With more and more enthusiasts buying Royal Enfield motorcycles with each passing year, the need of the hour was an affordable 'off-road' adventure motorcycle, and Royal Enfield has given us just that.
The bike has been developed from ground zero and doesn't share any similarity with the other Royal Enfield models.
The engine of the Royal Enfield Himalayan is a 411cc unit, single-cylinder, air-cooled mill with overhead cams producing 24.5bhp at 6,500rpm and 32Nm at 4,000-4,500rpm. The bike has a kerb weight of 182kgs and ground clearance of 220mm. The fuel tank capacity is a not-so-much 15 litres though.
Going the old school way, Royal Enfield has decided to use a carburettor in the Himalayan. There are two 41mm forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear with a travel of 180mm. To make the Himalayan more versatile, Royal Enfield has given a 21" front wheel and a 17" wheel at the rear.
Even though there has been no confirmation from Royal Enfield about the price of the Himalayan, the bike is expected to be priced around 1.8 lakh.
