Royal Enfield finally launched Himalayan. RE Himalayan comes in a single body design and offers practical living, wherever on the earth you are actually living. Bike comes with a standard round headlight at the front and a raised mudguard for further prevention of dirt into the headlight unit with huge wheel at the front whereas the rear can be called fat instead of calling it as huge. Company offers a great combination of digital as well as analogue instrument console to the Himalayan.
RE Himalayan is powered by a newly developed, single cylinder, air-cooled, 411 cc engine producing 24.5 Bhp @ 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm @ 4,000-4,500 rpm. The new engine line of the Royal Enfield is more efficient than the existing series, making way for new products with higher power values and a really tough competition for other manufacturers.
The braking is handled by a double disc arrangement, with the larger 300 mm 2-piston floating caliper disc at the front and a smaller 240 mm single-piston floating caliper disc at the rear. First time ever, a mono-shock has been provided on a Royal Enfield which clearly shows that adopting the new technology by keeping its vintage essence is a true possibility. The front gets 41mm telescopic forks with an extended 200 mm of travel for ease while off-roading. The tyres are rough and huge this time, making it a true by heart explorer in the wild. The front tyre is 90/90-21 whereas the rear uses 120/90-17 tyre with spoke wheels on both ends.
RE Himalayan is avaliable in Black and White shades with single variant.
