Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 : After spotting the test mules of the N, Royal Enfield has now finally officially taken the wraps off the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 . The Himalayan has been around in its first generation version since its inception, though it has received subtle changes over the years. However, the new generation Himalayan is a completely new motorcycle with a fresh design but overall style. Read the report given below to find out all the information regarding the all new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452.
The motorcycle gets LED headlamp with LED turn signals, shorter windshield, new nose piece reminiscent of the Hero Xpulse, newly designed fuel tank, larger interradiator, new grips, new exhaust pipes and new graphics all around. Some of the other big changes include upside-down front forks, as well as slightly more off-road, dual-purpose tires with the front wheel looking smaller than the 21-inch unit seen on the current Himalayan. The motorcycle continues to ride on the top wheels.
Although Royal Enfield is yet to officially confirm the motorcycle’s specifications, the new Himalayan is expected to be powered by a larger 452cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces around 40bhp of power and 45Nm of torque mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Instead, the old Himalayan (current generation) gets a 411cc single-cylinder air-oil-cooled engine that produces 24bhp of power and 32Nm of torque.
The new generation Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 also comes with a new, larger digital instrument cluster compared to the current model’s digital analog instruments. While the current model is priced at Rs 2.16 lakh (ex-showroom), the new Himalayan is expected to be more expensive considering all the modern details including new powertrain, chassis, suspension and new technology. Would you choose the new Royal Enfield Himalayan over the likes of KTM 390 Adventure and Yezdi Adventure?
