Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

Royal Enfield Himalayan :Officially unveiling the ‘All-New Himalayan’ a few weeks after the official launch, Royal Enfield Himalayan today revealed the Indian pricing of its latest adventure motorcycle at its flagship event – MotoVars – in Goa. Starting at ₹2.69 lakhs for the base variant, known as Base (named after the mountain range), it is available in a single color – Kaza Brown.

The mid variant, named Pass (named after mountain passes), is priced at ₹2.74 lakhs and comes in two colors – Slate Himalayan Salt and Slate Himalayan Blue.

After much anticipation, Royal Enfield has finally announced the prices of the all-new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450. The bike manufacturer, based in Chennai, had revealed the specifications of the new generation Himalayan earlier this month, leaving out the details of its pricing. Now, Royal Enfield has announced the prices for the latest version of the Adventure Tourer at the ongoing MotoVars event in Goa (previously known as Rider Mania).

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

The all-new Himalayan, also known informally as Himalayan 450, is the successor to the first-generation Royal Enfield Himalayan 411, which was introduced in 2016. It is expected that the old model will be discontinued after the launch of the new motorcycle in showrooms.

The new Himalayan, which began development in 2017, is a ground-up model that Royal Enfield claims shares no bolts with its predecessor and brings several firsts for the manufacturer. At its heart is a new single-cylinder engine called Sherpa 450, with a displacement of 452 cubic centimeters. It’s liquid-cooled, features dual overhead cams (DOHC), an aluminum bore, and has a slightly short stroke – all making it 10 kilograms lighter than the previous model. This engine produces a maximum power of 40 PS and a peak torque of 40 Nm – with a flat torque curve focused on making the motorcycle highly usable on both low and high revs.

But the firsts for Royal Enfield don’t end there. The throttle, which was previously cable-activated, has been replaced with a more refined ride-by-wire system, offering the option to switch off the ABS on the rear wheel with different riding modes (including two – Performance and Economy).
The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and slipper clutch. The motorcycle is capable of reaching speeds of around 150 km/h and is expected to return approximately 28 km/l, making it an efficient fuel economy figure. It comes with a 17-liter fuel tank, providing an estimated travel range of about 450 kilometers.

Like the previous Himalayan 411, the wheel sizes remain 21 inches at the front and 17 inches at the back, but this time the wheels are aluminum (the option to switch to tubeless spoke rims will come later), and the rear tire has been widened from 120 mm to 140 mm. The bike features CEAT dual-sport tires specially developed for it.

There are significant changes in the suspension as well – while maintaining a front travel of 200 mm, the bike now has upside-down front forks, which are considerably firmer compared to the previous model. The rear suspension travel has increased from 180 mm to 200 mm. Ground clearance has also seen a marginal increase from 220 mm to 230 mm.
