The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a popular motorcycle owing to its go-anywhere possibility, but also being a manageable motorcycle in terms of power and weight. This has led to many fans not only in India but even globally. Riding on the success, Royal Enfield has tweaked the motorcycle over the years but sticking to its basics.
For 2023, Royal Enfield has given the Himalayan subtle updates to keep it relevant to time, and here’s what you need to know about the 2023 Royal Enfield Himalayan.
For 2023, Royal Enfield has introduced three new colour options for the Himalayan, giving it a fresh look. Also, the motorcycle maker has discontinued three colour choices. For 2023, the Royal Enfield Himalayan will be available in Gravel Grey, Pine Green, Granite Black, Dune Brown, Glacier Blue, and Sleet Black colours to choose from. The Lake Blue, Rock Red, and Mirage Silver have been discontinued.
Royal Enfield has revised the pricing of the 2023 Himalayan, depending on the colour options. The pricing is as follows:
