        Update on my friend's Himalayan :
        Post the first service, the heating issue has decreased little bit, mileage I would say is better than what we used to get.

        Mechanically we have no issues so far. Its just the RC came yesterday at the dealer , which is almost 25days post buying , initially they said it would come in a week. we kept on pestering the guys to get it soon as we have a trip planned to the hills in few weeks. HSRP number plates have also come, need to collect that too.

              Got my granite today. Although dealer said that PDI is complete, found bends on oil cooler fins, chain was little dry. Got everything fixed, took test ride and then took the delivery. I ll post more updates later. Worst part is I am on the way to airport on business trip and wont be able to see my new possession for couple of weeks. Will post details once back.

                So my friend's Himalayan has covered 1100kms now. Today went for the RC (26th May bought) and HSRP number plates.
                The sound from engine that was bothering is not tappets but of Rocker Arm which will be shown tomorrow at the svc. Will update you all regarding that.

                Some cons, the gear indicator always shows 2for a second and then goes to 1, when we go from neutral to 1st.
                Fuel meter started blinking, we got petrol, we started it,it was still blinking. Stopped after few metres if riding but went back to Trip A (we were on Trip B).
                Did 110 today (was safe) and the torque can actually be felt.

                  Hi Guys!
                  I am going to book a Royal Enfield Himalayan this week. So I just had a few queries in my mind that I had to clear, hope you guys can help me out with it! (Also, this is going to be my first RE motorcycle)

                  1.) How is the Himalayan for the city use?
                  2.) I've heard that the braking has some issues. Is that true?
                  3.) What is the service interval for the Himalayan?
                  4.) I read a lot about issues with the instrument cluster. True?
                  5.) Are the Royal Enfield Service centers trustworthy? The Service Centre at Mahim, Mumbai has a lot of stories of parts being stolen.

                    Hi Nikhil,
                    Himalayan is my first RE and I was very sceptical about the decision. You can blame it on all the negative reviews. True, the built quality isn't as good as on those Japanese motorcycles, but they last much longer if you take good care of them. I got mine on 2nd May and have done over 2800 kms so far. There are all those issues of engine clatter, hard gear shifts, faulty fuel gauge etc., but once you ignore them, this bike is all fun. Now your questions:

                    1. Brilliant. Quick acceleration mixed with great manoeuvrability make Himalayan a breeze in the city traffic. And it attracts a lot of attention as well 😋
                    2. Hmmm.... I won't say there's an issue with the brakes. I mean, yeah, the front lacks bite and feel and the rear is happy to lock the wheel in a jiffy, but you'll get a hang of it soon enough. Use them together and you're good.
                    3. Service interval is 5000 kms but engine oil needs changing only at 10000 kms.
                    4. It's not that the whole console is faulty. I was probably the first one to report the faulty fuel gauge and I'm yet to get a replacement. That gear indicator has a mind of its own. Shows the correct gear only when you leave the clutch completely.
                    5. Yes and no. It's not just RE, service centres suck everywhere for all brands. It's up to you how well and how soon you befriend the mechanics.

                    I hope it helps. Good luck with your choice.

                      Guys its only been a week since I booked Himalayan and I'm dying. I watch every Himalayan YouTube videos that also everyday. I think by the time it arrives, I'll be declared mentally unstable. This wait is killing me.

                          I booked mine today. Ceramic Colour. There's a 2-3 month waiting period.

                          PS. Even the test drive vehicle had issues with the instrument cluster. The gear shifts were not seen on it. And it stayed at 2 even as I was shifting. Apart from that the bike is really comfortable and impressive.

                            So the rocker arm and tappets were adjusted svc. The front brake lever was touching the visor on complete turn, also rectified.

                              I was keen on buying Himalayan and very optimistic about it during its promotional period going on. With all new engine, low NVH levels, long service interval etc said during that.
                              After reading all the post it is evident that engine+transmission wise this bikes initial ownership feedback is poor. chassis and ride quality is good thats a thumbs up.
                              But why so much initial issues with engine and transmission.
                              Will wait for more time to at least consider this for buying. May be some long term review and long riding experience may put more confidence.
                              So much tempted but disappointed after reading initial ownership reviews

                                Nowadays dont expect parts quality, after sales service from any company, be it honda, hero, RE, Bajaj etc. R&D, training quality in automotive sector in India is close to zero. Every1 want to make money with little investment in given time frame. Thatswhy there is waiting periods. Just experiments and race with other companies by launching new models. Its all business, RE dont even bother that a customer invested 2 lacs as a guinea pig, "nhi chalegi to band kar denge, RE got the returns in manufacturing limited stocks and making the customers waiting"
