BS6 Royal Enfield Himalayan Gets Its Second Price Hike

2020 RE Himalayan BS6

The Royal Enfield Himalayan draws power from a 411 cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine, which makes 24.3 PS power and 32 Nm torque

All automobile manufacturers have taken a big hit in terms of sales, and hence, to compensate for it, many manufacturers have slightly hiked the prices of their offerings, in a bid to reduce the damages. One such manufacturer is Royal Enfield, which has hiked the prices of the BS6 Himalayan for the second time since its launch in January 2020.

The BS6 Himalayan was launched in the country at a starting price of Rs 1,86,811, however, the first price hike came in May 2020, which resulted in the price being increased by Rs 2,754 to Rs 1,89,565 (all prices, ex-showroom). Now, Royal Enfield has increased the price of the Himalayan again.

The BS6 Himalayan with Granite Black and Snow White paint schemes now starts from Rs 1.91 lakh onwards, while the Sleet Grey and Gravel Grey colours will now cost Rs 1.94 lakh. On the other hand, the Lake Blue and Rock Red continue to be the most premium colour options, and will now set you back by Rs 1,95,990 (all prices, ex-showroom).royal enfield himlayan bs6 price colours-2
