Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Rendered, Looks Ready For Adventure

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Rendered

Check out this digitally rendered image of the forthcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 adventure tourer, imagined in production-ready form

Motorcycle enthusiasts across the country are waiting with anticipation for the launch of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450. The upcoming adventure-tourer has been spotted multiple times on Indian roads, undergoing testing, with plenty of spy pictures floating around the internet. Thanks to said spy pics, plenty of details about the motorcycle have been discovered.

Youtuber TrippleLines has created digitally rendered models of the RE Himalayan 450, using all the information available about it. Let’s go through the details. At the front, we see a round headlamp and a beak fender, both mounted on a sleek front subframe. We also see long-travel USD forks, a tall front visor, tall handlebars, and a muscular fuel tank here.

The motorbike gets a spacious and comfy split-seat setup, along with a mono-shock rear suspension. There is no traditional taillight here; the brake lights have been integrated into the turn indicators. The artist has also included panniers and a top box here, which make the Himalayan 450 look ready for long-distance touring.

Other notable details include a round instrument console (which will likely be semi-digital), round rear-view mirrors, and wire-spoked wheels with single discs on both ends. Also, in a typical ADV fashion, the front wheel is bigger than the rear. One of the rendered models in the video has a bright-red frame, which looks very bold and loud!

Well, RE is expected to offer plenty of accessories for the Himalayan 450, so we can’t rule out anything! These digitally rendered models look very accurate, and we’re sure that the actual production models will only have minor changes, if any. Now, let’s talk about the powertrain of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.

The forthcoming ADV will be powered by a 450cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It will be significantly more powerful and torquey than the current Himalayan, producing upwards of 40 bhp, and should thus offer better performance on and off the road. The upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is set to launch in India later this year, with a price of around Rs. 2.8-3 lakh, and it holds great promise as an adventure motorcycle.
