Royal Enfield, the world's oldest motorcycle manufacturer has something up its sleeves, a 400 cc adventure tourer perhaps, named Royal Enfield Himalayan?
Well, things are looking like the motorcycle maker definitely has plans since Royal Enfield Himalayan has been applied for trademark by the legendary company.
Pierre Terblanche, a renowned South African motorcycle designer recently joined Royal Enfield, which could make rumours into possibilities.
The motorcycle will have a 400 cc power plant, basically a bored out 350 cc engine. This could mean a lot more power and higher torque output as well.
Royal Enfield will use the continental GT's chassis as a platform for the new adventure tourer.
Along with the name, Royal Enfield has also trademarked the Himalayan name for vehicle parts, riding gear, helmet, clothing, etc., which will mean that the company will also have new riding gear to go along with the motorcycle.
As a Royal Enfield enthusiast myself, an adventure tourer made by the company will be a very welcoming product for RE enthusiasts and especially for those who love adventures.
