Royal Enfield launches the all-new Himalayan in India

Royal Enfield has launched the all-new Himalayan at the brand’s annual Motoverse festival in Goa, India. The new Himalayan, which is the successor to the first generation Royal Enfield Himalayan 411, comes with new design, powertrain, chassis, and features. The company has offered the adventure touring bike in three variants–the Base, the Pass, and the Summit–at an introductory price of INR 2.69 lakh.


The all-new Himalayan maintains some design elements from previous models but features a more streamlined look. The LED headlight at the front is positioned lower, while at the rear, the taillight and brake light are integrated with the turn indicators. These updates contribute to a 3 kg reduction in the bike’s kerb weight. As for colour options, the company offers Kaza Brown for the Base variant, Slated Himalayan Salt and Slate Poppy Blue for the Pass variant, and Hanle Black and Kamet White for the Summit variant.

The new adventure touring bike comes equipped with a new four-inch circular TFT instrument console integrated with Google Maps and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows music controls and various phone functions. Other notable features are its dual-channel ABS as standard, switchable rear ABS, LED lighting, spoke wheels, 17-litre fuel tank, riding modes (Performance and Economy), and a USB-C charging port, among others. Furthermore, the company also offers different accessories such as Adventure and Rally.


The new Himalayan comes with a new engine, the Sherpa 450, which is a 452 cc, liquid-cooled, four-valve, DOHC engine that is capable of generating a peak power of 39.5 hp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 40 Nm at 5500 rpm. For transmission, the engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox, along with a slip-and-assist clutch. Furthermore, the bike features a ride-by wire throttle system that allows for precise and customizable throttle response.
