Royal Enfield Himalayan Latest Updates

The prices of all the colour variants of the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 have been hiked. The premium is around Rs 2,700 and the bike now starts from Rs 1,89,565 for the base Snow White and Granite Black colour variants. Head here to know more details about the price hike, including the full price list.

When the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 was launched in January, it bore a premium of around Rs 6,000, over the BS4-compliant model. Prices for the new Himalayan BS6 begin from Rs 1,89,565 (ex-showroom Delhi). In addition to the three old colours (white, black and Sleet), Royal Enfield has also introduced three new ones: grey, blue and red. The sleet and grey colours are priced at Rs 1,92,318 and the other colours cost Rs 1,94,154. Aside from the new colours, Royal Enfield has introduced switchable ABS and hazard lights in the BS6-compliant version.

Himalayan Specifications

Royal Enfield has worked a lot on improving the refinement of the 411cc single-cylinder engine. The current BS6 power unit is certainly a lot smoother than the first one we sampled in 2016. The engine produces 24.31PS and 32Nm, 0.13PS lower than its BS4 guise. No changes to the five-speed gearbox though. The Himalayan BS6 remains a capable off-roader, suspended by long-travel suspension units at both ends. It is the only affordable adventure tourer in India to get a 21-/17-inch spoke wheel setup that comes shod with dual-purpose CEAT tyres. Braking hardware comprises a front 300mm disc with a twin-piston caliper and on the rear wheel, you get a 240mm disc with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard with switchable ABS finally offered on the Himalayan.

Himalayan Design

We have always been impressed with the simple and functional design of the Royal Enfield Himalyan. The new colours make it look more delectable, heightening the appeal of the adventure motorcycle.

Himalayan Features

There aren’t many features to talk about the Himalayan BS6. The headlight is a simple bulb unit. The instrument cluster looks virtually the same as before, although there are a few more tell tale lights and an additional toggle switch on the console for the switchable ABS. Yes, part of the extra goodies offered with the BS6 transition is switchable ABS, boosting its adventure credentials.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Competitors

In the affordable adventure touring genre, the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 locks horns with the KTM 390 Adventure, the BMW G 310 GS and the Kawasaki Versys-X 300. All three rivals are significantly pricier than the Enfield motorcycle. The Hero XPulse 200 is an even more affordable adventure motorcycle but lacks the touring capabilities of the Himalayan. Hero MotoCorp is working on a mid-displacement adventure bike that will rival the Enfield.

Editor's View of Royal Enfield Himalayan

  • Upside

    Spot on ergonomics for touring or standing and riding,Brilliant off-roading credentials,Switchable ABS

  • Downside

    High kerb weight, feels front-heavy,Braking performance could have been better

  • Our Verdict

    The Royal Enfield Himalayan 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. RE has ironed out the majority of the issues that plagued the first-gen motorcycle, but brakes still remain an Achilles heel.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Himalayan

Q. Which is best between Bajaj Dominar , Royal Enfield Himalayan, KTM Adventure and interceptor?
  • If we talk about Dominar 400, it is a significant update over its predecessor. It can do fast touring and city duties easily. However, we find it hard to recommend it over the Himalayan. The motor’s inherent power disadvantage or lack of funky features are sorely missed when compared to the Dominar, but the Himalayan is still the one that appeals to your heart. It feels like a more focussed motorcycle that might not be a Jack-of-all-trades, but the things it can do, it does extremely well. And honestly, we found ourselves more willing to live with its shortcomings. So, if you are on a budget then Himalayan adventure tourer is well worth it.If we talk about Interceptor 650, with this pricing, Royal Enfield has delivered an exceptional value-for-money product like none other. Small issues, like no clear lens for the headlight or wide exhaust layout, or the narrow and soft seat, can be overlooked or fine tuned. It is not as premium or modern in many aspects, but this motorcycle has brought back the joys of simple motorcycling - just what Royal Enfield set out to achieve. On the other hand, KTM 390 Adventure falls into place when you start calling it a 390 GT. This Adventure is actually a tourer, with rough-road capability, which should be enough for most people. Its spacious and comfortable ergonomics, its ability to tackle all kinds of roads and cover distances with ease will win it a lot of admiration and desirability. Aside from the tall seat height it should prove to be a great companion for city use too. Those of you waiting for an off-road machine to go seeking wild adventures on will have to wait a bit longer though. But if you are looking for a thoroughly capable and affordable tourer, you can’t go wrong with KTM’s 390 Adventure.You may compare these bikes allordingly. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.

Q. Does the tube tyre really works for Himalayan BS6 for off road conditions we might face puncher problems right.
  • Royal Enfield Himalayan is an Adventure tourer bike so there won't be any problem with a tubeless tyre. However, alloy and spoke wheel can make a difference in performance but not the tyres. Moreover, the advantage of tubeless tyres is that they are lightweight, sir comes out slowly, there is no unwanted friction. Talking about the disadvantages, tubeless tyres is that they are expensive to assemble and difficult to fit.

Q. What about the vibration when ride around 90-110kmph - Himalayan BS6?
  • The RE Himalayan BS6 model has been recently launched, and we haven't tested it yet in real-life conditions. So, we would suggest you to wait till we get our hands on it. Moreover, we would suggest you walk into the nearest dealership to take the test ride of the vehicle. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Bike Showrooms.
  • Yes it should be fine and comfortable when u go in 90 to 100.but when go more than 100 and 110 it becomes a little bit vibrating like if any girl rides on it she would definitely get o****m ....but still it is good for under 100 speed and super fine for offroad
  • Zig Wheels Admin should delete the next comment of this thread.... Written by someone named Sai.... What an awkward thought to reply and body shaming about girl riders.
