2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan Spotted, Features Tripper Navigation
After the Meteor 350, it looks like it is the turn of the firm's go-anywhere bike to receive the feature.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan has been spotted on test recently featuring the firm’s Tripper Navigation system.
Introduced first on the Meteor 350, the turn-by-turn navigation system is powered by Google Maps and the Royal Enfield app that connects with a smartphone through Bluetooth.
It was only a matter of time before other Royal Enfield motorcycles received the features and looks like the Himalayan is first in line.
However, the position of the Tripper Navigation pod on the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan spotted test mule is not great. But it cannot be avoided since the adventure motorcycle already had a cluttered instrument cluster.
We do not know if the additional pod will be inserted like the one seen on the test mule when its offered to customers or if the whole cluster will be revised to house the extra display in a better manner.
Painted in the pleasant Lake Blue colour, the Himalayan test mule does not feature any more changes, for the adventure motorcycle had only received an update last year.
No mechanical changes are expected either. Thus, the 411cc motor that puts out 24.3 BHP and 32 Nm will continue to propel the bike and it will come mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Similarly, the suspension and braking hardware are unlikely to be touched for now.
Expect the asking price of the bike to increase with the addition of the Tripper Navigation feature, while the firm might also add new colour schemes to keep the bike looking fresh.
