Royal Enfield is readying its first launch of 2018. The motorcycle manufacturer is set to add another paint scheme to its first adventure motorcycle Himalayan in India.
The company through its social media pages such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to reveal the launch details of the Himalayan Camouflage colour. The Himalayan Camouflage will be launched in India on January 12, 2017.
A few days back, the Himalayan in its new Camouflage paint scheme was spied at a dealership. The Himalayan is currently available in Graphite and Snow colours, with the Camouflage, the bike will now be available in three colours.
The teaser video shows the caption: ‘Takes after the mountains. Built to be one with it. Coming on January 12.' We expect the upcoming variant will carry a camouflage shade. The fuel tank, front and rear fender receive the new paint scheme, while the engine, suspension, and the rims are all black.
As for the engine specifications, the Royal Enfield Himalayan in its Camouflage colour scheme is expected to be similar to other two colour options. The Himalayan is powered by a 411cc, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine which produces 24.5bhp and 32Nm of torque and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The adventure tourer's suspension duties are carried out by 41mm long travel suspension at the front, while a mono shock with linkage does its functions at the rear. The Himalayan features a 300mm front disc brake and the at the rear is a 240mm disc unit.
Royal Enfield has a busy 2018 with the first being the Himalayan in a new colour which will be followed by the Thunderbird 500X and 350X. However, the most anticipated and awaited launch is the Royal Enfield Twins: Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650, which is expected to be launched in April 2018.
As for the Himalayan in camouflage colour, the new paint scheme will add more options for buyers and will indeed stand apart with its unique camo colour scheme. That said, there have been several reports of quality of the Himalayan, and Royal Enfield needs to make sure that the all-new Himalayan motorcycles are of excellent quality.
