Updated Royal Enfield Himalayan gets some cosmetic updates; comes with a fuel injector and BS-IV compliant engine
As we reported earlier, Royal Enfield is gearing up to launch the updated Himalayan with fuel injection system and BS-IV emission compliant engine, the motorcycle has been spotted at a dealership. Apart from the engine update and introduction of fuel injection system, the adventure-spec motorcycle also receives some minor cosmetic updates.
As the motorcycle has been spotted, it sports black cladding on the tip of front beak. This temporary cladding can be removed and it has been introduced to protect the beak from being damaged during transit. The handlebar gets blackened clamp and the fuel lid too had been blackened. Apart from that, it sports round blackened rear view mirror. Apart from that, rest of the design elements appear unchanged.
The updated Royal Enfield Himalayan gets power from a BS-IV compliant 411 cc SOHC fuel-injected petrol engine that is capable of churning out 24.5 bhp of peak power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm. Transmission duty is done by a 5-speed gearbox. Fuel efficiency and performance is expected to be same.
Stopping power is provided by a 300 mm front disc brake and a 240 mm rear disc brake as well. The Royal Enfield Himalayan is equipped with a 41 mm telescopic front fork with 200 mm travel and rear sports monoshock absorber with 180 mm travel. This updated bike is expected to be priced slightly higher than the carbureted model. Expect the sales of this updated model to commence later this year.
Meanwhile, Royal Enfield is working on a more powerful Himalayan that will be powered by a 750 cc engine. This same engine will generate power for the brand’s upcoming flagship model Continental GT 750. The motorcycle manufacturer has also announced that it will revamp its entire portfolio by next two-three years. However, the Classic range and Continental GT will continue selling.
