Royal Enfield Himalayan - Built For All Roads‎ Unveiled

Royal Enfield today launched its first ever purpose built adventure tourer, the Himalayanfor a price of Rs 1.78 lakh (on-road Mumbai). Powered by an all-new 411cc, air and oil-cooled single cylinder engine the Himalayan is the brand's first all-new product in a really long time. The chassis and suspension are all-new as well, in fact there's hardly any parts sharing with other models in the Royal Enfield product range. Outputs for the motorcycle are 24.8PS of power and 32Nm of peak torque. The Himalayan is the first such motorcycle to be made in the country focused on adventure touring, and meant specifically for being ridden on the worst terrain possible. 

For now, Siddhartha Lal – MD and CEO Eicher Motors Ltd says Himalayan is not being registered in Delhi as the NGT decision came in last minute. It is available in NCR for test rides, and bookings. Royal Enfield is working with authorities to resolve the situation alongwith other manufacturers facing the same problem. (Suzuki Access 125, another BSIII compliant two wheeler was also launched a few days ago.)

Royal Enfield is said to have invested INR 500 crores on the development of its upcoming product range and a part of this investment will go into setting up of two technology centers which will work on new product development and improving the quality of all Royal Enfield motorcycles. The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been developed in conjunction with Harris Performance, the renowned British performance specialists RE acquired last year. The all-new 411cc motor that powers the bike has been developed in-house. It churns out 24.5 bhp @ 6500 rpm and 32 Nm @ 4000-4500 rpm. In order to reduce vibrations, this motor will be equipped with a counter-balancer. This could be RE’s most refined engine unit till date.
