Royal Enfield Himalayan spotted – “very, very close” to production model

The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been sighted again by AutoX spy photographers, but this time they have managed to snap un-camouflaged production-ready version of the Royal Enfield Himalayan.


The red one we’ve seen before, but it’s a black one this time, and if you look closely you can spot it’s a production-ready version, this Scrambler styled RE gets a large windscreen, high-set mudguard, off-road tyres, raised triple-clamp handlebar, raised rear seat, raised suspensions in the front, raised mono-shock in the rear, saddle bag carriers, raised rear mud guard, disc brakes at the front and rear, and the upswept exhaust.


Furthermore, the Himalayan features a Continental GT’s fuel tank, twin pot instrument cluster with chrome ring, digital MID and gets classic round rear view mirrors. Note the absence of the kicker in the test-mule, however, we hope the production model gets one. With all these above features it is evident that the Himalayan is sheer Adventure tourer and will be very handy for your long adventure rides.


Built-on a modified single tube chassis, the Himalayan will get two engine options – all new 410cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, while the other would be the 750cc, in-line, twin-cylinder, oil-cooled engine will be the most refined, and vibration free Royal Enfield engine ever built. The 410cc Himalayan is expected to be priced between Rs 2.3-2.5 lakh, while the 750cc Himalayan is expected to be priced in the range of around Rs. 3.5 lakh, this pricing is expected to undercut the Harley-Davidson Street 750 for sure.


As reported yesterday, the Himalayan will be the first bullet to come with an ABS feature, and has earlier confirmed that the motorcycle is expected to unveil during the Rider Mania 2015, while the official launch will take place sometime in early-2016.
