Here’s the first official studio images of the Royal Enfield Himalayan – the 411cc single-cylinder Adventure bike.
The bike has now been officially unveiled by the factory in India, there’s also a 360 degree video of the bike being video below for you to watch.
The SOHC carburetted air-cooled engine kicks out 24.5bhp at 6,500 rpm and 32Nm of torque between 4,000-4,500rpm. It gets a 5-speed gearbox with a wet multi-plate clutch.
Frame-wise, the Himalayan has a half-duplex split-cradle frame and gets telescopic 41 mm forks (200mm of travel) at the front and monoshock set-up at the rear (180mm travel).
The bike has a 1,465mm wheelbase, 220mm ground clearance, it’s 2,190mm long and 840mm wide with a 800mm seat height. Wet weight is 182kg. The fuel tank can hold 15 litres of fuel.
No price announced yet for the UK – this bike might actually not make it to the UK at all – but if enough people fancy one then it’d be pretty easy for Enfield UK to get their hands on this small Adventure bike.
