There’s more to come for the new Royal Enfield Himalayan, it seems. A closer look at the adventure tourer version’s instrument cluster reveals its the most advanced instrument console ever built by Royal Enfield.
This instrument cluster is made of a three-pod console, which houses a speedometer, tachometer, compass, fuel gauge, digital display with clock, gear indicator, trip meter, odometer and the inclusion of hazard lamps is evident. There are 5 icons in the centre indicating the Neutral, high beam, turn-signal, side-stand and malfunction indicator lights.
The console also sports hazard, set and select buttons. The white back instrument panel is readable even in bright sunlight. Also note that the speedometer has readings both in kmph (kilometers per hour) as well as in mph (miles per hour). Although not confirmed, the digital display is expected to feature a temperature and twin trip meters.
Putting the break to all the rumours and speculative stories, Royal Enfield has officially announced that the Himalayan will make its global debut on February 2, 2015 at a press conference in New Delhi, in the presence of Mr. Siddhartha Lal, MD & CEO Eicher Motors Limited.
Also future-proofed is the Himalayan’s 160 kmph speedo, a hint of faster things to come.
