The dual-purpose adventure touring machine derives power from a 411 cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC four-stroke engine that is good enough to develop a maximum power output of 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque. The powertrain is linked with a five-speed transmission and the 2021 MY version became the second Royal Enfield motorcycle to receive a Google-powered Tripper navigation system.
Some of the key highlights in the Royal Enfield are a dual-channel ABS system, switchable rear ABS, hazard lamp switch, long-travel suspension, a 21-inch front and a 17-inch rear wheel along, 15-litre fuel tank, circular headlamp, etc. RE is reportedly working on a 650 cc version of the Himalayan and it could be some time away.
