The all new engine delivers high torque and usable power at lower RPMs. Touring utility is built inherently into the Himalayan. A 15 litre fuel tank provides a long range of approximately 450 kilometres. Luggage mounting points, for hard panniers, soft luggage and jerry cans are integral to the motorcycle’s design.
