    Default Royal Enfield Himalayan

    Royal Enfield has finally unveiled its first purpose driven motorcycle The Himalayan. The negatives about the test mules have definitely gone down with the production ready version of the newcomer. With a single body design it offers practicality and loads of adventure, wherever on the earth you are actually living.

    This new RE is powered by a newly developed, single cylinder, air-cooled, 411 cc engine producing 24.5 Bhp @ 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm @ 4,000-4,500 rpm. This also lacks the conventional push rod mechanism from other REs and a new counter balancer which is projected to reduce the infamous vibes which have been a part and parcel of the RE line up all along. This new engine lineup of the RE is more efficient than the existing series, making way for new products with higher power values and a really tough competition for other manufacturers.

    The Himalayan is offered with a lot of accessories like saddle bags, side mounts, windshields and many other off-road accessories. In short, it defines the modern approach of Royal Enfield among others in the wild.

    Design and Style
    A friendly bike with very few for noise and vibe reduction
    Standard RE round headlight at the front with a raised mudguard
    Huge wheel at the front & a fat one bringing up the rear
    Excellent fuel tank design and a step up design with divided seat.
    Neatly tucked LED tail lamp

    Instrument Console
    Digital & analogue instrument console
    The bigger dial gets analogue speedometer at the top and a screen at the bottom.
    Tachometer placed above the analogue fuel gauge and apparently
    A digital compass will definitely add direction to getting lost on roads

    The Himalayan has been unveiled in a single variant. The available shades include Black as well as White for the most possible body parts. It looks solid in both shades and provide a mean look from its first sight.

    Himalayan would get its official price tag next month when it comes of age on March 17th 2016 which is when it would be available for TD and bookings. It is expected to stay around INR 1.75-2.00 lakh for the newcomer.

    The scenario for the Royal Enfield has totally changed with its introduction, making way for new fans to add up to the royal club of motorcycling.

    After a long wait, a friend and I booked our Himalayans on 20th March. He booked a Granite, while I had my heart set on the Snow color. He got his a couple of weeks ago; I, having waited for a month and a half and with no hope of a white Himalayan reaching any dealership in Faridabad soon, brought home my matte black bike this Monday, 2nd May, just four days after I got blessed with a baby girl.

    I've done 430 kms so far. Will be going for the first service this Sunday. I'll share my experiences of riding both mine and my friend's bikes soon.

    Well, I first and foremost would like to thank Royal Enfield for not giving this bike enough power(Top speed is 130 claimed, irrespective of the BHP) and for the outrageous price tag.

    Else I would have had a massive case of buyer's remose for picking up the other "so called adventure motorcycle".

    But now, I know I couldnt have afforded it, and it would have been too slow for me.


    Anyways, congrats on your bike mate. When are the off road videos coming?
    Pulsar AS 200 2016 - 20??

    Hey batMobile,

    Kudos on the two babies coming home.
    I myself booked a snow on 20 March and received mine yesterday at Bangalore. Had a hell of a time at the showroom to get the delivery,will talk about it some time soon.But in the end here I am. Initial impressions from the 50 kms since yesterday till now,love everything except the hard gears and engine clattering.Both of them are a big turn off till now, undermining the whole package.Lets see what the first service does to it.

    Cheers till then
