About Royal Enfield Himalayan
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
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.
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.
