I personally love this bike for long ride. Royal Enfield Himalayan is a commuter bike available in 3 variants in india. Its lowest version starts from a price of ₹1,89,538 (ex-showroom) and the top version from a price of ₹1,94,127 (ex-showroom). Royal Enfield Himalayan generates 24.3 bhp of power and 32 nm of torque from its 411cc engine. Single cylinder engine of Himalayan has a 5 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, the top variant of Royal Enfield Himalayan also has an anti-locking braking system. This 199 kg bike is available in 6 colours.

Royal Enfield has worked a lot on improving the refinement of the 411cc single-cylinder engine. The current BS6 power unit is certainly a lot smoother than the first one we sampled in 2016. The engine produces 24.31PS and 32Nm, 0.13PS lower than its BS4 guise. No changes to the five-speed gearbox though. The Himalayan BS6 remains a capable off-roader, suspended by long-travel suspension units at both ends and it is the only affordable adventure tourer in India to get a 21-/17-inch spoke wheel setup that comes shod with dual-purpose CEAT tyres. Braking hardware comprises a front 300mm disc with a twin-piston caliper and on the rear wheel, you get a 240mm disc with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard with switchable ABS finally offered on the Himalayan.

There aren’t many features to talk about the Himalayan BS6. The headlight is a simple bulb unit and the instrument cluster looks virtually the same as before, although there are a few more tell tale lights and an additional toggle switch on the console for the switchable ABS. Yes, part of the extra goodies offered with the BS6 transition is switchable ABS, boosting its adventure credentials.


We have always been impressed with the simple and functional design of the Royal Enfield Himalyan. The new colours make it look more delectable, heightening the appeal of the adventure motorcycle.

Royal Enfield is also offering a three-year warranty with the new Himalayan. In terms of competition, the motorcycle goes up against the BMW G310 GS and the KTM 390 Adventure in India.

In the affordable adventure touring genre, the Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 locks horns with the KTM 390 Adventure, the BMW G310 GS and the Kawasaki Versys-x 300. All three rivals are significantly pricier than the Enfield motorcycle. The Hero Xpluse 200 is an even more affordable adventure motorcycle but lacks the touring capabilities of the Himalayan. Hero MotoCorp is working on a mid- displacement adventure bike that will rival the Enfield. Check out our other posts on www.sportyengines.com
