One of the best bike. This is my dream bike so I always loves it. After 3 years I am seeing some minor issues.... But okay to manage.

Petrol pump

5.0

Have not been regular with riding last two years as I have been out of home due work. But the rides I have done has been issueless. Apart from weekend rides, I have made a trip to Leh, transporting my bike from Calcutta to Chandigarh by road, and same way back, riding the rest. It's a bike which I found very stable on the worst of roads. No issues anywhere, as compared to the many problems with my partners. But what I understand, and what I believe is, biking or even driving, needs a finesse which most of the experienced riders/drivers lack. If you live your bike or car, which all men do, then show the love not by cleaning and polishing it everyday, but by riding or driving technically in the correct manner. Keep the machine healthy from inside, and your vehicle will never let you down. We started from Leh, back to Manali, no petrol pump for the next 300 KMS. By evening, all were sweating, their fuel indicators not even moving and stuck at the E symbol, and yet to reach the next petrol pump another about 30 KMS, the first one since we started. It was only me who was laughing on all, as my tank still indicated half tank. All opened the tank to check levels, had their theories of wrong indication. But at the pump, my bike actually took petrol just more than half to to up. All during the ride I had tried to tell everyone about riding correctly, technically, understand the engine limitations, follow the recommended procedures and not apply self created theories, to which no one listened, but the last return paid off my tips, at least to me, and set the example for my friends. I love my bike, the Himalayan, though people have their grudges about it. I do agree though, the quality of the materials used to make the bike could have been better, but again to keep such a competitive price for such a machine must have been a challenge for the company.

The main thing noticdafter

2.2

The main thing i noticed after buying the bike in 2018 is the low quality parts and paint.After riding about 20k kms there are few things that i noticed.The engine oil looses its property really quickly in air cooled engine.After 1k the engine heat and vibration or buzz increases with hard gear shifts.The clutch is very heavy.In city bumper to bumper trafic the engine heat and heavy clutch is really uncomfortable.Speed beyond 100 is not favourable because apparent engine buzz on the handlebar, Seat and footpegs.Beyond 100 its still behaves like the old re buzzy engine.The acceleration is good but not that thrilling.Rollon acceleration from 60 to 100 on fifth gear is not that good its jerky.To pull the bike harder it need to downshift if its moving slower than 70 kmph.Even at speed breaker of the bike is slowed down below 20 it has to downshift to 2nd gear to attain speed quickly.It refuses to move forward even on 3ed gear.The main reason being the weight.The braking needs a whole lot of improvement.The part that really worn out fast is the accelerator cable.It becomes hard really soon.And the cup and cone bearing is a well known issue in the biker community.An average bike for the cost its not value for money.

Smooth engine

3.8

good bike for touring.average is decent.however RE needs to work on many things for improving the1overall riding experience,noted some of them as below,seating posture,vehicle is heating too much in traffic standing positions,more information to be provided on display,especially when bike is designed1for touring GPS, Bluetooth, call taking facility, sms reader etc can be added,mobile charging facility to1be added,one more gear also can be added, rear mirrors are too small,seats of the bike are very1bad.I have changed the same,also no custom designed accessories are not readily available in your1showroom,your workshop mechanics are not able to handle the technicality of the bike,very bad service at1RE workshop,look into the same,but let me tell you with all the upgrades done by me the bike is1fantastic,good torque, smooth engine, no vibration, road stability, heavy running capacity...

My RE Himalayan"s mileage

1.4

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 .

High maintenance

High maintenance, Low mileage and very frustrating battery and starting problem.Good of those who go for touring with all the mechanical kits available, Bad for normal people.Do keep rsa activated always because you will need it again and again.

I have been using Himalayan

4.2

I have been using himalayan for last 4 years now.Rides are super smooth.Balancing is extraordinary.You will not feel the weight of the bike even during the slowest rides in bengaluru traffic.I’m getting mileage of around 26-27 in bengaluru traffic and in highways around 31- 32 kmpl.Riding posture is so neutral that i could ride 6-7 hrs straight without any pit stops.I think it is designed for single person ride.With pillion rider, It’s not that great.Off road trips are excellent.Major issue - bike won’t start if the it has been idling for a week or max 10 days.Battery will drain.You’ll have hard time starting it.Except that rest all ok.

Himalayan is a go to bike

Himalayan is a go to bike especially in a city like mumbai.When roads similar to off -roading experience thanks to poor quality construction.The bike performs very well, Easy handling and can go where no bike can dare to go.Some cons: weak engineering.Low quality spares.Chain sprocket is very delicate.Had to change at 12k ( only city rides) chain needs lubrication regularly at 500km.This is a bit annoying.And the handle bearing.If taken care properly this can last upto 10k km.Lastly the bike is supremely underpowers.Need constant gear shift.Not recommended for a power seeker.

The bike is good for offroading

The bike is good for offroading but i feel a need for more power while climbing slopes at high altitudes.Ktm adventure 390 did better than my himalayan.

Can the XPulse be a worthy alternative to the Himalayan as an off-roader? Or should you still spend that much extra on the latter?
