2017 Royal Enfield Himalayan gets a cleaner BSIV engine with fuel injection system.

Royal Enfield had launched the 2017 Roayl Enfield Himalayan BSIV (FI – fuel injection) in May 2017 at Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, dealers across India have not received a single unit of the Himalayan after the BS-IV regulations were rolled out from April 1, 2017. If reports are to be believed, the company has temporarily suspended production of the Himalayan motorcycle.

The company is currently working on rectifying all quality-related issues that have been coming out in the Himalayan, ever since it was launched in 2016. The bike is reportedly having issues related to gearbox, clutch and excessive noise. In July 2016, the company had also recalled the Himalayan over these problems. Reports suggest that the updated version of adventure sports motorcycle will go on sale before festive season. Bookings for the Himalayan BS4, Fuel injected version is still on. One can pre-book the bike by paying an initial sum of Rs 5,000. Though, the deliveries are likely to commence in August 2017.

The company is also planning to introduce the ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) equipped Himalayan. Positioned below the company’s flagship model Continental GT, the Himalayan has been designed and developed from ground-up, and caters to an all-new segment in the Indian market. As of now, there is no direct rival of the Himalayan. In terms of pricing, though, it locks horns against the Mahindra Mojo and the KTM Duke 390.

Powering the motorcycle is a 411cc, single-cylinder, BSIV compliant, fuel injected petrol engine paired to a five-speed gearbox. This engine is good for 24.5bhp of power and 32Nm of torque.

    RE has a bad reputation for carrying age old technologies and famous vibration, and maintainance issues. Now its time that they come over these issues, looking at how the market is offering new bikes RE should stop its marketing based on nostalgia.

    Well I plan to be a spoilsport and wait 5-6 months for the initial response and then proceed to buy this beauty!!! Quite worried about the service issues.. Reboring the 350 cc has heightened my reservations! All the best to RE , hoping this rocks the market! Bajaj doesn’t stand a chance ( strong prejudice against these suckers)
