Royal Enfield recently showcased their all-new adventure bike for India as well as international markets. The Indian two-wheeler manufacturer christened the new product as the 'Himalayan'. Now there seems to be some interesting development ahead of the motorcycle's launch.
The North American Royal Enfield Instagram account states that the manufacturer could be working on a fuel injected version of the Himalayan. The launch date has still not been confirmed and the fuel injected model is most likely to be offered only in export markets.
Powering the Himalayan will be an all-new 410cc single-cylinder, air and oil-cooled engine by Royal Enfield. The same engine will receive both a carburettor and fuel injection system. The motorcycle will produce 24.5bhp along with 32Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The international market is stringent on emission norms for both two-wheelers and four-wheelers. Most export markets have already adopted BS-VI or equivalent emission norms. For Royal Enfield to offer its Himalayan in international markets, they will have to equip their adventure bike with fuel injection system.
Recently, Royal Enfield inaugurated its exclusive and sole store in Bangkok. The Indian two-wheeler manufacturer is growing its network around the world and has opened several stores in international markets. Stay tuned for more details of the Himalayan as we get closer to its launch.
