  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Design and Build

    Royal Enfield Himalayan

    Himalayan is Royal Enfield's first purpose-built motorcycle which is suitable for on and off-road riding majorly because of its long-travel suspension. The design is a bit industrial looking and gives a feeling of rawness. The front end is simple with a round headlight and a visor for some wind protection. The headlight is located a bit high for better throw. The instrument panel has loads of information including a compass. The fuel tank has decent knee recesses followed by a low seat of 800mm. There's a carrier at the back along with the pillion seat. Both wheels are spoke type. The build quality looks good, although, it is still unproven how it will last over the years.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Riding Ergonomics

    Royal Enfield Himalayan

    Himalayan offers an upright riding stance similar to how most other adventure-tourer motorcycles provide. The rider sits straight up holding a wide and high handlebar while the feet rest on slightly rear-set foot-pegs. The seat well-padded at least for daily commuting. The suspension is well-suited to tackle any kind of a road which further adds to the comfort.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine

    The engine is all-new and Royal Enfield calls it the LS410 engine due to its long-stroke nature. It is RE's first Single Overhead Cam engine and also the first to come with an oil-cooler and a counter-balancer to reduce vibrations. It produces 24.5 BHP of power at 6,500 RPM and 32 NM of torque at 4,250 RPM. Clearly, it is tuned to deliver better low and mid-range torque which is usable in traffic and while doing off-roading.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Transmission

    The Himalayan comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. The gear ratios are well-spaced to aide linear power delivery. The clutch operation is nice for an overall stress-free experience.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Braking and Safety

    The Himalayan comes with a 300mm disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc at the back. The braking performance is good with good initial bite and progressive feedback. The tyres are dual purpose that are suitable for a variety of riding conditions and are less prone to puncture.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan Mileage

    The Himalayan is a performance oriented motorcycle. However, with a 15 litres fuel tank and provisions for carrying petrol cans on both sides of the fuel tank, the Himalayan is bound to deliver long hours of riding without fuel breaks.
