About Royal Enfield Himalayan

After 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.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Latest Updates

Royal Enfield has updated the Himalayan with a dual-channel ABS system. It is now priced at Rs 1.78 lakh for the standard ABS variant and Rs 1.80 lakh for the Sleet ABS variant (all prices, ex-showroom Pune). This is a price hike of Rs 10,000 and Rs 8,000 respectively. Other than the safety upgrade, the motorcycleremains mechanically and cosmetically unchanged.

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.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Highlights

Specifications

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.

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.

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.

ZigSays

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.

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 .

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
