After the price hike of the Meteor 350, Royal Enfield has turned to the Himalayan to increase its price. However, it is to be noted that this is the second hike in price that the adventure tourer has got in the last two months.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is now around Rs. 5,000 more expensive across the variants. So now, the prices start at Rs. 2.10 for the base model, while reaching up to Rs. 2.18 lakhs for the premium paint versions.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is pretty much a modern adventure motorcycle, thanks to the 2021 updates. It has the Tripper navigation system that first appeared with the Meteor 350 and now makes its way to the new Classic 350. This system works with Google Maps and shows turn-by-turn navigation.
Apart from the electronics, there aren’t any other changes made to the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan. The aesthetics, design, and feel remain the same. Even the engine under the hood is also the same. This means there is still a 411cc engine producing 24.3 bhp of power at 6,500 RPM and a peak torque of 32 Nm at 4,500 RPM. The power is sent down to the ground via a 5-speed gearbox. The 15-litre fuel tank offers a long riding range for the highways.
Another highlighting addition to this new RE Himalayan is the addition of switchable ABS, which makes it a better handler based on the riding grounds, highway, or off-road. Also, the 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels make for a great combination when it comes to taking the less trained roads.
