2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition 1

Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition comes with an additional Explorer kit that includes RE motorcycle accessories.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition has been launched in India at Rs 2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai). Painted in the camouflage grey shade, this special edition receives cosmetic upgrades along with an additional Explorer kit. Only 500 units of the Himalayan Sleet Edition will be sold across the country. Prospective buyers can pre-book the bike online till January 30, 2018. One has to pay an initial sum of Rs 5,000 for placing an order.

At dealership level, the bookings will be made on first-come-first serve basis from January 30, 2018 onwards. The Explorer Kit 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. Though, the overall design, features and engine of the Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet Edition remain unchanged. Royal Enfield is offering a 2 year warranty (for limited period) with the Himalayan Sleet Edition.

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

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Price in India

Ex-showroom, DelhiRs 1.68 lakh
On-road, DelhiRs 1.83 lakh

In RE’s India product lineup, the Himalayan has been slotted below the company’s flagship model Continental GT. The adventure bike has been designed and developed from ground-up to cater an all-new segment. With fuel injected BSIV engine and few more updates, the 2018 model year is relatively more expensive than its BS3 model. All aforementioned features make the RE Himalayan FI around Rs 5,000 pricier than before. While BS3 version of the bike was available at Rs 1.55 lakh, the new BS4 FI model comes with a price tag of Rs 1.68 lakh (all, ex-showroom Delhi).  On the other hand, the new RE Himalayan Sleet Edition is made available at Rs 2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai). This makes it around Rs 28,000 pricier than the regular model. 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.

2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI Specifications

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

Power for the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan comes from 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 is capable to deliver a maximum power output of 24.5bhp at 6,500rpm, while yielding a peak torque of 32Nm at 4,250rpm. Feeding 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.

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)
