32 Nm RE Himalayan Unveiled: Specs & Pics – Launch Next Month

In a typical Royal Enfield fashion, at an event in Delhi, the Chennai based manufacturer has officially unveiled the Himalayan. We saw a brief trailer of what the motorcycle is capable of and just could not wait to ride it up amidst all what the mother earth has to offer!

Do not look at it as a mid-size everyday commuter. Himalayan is a purpose-built motorcycle which can take you places and yet be at ease. RE also informs that not even a bolt has been shared and they literally started from a piece of paper. So, let’s delve into its specifics including the new engine.

Himayalan gets power from an all-new grounds-up single cylinder SOHC 411cc LS410 engine which churns out 24.5 bhp of peak power at 6500 rpm and an all important maximum torque of 32 Nm between 4000-4500 rpm. The motor, in essence, is air cooled and gets an oil cooler for better heat management.

Mated with this is a 5-speed gearbox and the engine is bolted on a half-duplex split cradle frame. Himalayan also becomes the first Royal Enfield to sport a monoshock absorber. To enhance its off-road capabilities, the front suspension gets a travel of 200 mm whereas the rear is good for 180 mm.

Himalayan has a fuel capacity of 15 liters and it weighs 182 kgs (kerb). Upfront it comes with a 90/90 21 inch tyre whereas the rear is a 120/90 17 incher. 300 mm disc at the front and 240 mm rear disc brakes do the stopping duties and despite belonging to the adventure tourer kind, seat height has been kept low at 800 mm keeping in mind the average height of Indians!
