Royal Enfield has unveiled the Himalayan Adventure Tourer motorcycle at an event In India. The Royal Enfield Himalayan is the company's first adventure tourer, and is the only motorcycle of its type in the sub 500cc segment in India. Prices for the new bike will be revealed in March.
Engine & Gearbox Details
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is powered by a 410cc, single-cylinder, air and oil-cooled carburetted engine that produces 24.5bhp@ 6500rpm and the peak torque is 32Nm @4000–4500rpm. The engine features a single overhead camshaft which is a first for Royal Enfield. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
Suspension & Brakes
The Royal Enfield Himalayan features long travel front forks up front with 200mm travel and a monoshock with 180mm travel at the rear which help the bike handle the rough stuff with ease.
The Himalayan is brought to a stop with the help of disc brakes on both the 21-inch front wheel and the 18-inch rear wheel both of which are spoked rims. The front brake is a 300mm, 2-piston floating caliper disc and the rear brake is a 240mm single piston floating caliper disc.
- Counter balance is provided for engine to reduce vibrations
- High ground clearance

- Brand new half-duplex split cradle chassis built from the ground up by Royal Enfield

Currently, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is the only adventure tourer under 500c available in the country and has no direct competitors. In the future, it could have a fight on its hands if KTM brings the 390 Adventure into the country.
