The updated BS6 411cc motor delivers 24.31PS and 32Nm. That is a drop of 0.5PS from the previous edition. Torque remains the same but given that the kerb weight is up by 5kg to 199kg, we can safely assume a drop in performance.

The BS6 Himalayan now gets switchable ABS. So, you can deactivate the rear wheel ABS with the help of a switch. It allows riders to lock and drift the rear-wheel on off-road surfaces. In addition, the Himalayan gets a hazard light switch, as well as improvements to the side stand for better hold on off-road surfaces as well. 

 

Higher pricing:
