    Glad to see your views as I'm looking to upgrade to the white one too from a CB Trigger.

    Pics look good! Are the first few ones clicked on the way to Nandi Hills?

    Please keep sharing your experiences and reviews!



    I was thinking that the HIMALAYAN seen along the length of the bike is made of embossed paint. Are they just stickers?

    Ride safe :thumbup:

    It's on the way to Kolar from Nandi hills
    Sadly it's just a sticker, even I felt so disappointed First. But the thing is we can create Himalayan stickers in different colors (I'm proud that I'm a Designer)

      I test rode Snow White Himalayan sometime back. I couldn't help but notice some tup tup sound while engine decelerated. Like exhaust was firing. Any owners facing this problem? If it's a problem at all.

        It's not a problem at all, I just love this back firing. If you are away from the bike and hear this you might love it.

          They have provided caps for some gaps. I don't understand the logic behind those gaps though. The caps are not in stock in RE ASS.

            You should tweet them along with the pictures, so RE can see & understand the design & RnD flow. Thank God, I don't see any "the RE famous" rust. �� �� ��

            DO NOT quote the entire picture set.

              Is it only me or does anyone else also see a hint of mountain bike in Himalayan?

                      Re: Royal Enfield Himalayan

                      Came to know through a friend who has contacts with RE there is an issue of overheating particular to the bikes delivered in first batch. This has been rectified in the second batch. Some alteration is needed to tackle engine overheating. It will be done by RE free of cost. But they are not recalling any bikes. If any of you are facing this issue then do visit RE ASS at the earliest. Will be visiting the ASS tomorrow regarding this.

                      And with respect to bikes performance as of now its good. Bike feels planted on highways. Returning a mileage of around 34kmpl. Have covered 1k kms. There are some noises in the engine and RE people have promised to set it right. The gear indicator response is very slow. Engine has started heating again in city limits. As I said earlier will visit the ASS and update the thread regarding this.

                                Hey guys,

                                Last Saturday, my friend and I went to this unknown place called Panua Dekhar, some 40 kms from Jim Corbett on the way to Ranikhet. This place doesn't exist, even on Google maps. It's only a couple of houses and a tiny dhaba. Sharing a couple of pictures here. Will post a detailed review over the weekend.
