2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan: At a glance
The new Himalayan will borrow its design features from the outgoing model. It will come with a taller windshield, a sculpted fuel tank, an upswept exhaust, and a slim tail section. The bike will pack a semi-digital instrument console with Tripper navigation system. It will also get an updated front rack, a rear carrier, and will be offered in six color options.
Engine and power
The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will likely draw power from a BS6-compliant 411cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is tuned to deliver 24.3hp of maximum power at 6,500rpm and a peak torque of 32Nm at 4,500rpm. The motor will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Safety and suspension setup
On the safety front, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will offer disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. The suspension duties on the motorcycle will be handled by telescopic forks on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
How much will it cost?
According to the leak, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will be priced at Rs. 2,51,565 (ex-showroom). However, it is unclear if this price-tag includes the panniers and other customizations.
