Royal Enfield Himalayan Latest Updates
After updating the Classic 350 to meet the BS6 emission norms, the BS6-compliant version of the Royal Enfield Himalayan has begun reaching dealerships across the country. The new Himalayan will get the three new colours that were seen at EICMA 2019. Updates to the motorcycle include a new cat-con, switchable ABS, and hazard toggle switch. The price hike is expected to be around Rs 6,000-Rs 8,000. For more details on the Himalayan BS6, check out this story.
The last update which the Royal Enfield Himalayan received was the inclusion of a dual-channel ABS system. It is now priced at Rs 1.8 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). Other than the safety upgrade, the motorcycle remains mechanically and cosmetically unchanged as the non-ABS one.
The Himalayan is Royal Enfield’s first proper adventure tourer built for one purpose- to explore the roads untravelled. The Himalayan is powered by an all new 411cc counterbalanced, oil-cooled unit which is not only refined but also versatile enough for both highway cruising and off-road riding. The engine is mated to a five-speed transmission, which spreads out torque generously at lower revs. This is particularly ideal for conquering rough terrains. The minimalistic design, coupled with off-road-spec wheels and long-travel suspension make this bike apt for touring. For braking, it gets disc on both ends with a dual-channel ABS as standard.
About Royal Enfield HimalayanAfter the Continental GT, the Himalayan is the new offering from the Indian motorcycle maker in just three short years. The Himalayan promises a lot and has a lot riding on it as well. It is India’s first homegrown and most affordable adventure motorcycle. By the looks of it Royal Enfield has gone to great lengths to develop this motorcycle and it is a far cry from Royal Enfield’s usual crop of bikes. The 410cc LS4 engine is bored out version of the 350cc engine which has been heavily worked on. It now features overhead cams compared to push-rods, is oil cooled which translates to a higher revving motorcycle. It is even fitted with counter balancers to keep the engine vibrations in check. Also, it is the first Royal Enfield to come with a monoshock rear suspension. Things do look promising for the Indian motorcycle maker and the Himalayan could be the bike that could popularize adventure biking in India.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Himalayan
- I would like to answer your question from a different perspective wherein I would like to ask you instead that what amount do you think will be ok to you? My intention is to point out that the better you want to keep your machine, the more you have to spend. Simple & logical.
- Maintenance cost is very low , you just need to l**e your chain after every 500 kms which almost cost 300rs and keep servicing after every 5000 kms which cost Around 1100 rupees . That's it.
- The maintaing cost for RE would be all the same, but some frictional parts are costly than the other RE bikes such as classic or thunderbird
- Dude service schedule is published in owners manual. And typically costs vary a tiny bit dealer to dealer and region to region. Also each service covers diff aspects so one cannot state a set cost for each service as same... Engines today rely a lot on electronics and Himalayan has service indicator to guide you that next stage is up. Initial two services are close together for tuning and tweaking... then set intervals target various aspects from powertrain to lube to adjustments to hydraulics. Hope this helps.
- I paid 1099 for my first service for changing the engine oil and oil filter + air filter + chain l**e + cleaning at 500 kms . You should take your bike for fuel top up and overall observation by experts at 3000 KMS and 5000kms is your next service mark .
- 500 to 1500 rs ( first service at 500 km after that every 5000 km ) during free service period (15000 km).
- Yes you will be able to ride the bike .However I request you to take test ride it properly. Make some U turns. Try in traffic. You can rent it for a few hours to get a feel for the bike. My girlfriend is the same height and she has no problem riding it.
- Brother yes you can drive but I also recommend you once try Yamaha upcoming bike Yamaha Mt and also once take test drive of KTM because it look good
- I m also 5.5 and drive so easily
- Honestly, the shorter the pillion, the more comfortable it is going to be, in my opinion. Have an agreement that before she gets on, you have your feet firmly planted on both sides and you give her a go ahead. The only way to climb would be via the pillion foot pegs so the bike can get off balanced easily, especially with saddle bags etc. I found out that my wife does not prefer a back rest due to vibrations at higher speeds, which she found to be irksome.
- Yes... Compare with others The back seat of himalayan is more comfortable then other.... If ur wife have experiance and love to be pillion then himalayan is the perfect
- Absolutely. No issues if your wife is equally interested in biking. Getting on the saddle will require a bit of effort though.
- For a perfect bike choice, a comparison is to be done on the basis of price, size, mileage, performance, features, and other specs. If you are looking for a low height bike for city rides and commuting, then you may go for Royal Enfield Classic 350. If you prefer touring bike, then you may go for Himalayan. For a detailed comparison, follow the below link - Compare. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bikes for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Dealers.
- Hello Jaspher, no offence but your question is out of syllabus, characteristics of both bikes are totally different and your questions has nothing to do with any of the bikes mentioned above.
- Both machines are completely different in character and shouldn't be even compared in terms of usage. REH is an adventure tourer wherein R15 V3 is a pure street machines. Choose wisely based on your criteria of usage. If your usage will be more for daily commutes and once in a while short distance touring, then go for R15 V3 for sure.
- R15 IS ONLY 150 CC AND HIMALAYAN 400CC SO HIMALAYAN IS BEST BUT FOR OFFICE I PREFERRED YOU PURCHASE A SECONDHAND PULSAR 150 WHICH U USE FOR ONLY OFFICE.

My RE Himalayan"s mileage is 12kmpl and max speed is around 100km/h .Don't buy as there is no power or mileage max speed is 95-100km/h, above 95km/h the vehicle gets too much vibration which we cant handle. Problems of bike is the following 1.Low Mileage 12kmpl, 2.Top Speed90-100km/h, 3.Air vent in the petrol tank had problem,so during rain every time water gets into the tank. From the first service i have been reporting this to the RE showroom staff & each time they would say by next service it will be OK . No mileage or NO Top speed also no proper service . I gave complaints and the reply was "just take to showroom you have purchased". So as they i took to the RE Showroom service and i told the problems but they did nothing. Also they won't write down every problems we say to list down in the service chart, they just write 3 or 4 things only Why should you buy a bike giving 100km/h max speed with 12kmpl mileage costing near 2 lakhs .
Best adventure touring bike below 2 L in India. Mine is 2018 non ABS version of snow white and I've covered over 15 k km with my Himalayan. Off road ride is like whole another level of awesomeness with this bike. During the free service period each service costs around only 1000 rs. Ease of handling in city is too good. I get mileage of 36-40 in highways and 30-35 in city + highways and around 28 in city use. I'm 6 feet tall and its sitting posture is very good. Standing and riding is too easy if you want to stretch your legs. Note : If you are not getting above 30 mileage then check these things regularly- 1. Tyre pressure.2. Use clutch only when needed.3. Do not accelerate like a racing bike. It's not. Its's a RE bike.4. Best speed range for Himalayan is 60-80 km/hr.
I Bought the BS4 Himalayan ABS three months ago. I usually do 25km ride daily. The bike started showing problems just after one month of purchase. The head assembly was changed due to Engine noise problem. Fuel Blockage issues started after that and still not solved even after taking the bike to the service center for more than six times. The Fuel meter is not 100% reliable. The clutch, gear Box assembly, Engine needs a lot of refinement. The Himalayan is a motorcycle with large potential in its segment, but reliability is poor. Note: If someone wants to buy the upcoming BS6 model, I suggest them to wait for an year after the launch of the bike, just to ensure if the bike shows any problems.
I have been using the Himalayan since one year,the power , comfort and satisfaction when riding is very good but when coming to the service and company's attention to the customer service is very poor . There is always unavailability of spare parts , accessories in the dealerships. They always have a answer that the bike has no demand in that particular region that's the reason why they don't have the parts or spares . The service is very poor and they don't know how to handle a customer . Poor accountability .Poor service . I still have the regret that I have chose Himalayan to Dominar
a great bike from RE stable.I hated RE for its vibrations. Himalayan is super powerful and smooth in 80-140kmph range I wish there is a carbon fibre version of Himalayan. in off-road conditions the bike has to be in manageable weight. Himalayan is monstrously heavy. clutch is hard radiator is a joke. need a bigger radiator tubeless tyres is the most missing options always on headlight is not a smart thing. should have had a smaller led day light 5inch shorter height would have been ideal
bike is amazing for running on state highway.
Awesome excellent superb thrilling bike
I know when you take such bikes mileage should not be the problem, but seriously carrying fuel in a container for this is not worth, I'm not talking about leh or spiti. Even tank capacity is low and while off roading you need to keep max half of it.
smooth ride , long stroke , great negotiating the roads
Bike for the comfort long ride for the riders who prefer comfort with power over the speed. I rode my bike continue 13 hours on hilly curves from Badrinath to Rishikesh

Royal Enfield Himalayan Highlights
It features the all-new 411cc single-cylinder engine that offers 24.8PS at 6500rpm and 32Nm of torque at 4350rpm. The bike also comes with fuel injection to make it BS-IV compliant. For the first time, Royal Enfield has introduced a bike with monoshock rear suspension with the Himalayan. It also offers 220mm of ground clearance to ensure a smooth ride in the most difficult of terrains. The bike gets large spoked wheels, 19-inchers at the front, and shod with dual-purpose tyres to make it competent to ride over rough terrains. Braking is done by disc brakes on both ends while ABS has been given a miss to keep cost low.
Himalayan Design and Features
The Himalayan has to be the standout bike in Royal Enfield’s portfolio given its adventure tourer nature. The overall styling is minimalist and rugged, which makes it an enticingly styled bike. The seats have been designed in a way to ensure maximum comfort during long rides while keeping the saddle height low. The instrument cluster is loaded right from the obvious speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge to a clock, temperature gauge and a compass as well. Also, there are brackets next to the fuel tank for you to carry jerry cans for fuel while riding over uncharted territories.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Competitors
Mahindra Mojo: While it is unfair to compare other bikes with the Himalayan, considering that it is the first adventure touring bike at this price range, the Mahindra Mojo comes the closest to being considered an actual competitor. It offers good power and cruises smoothly on the highway, unlike the Himalayan that feels out of its element there.
The Himalayan is a great bike and a thoughtful one, compared to other Royal Enfield offerings. It has been made in a fashion that ensures it won’t just be great for long trips but even for daily commutes. However, quality issues on the Himalayan works against its favour and we hope Royal Enfield have addressed these problems in this update.
