Royal Enfield Himalayan unveiled

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is priced at Rs. 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Maharashtra) and Rs. 1.78 lakh (on-road, Mumbai).

And here comes a good news for RE fans in Delhi who were waiting for the Royal Enfield Himalayan but couldn’t buy it due to the ban imposed by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on the bikes and scooters that do no comply with BS4 emission norms. Earlier all the two wheeler manufacturers were asked to upgrade their BSIII vehicles to BSIV by 1st April, 2016, but now the state transport authorities have extended this for one more year. The Royal Enfield Himalayan’s on-road price in Delhi is Rs 1.73 lakh.

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. Though there is no direct rival as of now, the upcoming Bajaj Avenger 400 will join the same segment. Thanks to its modified single tube chassis, a new sub-frame, high-mounted spatter guard, and off-road tyres, the Royal Enfield Himalayan can handle all sorts of terrains with ease.

While the off-road accessory-equipped model comes with spoked wheels, mounts for jerry cans on either side of the fuel tank and extended carriers, the stock variant (regular) misses out on these. The bike also features a front splash guard, a large windshield, swing-arm and monoshock suspension unit, a disc brake at either end, and black and silver panniers with black-painted mounts. Royal Enfiled is also offering an optional accessory package with the Himalayan that includes racks, bags, hard case panniers, riding gear, etc.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Design & Styling

The design and styling of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 400cc model seems inspired from its siblings – Thunderbird and Continental GT. The adventure tourer is based on a modified single tube chassis that also underpins other RE bikes. The bike has a raw and sporty appeal, thanks to its round headlight, signature badge on side cowl, a new sub-frame and high-mounted spatter guard. It also comes equipped with off-road tyres that are claimed to offer better grip on rough terrains. The motorbike also features the Continental GT-inspired 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.

Unlike typical Royal Enfield motorcycles, the Himalayan is equipped with large 90/90 – 21-inch front and 120/90 – 17-inch rear tyres. 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 come as accessories. Dimensions of the Royal Enfield Himalayan measure 2,190mm in length, 840mm in width and 1,360mm in height. Its wheelbase stands at 1,465mm, and the ground clearance measures 220mm. It has a seat height of 800mm. The bike carries a kerb weight of 182kgs, and offers fuel tank capacity of 15-litres. The Royal Enfield Himalayan is available in two color options – Granite and Snow.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is the company’s first bike to feature rear monoshock suspension.

This adventure tourer offers an upright riding position to offer the comfort even on long runs. The Himalayan Enfield is also the company’s first bike to feature 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. This bike also gets 300mm disc with 2-piston floating caliper front and 240mm disc, single piston floating calliper rear brakes.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine Specifications

The RE Himalayan derives its power from an all-new 411cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke engine, which is a bored-out version of the Classic 350’s 350cc motor. This powertrain is boasted with a Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) configuration, and a counter balancer, thus making it the most refined Royal Enfield engine. It is claimed to offer a maximum power output of 24.5bhp at 6,500rpm, while producing a peak torque of 32Nm at 4,500rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a chain drive 5-speed gearbox. Mileage figures of the bike stand around 40kmpl – 45kmpl.

    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)
