Royal Enfield Himalayan Design And Style

Royal Enfield Himalayan Design And Style

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is an adventure touring motorcycle launched in India in 2016. Former Ducati and Moto Guzzi designer Pierre Terblanche led Royal Enfield's design team during development of the Himalayan.

The Himalayan was designed and developed to take on the rough roads with ease. The design of the Royal Enfield Himalayan may not interest you, but the bike is built as an all-purpose motorcycle. The Himalayan's overall design and styling are minimal and sturdy.

The seats of the Himalayan have been designed to offer a comfortable ride during long rides along with a low saddle height. There are brackets and mounts to carry jerry cans at the front and saddle bags at the rear.

The styling of the Royal Enfield Himalayan is more to do with functionality rather than form. At the front, the Himalayan gets a simple round headlamp with a tall flyscreen. There is an extra raised front fender mounted on the long-travel front suspension.

At the rear, the Royal Enfield Himalayan features a rectangular LED taillight slotted between the rear carrier and raised rear fender which sits on a mono-shock absorber. The upswept exhaust pipe is more of a functional design to keep it clear from water while riding through a river or a stream.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine And Performance

Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine And Performance

The Royal Himalayan is powered by a newly developed 411cc, single-cylinder, air and oil-cooled engine paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The fuel-injected Himalayan engine produces 24.5bhp and 32Nm of torque.

The powertrain of the Royal Enfield features overhead cams instead of the push-rod architecture seen on other Royal Enfield motorcycles. The engine does not require tappet adjustment, in fact, the engine is free-revving offering improved power band resulting in a better performance.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Fuel Efficiency

Royal Enfield HimalayanFuel Efficiency

The mileage of the Himalayan is in the range of 30 to 32 km/l, although real-world condition could differ. Royal Enfield Himalayan has been developed to tackle some of the rough roads, rivers, and streams; the Himalayan is more of a functional motorcycle rather than a fuel efficient commuter motorcycle.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Verdict

Royal Enfield Himalayan Verdict

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is shod with all-purpose and grippy adventure styled tyres over the 19-inch and 17-inch wheels at the front and rear end respectively. The Himalayan is an all-purpose motorcycle to ensure your long rides are comfortable and is capable of tackling off-road conditions.

That said, the Royal Enfield Himalayan suffers from some quality issues and does not have enough power to munch miles to reduce the time taken for long rides.
