Other than the above mentioned features, the motorcycle looks stock ready model. As a reminder, RE Himalayan with same colour was also spotted at a dealership last year. It is expected to be a dealer-level customised motorcycle. This dual-purpose motorcycle is powered by a 411cc, single-cylinder air and oil-cooled engine that belts out 24.5bhp of power at 6,500rpm along with a peak torque of 32Nm at 4,250rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a five-speed gearbox.
The suspension mechanism of the bike comprises of telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. For braking duties, the Himalayan has 300mm disc and 240mm drum at the front and rear respectively. However, this adventure tourer misses out on ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System). Some of the highlights include dual-purpose tyres, 21-inch front wheels, 14-litre fuel tank, retro-looking headlamps, instrument panel with analogue dials, digital selector gear indicator, etc.
As a reminder, Royal Enfield has recently discontinued the Himalayan motorcycle across the country on 31 March 2017. The company is now planning to launch a slightly updated, fuel-injected Himalayan, which will be compliant with BSIV norms. Adding to it, the company is also testing the Continental GT 750, which is expected to be launched towards the end of this year.
