With the India government crawling closer to pass the law to make ABS as a compulsory fitment on all bikes and more than 125cc; Royal Enfield is likewise taking a gander at presenting this wellbeing element in its future cruisers.
Presently, idealists and Royal Enfield fanboys would cry that this will detract from the general feel of the bike; however we believe that presenting ABS benefits more than mischief to any bike. In this day and age where road accidents are mounting at a brisk pace, we feel that ABS gives you that extra edge in the safety department and saves you from a lot of unexpected trouble.
Reports guarantee that the brand is as of now in converses with ABS producers to create units suitable for their upcoming models. This clues that the new 410cc Himalayan could be the first Royal Enfield to come furnished with ABS. The Himalyan would also mark a new era for Royal Enfield in terms of the engine and having ABS as standard would come forth as a welcome move. The bike is expected to be launched in early-2016.
Pricing for Royal Enfield models however is as of now a lot, and addition of ABS will make them costlier but then no price is too high if you are safer on that bike.
