At a press conference today, Royal Enfield has launched the Himalayan in India and officially announced its prices. The motorcycle comes at a sticker price tag of Rs 1,55,545 ex-showroom, Maharashtra which is a little lower than what we had anticipated earlier!
Himalayan is the first motorcycle after decades from Royal Enfield to be built from scratch. Powering it is an all-new Long Stroke 411 cc single cylinder mill which churns out 32 Nm of peak torque between 4,000-4,500 rpm and 24.5 bhp of max power at 6500 rpm. The bike gets a new duplex split cradle frame which has been designed and developed by Harris Performance, the same guys who worked on the Continental GT.
The front end gets long travel suspension while the rear gets the company’s first monoshock setup. Royal Enfield has also worked on the maintenance aspect of the motorcycle and claims that the Himalayan would not need an oil change for around 10,000 km!
Basically, Himalayan could be termed as the first purpose built reasonably torquey mid-size motorcycle in India which can take you to the Himalayas and similar roads/no roads and be a friend on the regular tarmac as well.
