We told you just a few days back (here) that Royal Enfield is warming up to launch the new Himalayan BS4 very soon and the 2017 version had broken cover and comes with some changes as listed on this page. It has already started reaching dealerships across the nation and in a latest update we have learnt that Himalayan BS4 deliveries have also commenced in many cities. It appears that the focus for now is Southern India along with Pune and Mumbai. North may get the motorcycle few days later.
Motorcyclists who have ridden the new BS4 Himalayan have shared various initial views and they say that the visible quality is a lot better but what has been consistent word is that the new Himalayan “feels” underpowered (undertorqued) when compared with the older version. It will be interesting to see how things have changed in this perspective.
