    Hi Fellow Riders,


    Had been following xbhp for quite sometime and finally became a registered user yesterday. I have booked my Himalayan BS4 on 29th Dec 2017 at HSR Motors Bangalore. They had assured me a delivery within 2 weeks. They had called me last week regarding the delivery and I mentioned that I would need a 2018 VIN number vehicle. They called back me a few days back and informed me that they will be able to deliver the new 2018 vehicle only by January end as the deliveries for the dealers start sometime around the 15th of Jan. Well I am okay with it.. I will have some more inputs during/after I get the Himalayan.

    In the meantime has anyone been able to get a look at the new Camouflage color variant that's been scheduled to be available from Jan 12th 2018... Contemplating whether I should still go with my snow white or change it to the new variant... Also I wondering if any of you have compiled a checklist of things that I need to look at before taking the delivery.. That would be very helpful..

    Thanks in advance and Happy Riding...

    Cheers

    Hearty Congratulations. Think you have made the right decision going for the Himalayan. A great all round bike. Just watch out for a few of the below points before taking delivery;

    * Test Ride the bike atleast for a few KMS. Test the Clutch, Gear Shift and Braking. I found the clutch and gear shift a bit too hard. Although has got better after the first service
    * Look out for scratches, dents etc. Loading/Unloading the bike is not clean always
    * Make sure the electricals and the instrument cluster is all in order and functional
    * Look at the Odo reading. Should be <20KMS. If more question why
    * Ensure the PDI is complete

    Pretty much the basic stuff that one has to keep in mind before taking delivery.

    The Himalayan Sleet (camouflage) is sold as a package at the moment and sold only online first come first serve for the first 500 bookings. It's a complete package with panniers and other accessories. Onroad price will be about 2.5-2.6 Lakhs. Not sure if everyone needs all the accessories that they are providing.

    Happy riding

    Default Royal Enfield Himalayan first 1k completed

    Hello bikers,

    new to xbhp from chennai and currently a proud owner of RE Himalayan BS4 and have driven my first 1k so thought I will share my experience

    Whoever buys this bike sure has a head turner in their hands. Atleast 20 strangers have enquired me about this bike on seeing it.

    Got this bike in Dec'17 and all my ride has been in the city when I touched 1k a week ago.

    The ergonomics of the vehicle is exceptionally good and you don't feel the stress on your spine and shoulders. It's aptly placed to support you. For 200kg the vehicle is surprisingly agile and can comfortably take quick turns. The engine is extremely smooth and the gear ratios have been set up beautifully

    Even at low revs the vehicle is able to hold up way good. 0-80km/h is a walk in the park and within city it will be difficult to cross more than 4th gear. The 5th gear seldom comes into picture. The motor handles 0-100 with ease . There is a bit of stress after 110km but nothing to complain.

    After my first service the clutch became a bit hard wherein I was able to feel the stress on my wrists and recently they loosened the clutch wire and it's a bit better
    The bike does have a considerable amount of false neutrals but you will be able to figure out as you drive. 2-1-N is a bit tricky.So heads up on that

    I feel the hardness was more after the change of engine oil . Personally I felt liquid gun is not up to mark so I will be changing it to Motul 5100 15W50.

    You will feel the engine heat till 300km after which it will reduce. As many of them would have said the fuel guage is not very accurate. But better to hit the bunk when the indicator touches red so that you don't damage the pump. Brakes are not as bad as reviewed it not cut throat but at the same time it's good enough to serve the purpose. More reviews after I change the oil..

    what I've always noticed with owners experience related to the Himalayan is that owners from the city are having many issues with the bike. the major reason being that the bike is not meant for city conditions. take it out to lesser traffic areas. you will surely have a beast with you.

    BS4 REH getting decent reviews. I would say that RE has finally gotten control on quality to make sure that the Himalayan is niggle-free, for most of the part of one’s ownership.

    Hi Guys,

    Has anyone installed K&N filter on REH BS4??

    Which model of the filter is compatible with the bike.

    Also does installing the auxiliary lights void the warranty of the bike.

    Regards
