Royal Enfield seems to be gearing up to launch a new version of the Himalayan adventure-touring motorcycle in India. The latest spy images that have surfaced online showcases a test mule with an on-road biased set-up of the Himalayan.
From the spy pics, we could notice several changes on the test bike over the outgoing model. This includes a smaller front wheel, missing front jerry-can holder frame, fork gators, tall windscreen and the raised front mudguard. The test mule also features a tank shroud replacing the front frame.
Apart from these changes, the new motorcycle continues to borrow its mechanicals and other trims from the outgoing ADV version of the Himalayan. The test mule continues to use spoked rims, an upswept exhaust, and an upright seating position with a raised handlebar.
The test mule is also using the same Panniers, that is currently offered as an accessory under the Make-It-Your-Own programme. The company is expected to offer the new variant of the Himalayan with a couple on-road biased accessories as well.
The outgoing Himalayan is powered by a single-cylinder SOHC, air/oil-cooled, fuel-injected 411cc engine. The upcoming on-road version of the motorcycle is also expected to feature the same engine.
The 411cc unit produces a maximum of 24.3bhp at 6500rpm and a peak torque of 32Nm between 4000rpm and 4500rpm; paired with a five-speed manual transmission.
The 2021 Himalayan is also offered with the Tripper navigation system which will continue to be a separate unit placed next to the instrument cluster. It uses a small TFT colour display to provide turn-by-turn navigation once paired with the smartphone via a mobile application. The Tripper navigation can be activated by pairing a smartphone to the Royal Enfield application available for both Android or iOS users.
Thoughts About The New Royal Enfield Himalayan Variant Spied Testing With Several Changes
Earlier this year, Royal Enfield updated the Himalayan adventure-touring motorcycle with new paint schemes and featured the brand’s Tripper Navigation. However, the company seems to have received a market demand for an on-road biased version of its adventure-touring motorcycle.
If launched, the new on-road version of the Himalayan could be priced below the adventure-touring version of the motorcycle. It could also receive several exclusive accessories along with new paint schemes to tell it apart.
