Royal Enfield Himalayan Officially Announced With Studio Photos and Full Specifications (with video)


After showing you pictures and videos of prototypes a couple of weeks ago, we now have studio photos and specifications from the official launch of the Royal Enfield Himalayan (together with a pretty cool video at the bottom of this article). This is a relatively simply motorcycle powered by a 411cc oil-cooled single making a claimed 24.5 hp and utilizing a five-speed transmission. The Himalayan is not designed to win any drag races.

Royal Enfield designed the Himalayan to be simple, reliable and relatively inexpensive for an adventure bike. We expect the Himalayan to reach the U.S. market eventually, but the first launch will be in India a couple of months from now. Here are some photos of production units followed by specifications and a new video from Royal Enfield.
