April 5, 2017:
Royal Enfield has updated the Himalayan with fuel injection (FI) system as opposed to carburettor as seen on the older bike. The FI system has been added to make the bike BS-IV emission norm compliant and this will most likely increase the price by Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000. The FI version motorcycle hasn't reached dealerships yet but we expect it to hit showrooms soon.
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.
Off-road capability, Refined vibration-free engine, Balanced Chassis
Quality of components, No ABS
Those who are looking for a no-nonsense, capable off-road tourer will find the Himalayan extremely appealing. The Royal Enfield community and the availability of a host of exclusive accessories lets you equip yourself to tread the off-beaten path efficiently.
The Himalayan is easily the most anticipated motorcycle from Royal Enfield given its positioning as an adventure touring motorcycle. We tell you all there is about the new motorcycle, after a day behind its bars in the most challenging of terrains.
