Royal Enfield has launched the 2021 Himalayan in the Indian market. The Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 is now offered with a price tag of Rs 2.01 Lakh, ex-showroom (Chennai). The new model comes with a host of new features and equipment, along with three new colour options as well.
Bookings for the Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 is now open across all dealerships in India. Customers can also make their bookings for the new Himalayan online via the brand's official website. Deliveries for the 2021 Himalayan are also expected to begin shortly.
Starting off with the cosmetic changes, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 carries forward the same design and silhouette as its previous models, however, there are a few minor updates. These include updated seats which now offer improved comfort and riding ergonomics, especially for long-distance touring, updated rear carrier and front metal frame and the addition of a new windscreen as well.
However, the most significant cosmetic update is the introduction of the three new paint scheme options on 2021 Himalayan. The off-roader is now available in Pine Green, Granite Black (dual-tone with matte & gloss black) and Mirage Silver. All three colour options will be sold alongside the existing options of Gravel Grey, Rock Red & Lake Blue.
The 2021 Himalayan now also features Royal Enfield's ‘Tripper Navigation'. The new simple turn-by-turn navigation pod has been fitted alongside the motorcycles semi-digital instrument cluster. The new Tripper Navigation is powered by Google Maps and is connected to the rider's smartphone via Bluetooth and a dedicated Royal Enfield app.
Finally, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan is now part of the brand's ‘Make-it-Yours (MiY) initiative. This allows Himalayan customers to personalise and accessories their motorcycles, according to their requirements and liking. The MiY initiative is available for customers across all platforms - the RE app, website and even at dealerships.
Vinod K Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield said
"In a short span of just 5 years, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has opened up a new category within global adventure touring, has successfully established itself as a truly global motorcycle, and has been among the most sought after motorcycles for Royal Enfield across several geographies."
"The originally developed 2016 Himalayan was a category first, and was a very versatile and accessible motorcycle. Over the years, together with feedback from our riding community, we have consistently evolved the Himalayan in design and functionality, and improved the overall ride experience."
"This has resonated very well with millions of adventure enthusiasts across the world, who now have new variants to choose from. With today's launch, we are confident to further fuel the adventure touring space across the world."
Apart from the above, no other changes have been made on the 2021 Himalayan. The updated motorcycle continues to be powered by the same BS6-compliant engine as before. This comes in the form of a 411cc single-cylinder SOHC air-cooled unit. It produces 24.3bhp and 32Nm of peak torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle also continues to use the same 41mm telescopic suspension setup at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Both offer 200mm and 180mm of travel, respectively. The motorcycle rides on 21-inch wheels at the front and 17-inch wheels at the back, with 90/90 front and 120/90 rear tyre profiles.
Braking is via 300mm disc at the front and 240mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS as standard. The 2021 Himalayan continues to offer ‘Switchable ABS' as standard, first introduced with the BS6 update last year.
