The new BS6 Himalayan is now offered with three new paint schemes: Gravel Grey, Lake Blue and Rock Red. These three new paint schemes will be offered with the standard colours carried forward from the previous model, which include Granite Black, Sleet Grey and Snow White.

Apart from the three new paint schemes, the new Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 now also comes with a host of new features and equipment. This now includes switchable ABS, which can be controlled using a new switch on the console, to toggle between ABS activation and deactivation. The Royal Enfield Himalayan now comes equipped with Hazard toggle switch as well.

The new Himalayan carries forward the BS6-compliant version of the same 411cc engine used on the BS4 model. Although Royal Enfield hasn't updated the technical specifications of the BS6 engine on their website, we expect the power output of the Himalayan BS6 to remain almost identical. To reiterate, the BS4 version of the Royal Enfield Himalayan was producing 24bhp and 32Nm of torque from its 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine.

Apart from the above-mentioned changes, the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 model remains unchanged. It carries forward the same mechanicals as well, this includes 21-inch and 17-inch wheels at the front and rear, long-travel suspension at both ends and a high ground clearance of 220mm.

Bookings for the new BS6 Himalayan have already started, with dealerships accepting bookings for the same. Deliveries of the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 is said to begin soon.
