The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been priced attractively to lure buyers

Ever since the first spy shots of the Royal Enfield Himalayan went viral, Royal Enfield has successfully managed to create a whole lot of anxiety. And not just among loyal RE fans, but also with every auto enthusiast and layman alike. Well, all our questions were answered just prior to the 2016 Auto Expo and the last one has now been answered too.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan price at Rs. 1,78,872/- (on-road, Mumbai), is easily the cheapest adventure tourer in India. And not just an adventure tourer by name as it puts itself in the class of those motorcycles that can take on almost every accessible and inaccessible terrain. All of this at a price that is well within the reach of your next-door enthusiast.

We had previously brought to you an exclusive pre-launch review of the Himalayan, you can also take a look at it here: Royal Enfield Himalayan Review. As most of us already know, the Himalayan is powered by a 411cc, oil-cooled engine that produces 24.5 PS of power at 6500 RPM and 32 Nm of torque between 4000-4500 RPM, mated to a 5-speed transmission. The figures are typical Royal Enfield like, as one would expect, delivering maximum torque in the low and mid range.

Now this motorcycle is one which none of us can ignore. It is created specifically for the off-road enthusiast, but what RE also insist is that it’s no mud even on the tarmac and can easily qualify for a long distance touring vehicle. Now that is one thing we will find out for sure in our in-depth review, but for now, at this price point, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is sure to set the numbers soaring high, as they have surely created a new segment which will attract young as well as mature buyers.
