Royal Enfield has launched the Himalayan at Rs 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Maharashtra). The model marks the company's entry into the adventure bike segment, and is styled closer to adventure bikes from the last century than their modern counterparts, but with practicality in mind.
The Himalayan uses an all-new four-stroke, 411cc, two-valve, long-stroke, air-cooled and carburetted engine. The unit is designed to deliver a flat, easy to access torque curve, delivering 3.3kgm of peak torque at 4,500rpm giving the rider access to more pulling power at lower engine speeds.
It’s a button-started powerplant with 24.5bhp of maximum power available at 6,500rpm. The engine is a relatively faster revving unit and sounds different from any other Royal Enfield.
The manufacturer also claims that the new unit is easy to maintain with oil changes required only every 10,000km. The Himalayan gearbox is a five-speed unit, with a cable-fed clutch to back it up. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via a drive chain.
