Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition Is Now Available At Dealerships

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition 1

– The Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition is now available at dealerships at Rs 1.71 lakh.

– This new model with Explorer kit will cost additional Rs 31,900.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition was launched exclusive online at Rs 2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai) in January 2018. Initially, the company sold only 500 units of this special edition across the country. Painted in the camouflage grey shade, the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition is now available at dealerships at Rs 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom). While it was originally made available with an additional Explorer kit, it is now offered as a third colour option on the model lineup. Compared to the standard Black and White colour model, the Himalayan Sleet Edition is around Rs 3,600 more expensive.

As a reminder, RE had temporarily suspended the bike in mid 2017 due to BS-III compliance and BS-IV regulations were enforced from April 1, 2017. With an aim to make the Himalayan BSIV compliant, the Chennai based bikemaker converted it into a fuel-injected machine (2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI). Priced at Rs 1.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the deliveries of the Himalayan FI version were commenced in September 2017. The updated BSIV FI version of the bike addresses the excessive noise and clutch and gearbox related issues of the previous model. In July 2016, the company had also recalled the Himalayan over these problems. RE is also planning to introduce the ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) on the adventure sport motorcycle. Pictures – Modified Royal Enfield Himalayan Green

If a buyer wants to opt the Explorer kit, it will get attract a premium of Rs 31,900 over the bike. 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.

Displacement411cc
Max Power24.5bhp @ 6,500rpm
Max Torque32Nm @ 4,250rpm
Transmission5-speed
Kerb Weight191kg

Engine setup of the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan includes a 411cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke engine boosted with the fuel injection technology. The BS4 compliant powertrain with FI technology results into optimum fuel delivery and automization. It also improves the overall performance and fuel efficiency of the bike, and increases the acceleration sensitivity. This gasoline unit churns out a maximum power output of 24.5bhp at 6,500rpm, while generating a peak torque of 32Nm at 4,250rpm. Channeling power to the wheels is a chain drive 5-speed gearbox. Since the RE Himalayan Sleet is just a special edition, no mechanical changes have been made to the bike. It features the same 411cc air-cooled motor.

As a reminder, the BS3 RE Himalayan was packed with a carburetted 411cc engine, which was a bored-out version of the Classic 350’s 350cc motor. With a Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) configuration, and a counter balancer, this motor was one of the most refined Royal Enfield engines. Pictures – Royal Enfield Surf Racer & Gentleman Brat Custom Bikes

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Mileage

The BS3 version was frugal in nature delivering a mileage around 40kmpl – 45kmpl. Since the updated model features the same power unit with FI technology, it is as fuel efficient as the previous one.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Design & Features

In terms of design and styling, the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan 400cc looks exactly similar to the BS3 model. Inspired by the larger siblings – Thunderbird and Continental GT, the Himalayan has a raw and sporty appeal. The bike uses a modified single tube chassis that also underpins other RE bikes. Sporting round headlight, signature badge on side cowl, a new sub-frame and high-mounted spatter guard, the face of the bike looks quite aggressive. The adventure tourer comes fitted with off-road tyres that are claimed to offer better grip on rough terrains. Unlike typical Royal Enfield motorcycles, the Himalayan runs on the large 90/90 – 21-inch front and 120/90 – 17-inch rear tyres.

Elements such as fuel tank, a raised rear seat, round rear view mirrors, digital MID, up-swept exhaust, twin pot instrument cluster with chrome ring and blackened engine and chassis pipes have been carried over from the Continental GT. This adventure tourer offers an upright riding position to offer the comfort even on long runs. The off-road accessory-equipped version is offered with a high-mounted front mud flap, a large windshield, a heightened fork and mud guard placed close to the tyre. The black and silver panniers with black mounts also come as accessories.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition, which is now available as a new colour scheme, with the original Explorer Kit will cost you around Rs 31,900 over the standard model. The package includes Royal Enfield motorcycle accessories including pannier mounting rails, pre-fitted 26-litre water resistant aluminium panniers and off-road style aluminium handlebar with cross-brace and bar-end weights. The bike also gets power coating finish on the engine guard.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Dimensions

No dimensional changes have been made to the bike. The 2018 RE Himalayan FI measures 2,190mm in length, 840mm in width and 1,360mm height with a wheelbase of 1,465mm. The bike stands on 220mm of ground clearance and offers a seat height of 800mm. It carries a kerb weight of 182kgs, and has a fuel tank capacity of 15-litres.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Colours

The RE Himalayan BS4 is available in a total of two colour schemes – Granite and Snow. The new Sleet edition has the camouflage paint job – Grey and White.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Suspension & Braking System

The Himalayan is Royal Enfield’s first bike to get rear monoshock suspension along with the regular 41mm front telescopic forks unit. The latter one is covered with fork gaiters to safeguard the fork seats from dust and other unwanted elements. Based on the Half-duplex split cradle frame, the bike derives its braking power from the 300mm disc with 2-piston floating calliper front and 240mm disc, single piston floating calliper rear brakes.

    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)
