Royal Enfield Himalayan First Ride Expert Review BikeDekho

Hello and welcome back to BikeDekho the adventure touring segment in the Indian biking industry has often been ignored by manufacturers but that is till Royal Enfield told us about the Himalayan and ever since the adventure riders like me have been wanting to ride the bike and what better way to do that than in snowy Himachal Pradesh awesome roads, awesome terrains and I assume an awesome bike as well

the Royal Enfield Himalayan is one of its kind motorcycle it looks different, it rides different and of course it feels different from all the other Royal Enfields the Himalayan breaks all the stereotypes to become something that Indian markets always needed the Himalayan has this no nonsense looks it looks simple and yet purposeful it is an adventure motorcycle that can get things done with ease the Himalayan has a round head lamp with adjustablevisor on top to protect the riders from oncoming wind the 15 litre tank is not shaped in the most elegant way

but has mounts to carry extra liter of fuel for the journey to the unknown the visible chassis is all new that cages the all new oil cooled engine that is painted in black the double seat get provisions for panniers as well this minimalistic design makes the Himalayan a great touring tool the negative print stickers on the tank and frontandrear mud guards adds a classic look to the motorcycle the Himalayan also gets an advance console that puts out every information that you will ever need during a motorcycle trip

the console has a analog speedometer a tachometer and a fuel gauge while all the other information like temperature, average speed, time are shown on a LCD screen within the speedometer the Himalayan also features a compass the wheels are also of different sizes the front one is a 21 inch, while at the rear you get a 17 inch wheel now both the wheels have spokes and get Ceat dualpurpose tyres

the gear lever and the rear brake lever are madeup of steel without any rubber cover, to add ruggedness to the machine even the rubber on the foot pegs are removable to add more grip during wet conditions the Himalayan also gets a first ever monoshock coming from Royal Enfield factory while the front wheels are attached to telescopic suspension it also gets disc brakes for both front and rear wheels but as of now, ABS is missing overall the Himalayan is not made for the looks

it is built for a purpose and succeeds very well doing that just what we found out around Kufri the new Himalayan draws power from anallnew engine the LS410 engine is a long stroke motor the single cylinder unit gets oil cooling systemalong with air cooling it uses a two valve single overhead cam to boost the lower end power of the motorcycle and has a carburetor that is good for 12000 feet in stock tuning it is the smoothest engine ever from Royal Enfield
