Chennai-based two-wheeler manufacturer, Royal Enfield, has relaunched the Himalayan adventure tourer motorcycle in India. The Royal Enfield Himalayan was discontinued a while back as it did not comply with the new BS-IV emission norms. The updated bike sports a price tag of Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), which is Rs 5,000 heftier than the previous version. The booking amount for the new motorcycle has been set at Rs 5,000 and the Himalayan already has a waiting period of 2 to 3 months. It is available in the two paint schemes - Granite and Snow.
Initially, the Himalayan had left a very positive experience among customers and journalist alike. However, the bike owners soon started facing major issues related to the quality and performance of the motorcycle. A couple of months ago, Royal Enfield suspended the sales of the adventure tourer as it did not comply with the strict BS-IV norms implemented by the government in April. The addition of a fuel-injection system has now made it BS-IV compliant and we can only hope that Royal Enfield has rectified all the issues that plagued the older version.
The bike is now powered by a fuel-injected, single-cylinder 411cc engine. It produces 24.8PS of power and 32Nm of torque at 4250rpm via a 5-speed gearbox. The new BS-IV compliant engine promises to offer better throttle response and fuel efficiency. The Himalayan remains the most affordable adventure tourer motorcycle on sale and its closest competitors include the Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Mahindra Mojo.
