all still worth it as it is the best bike in less than 5l category.Above this you only have 2nd hand super bikes/or pay a lot more for a new superbike.

    when style meets class 

    Strength defines Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 which is elegant in looks. There are several features that are there in this model, making it stand apart from the rest models. It has comfortable seats and aesthetic exterior looks. Exterior wise it is tough, classy and a head turner on roads. The price ranges from affordable numbers. But it's a worthy investment. I would highly recommend this to all.

    End torque 

    Here are my thoughts on the upcoming royal enfield himalayan 450 motorcycle: overall features and stylingfrom what i've seen so far, The himalayan 450 retains the rugged, Adventurous styling of the current himalayan 411 but with some nice upgrades.The exposed frame and off-road oriented design are still there, But the 450 adds some sharper lines and a more muscular fuel tank for a modern look.Some key features include switchable abs, A tripper navigation pod, And an lcd display with turn-by-turn navigation.These are great features for an adventure touring bike.The styling strikes a good balance between rugged and refined.Expectationsi'm expecting the 450cc engine to provide a noticeable power bump over the 411cc motor in the current himalayan - perhaps around 30hp.This should make cruising at highway speeds more relaxed while still delivering excellent low-end torque for off-road riding.The weight is also reportedly lower, Which should improve handling.Overall, The 450 looks like a nicely improved evolution of the proven himalayan platform.My expectations are high for a more powerful, Lighter and feature-rich middleweight adventure tourer.Likelihood of purchasei'd say there's a good chance i'll seriously consider purchasing the himalayan 450 when it becomes available.It hits a real sweet spot in terms of power, Capability and price.The addition of navigation, Abs and other features make it an even more well-rounded package.As an experienced adventure rider currently without a middleweight tourer in my garage, The royal enfield ticks a lot of boxes for my needs and budget.Unless reviews reveal any major flaws, I could see myself purchasing a himalayan 450 in the future as my main adventure touring motorcycle.It looks like an excellent value proposition in the segment.

    Awesome Bike 

    The Enfield Himalayan is an outstanding bike, known for its light and easy-to-ride nature. The convenience of the self-starter eliminates the need for kick-starting, and the effective side stand makes parking effortless. The digital central console is user-friendly and easy to read. While designed primarily for off-road applications, its ride handling on city roads is commendable. The bike's rugged and distinctive appearance adds to its appeal, and the engine springs to life effortlessly with the self-start button. Smooth and easy gear shifts enhance the overall riding experience. The Himalayan is not only easy to handle but also versatile, suitable for both city commuting and off-road adventures. Although yet to be taken on the highway for off-road travel, it stands out as a great bike that excels in both urban and adventurous settings.Royal Enfield has successfully delivered a winner in this segment, offering an affordable option that is truly impressive. A potential owner myself, I am drawn to its overall greatness.
