The much revered Royal Enfield has recently launched its Himalayan with a competitive price of Rs. 1.55 lac (ex-showroom, Maharashtra).
Been in talks for some reasons, the practically outlined adventure tourer conveys the same as it appears.
Comparatively better adventure duties and riding experience is what this new RE promises.
So, finding out the USPs of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan
() is indeed necessary.
1. Designed on a highly durable half-duplex split cradle frame the Himalayan provides strength and highly precise and responsive handling.
2. The bike has got the highest ground clearance of 220mm amongst the fella Indian motorcycles that supports it over toughest off road bits. Angularly high-placed, up-swept exhaust helps cross water bodies and the sump-guard avoid scraping most of the obstructions.
3. The bike is suspended by the 41mm telescopic forks at the front linked to mono shock and swing-arm at the rear. The all-new long travel suspension ensures the stability and better handling over rough terrains.
4. The new Himalayan gives a progressive feel because of the Bybre disc brake set-up on both the 300mm front and 240mm rear brake.
5. The Himalayan is powered by the advanced and light OHC (Overhead Camshaft) LS410 engine. Although the high endurance engine performs much linear and well in a wide range of temperature, but it misses the thump.
6. The bike sprints on large and durable 21” and 17” spoke wheels at the front and rear respectively. Again an advantage to roll over higher obstacles. The CEAT dual purpose tyres are there for enough grip on all types of terrains.
7. The new Royal Enfield is equipped with a multi-functional instrument console that includes analog and digital gauges, gear-shift indicator, fuel gauge, compass, clock, battery condition along with service reminder. The bike lit up the roads by a high-intensity headlamp and an LED tail lamp.
8. The feature list of the bike includes wide and flat handlebar, with a perfect seat height of just 800mm. The ideal placement of footpegs and handlebar in combination with split seats gives a comfortable and fatigue-free riding posture.
9. The lightest Royal Enfield with a kerb weight of 182 kg is powered by the all-new 411cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 24.5bhp and 32Nm at 4,000 to 4,500rpm. The powerful set-up is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
10. The company has designed the Himalayan with luggage mounting points and accessories that include metal panniers, jerry cans and many other so that you can keep the stuff for long rides.
If you still have doubts about the bundle of the brilliant features at a superb price, then you must visit the showroom for a test drive.
