Mumbai, 16th March 2016: After the global unveil of the 'Himalayan' on 2nd February in New Delhi, Royal Enfield today officially launched the adventure motorcycle in India at INR 1,55,545 (ex-showroom Maharashtra) and officially declared start of bookings from today onwards.

The Himlayan will cost you just INR 1,78,872 on-road in Mumbai. (Complete price list at the bottom). At 421cc motorcycle at this price is an absolute steal! The Himlayan will be available in two colours - Granite (black) and Snow (white). Deliveries for the Himalayan will also start this month with limited number of stocks. From next month, the production would be ramped-up to satisfy more demand. At this price we hope the Himalayan does not end up like the Classic model which comes with a long waiting period.

As of now the Himalayan cannot be registered in Delhi due to the sanctions imposed by NGT on registration of select type of cars and bikes. However, the motorcycle will be available for test rides and registration in the NCR

The Himalayan is built on a rugged duplex split cradle frame designed and developed by Harris Performance. A strong mono shock rear suspension with linkage allows for longer travel and delivers a smoother ride experience regardless of terrain. Royal Enfield has given the Himalayan a good 220 mm ground clearance to gobbles up obstacles comfortably be it in the Himalayas, rocky river beds or at stream crossings.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan Technical Specs

The Himalayan is powered by a completely new and evolved overhead camshaft engine platform that forms the base for its new long stroke LS 410 engine. The all new engine delivers maximum power of 24.5 bhp @ 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of  32.5 Nm @ 4,000-4,500 rpm. The all new engine delivers high torque and usable power at lower RPMs. This makes for smooth riding in higher gears at lower speeds, making it easy to climb hills, or to maneuver through traffic.
“Himalayan is the culmination of Royal Enfield’s 60 years of enduring history in its spiritual home—the Himalayas. Our single biggest insight in all these years of riding has been that the best motorcycle for the Himalayas is not one that tries to dominate its landscape, but one that is able to go with its flow. Large adventure tourers that currently define this category, do not fare well in the Himalayas as they are very heavy, extremely complicated, intimidating and not really designed for this environment. With its purpose-built ground-up design, the Himalayan is a simple and capable go-anywhere motorcycle that will redefine adventure touring in India.” says Mr Siddhartha Lal, CEO, Royal Enfield and MD & CEO, Eicher Motors Ltd.

“Functionally - the Himalayan’s non-intimidating spartan design, a flat torque curve, accessible seat height and long suspension travel alongside the ease of ownership, make the Himalayan is an extremely versatile motorcycle that is adept for long rides while equally being the definitive choice to navigate our urban jungles. Towards creating and growing a new segment which offers an option for adventure loving motorcycling enthusiasts we are offering the new Himalayan at a price of Rs. 155,545 (Ex-showroom) in Maharashtra and Rs. 178,872 (on-road) in Mumbai”, says Mr Rudratej (Rudy) Singh, President Royal Enfield.
