Ahead of its official launch, we have now been allowed to reveal the technical specifications of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450. The new Himalayan debuts Royal Enfield’s first thoroughly modern liquid-cooled engine, dubbed the ‘Sherpa 450’. This 451.65cc engine makes 40hp at 8,000rpm and 40Nm of torque at 5,500rpm, making it the torquiest Indian single-cylinder engine.
The Himalayan features a 6-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch. The all-new twin-spar frame is suspended by an open-cartridge USD fork and preload-adjustable monoshock, both supplied by Showa. With 200mm of wheel travel and an impressive ground clearance of 230mm, the Himalayan is ready to take on any terrain.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450: Specs, Features, and Pricing
Equipped with 21/17-inch wire-spoke rims and bespoke tubed CEAT rubber, the Himalayan ensures a comfortable and stable ride. The seat height ranges between 825-845mm with the standard seat, while opting for the lower seat reduces it to 805-825mm. Despite its rugged build, the Himalayan weighs 198kg with a fully fuelled 17 litre tank.
Braking duties are handled by a single 320mm disc at the front and a 270mm disc at the back, supplied by ByBre. The Himalayan comes with dual-channel ABS as standard and the rear ABS can be turned off when required. The bike is available in five colour options across its three variants.
One of the standout features of the new Himalayan is the Royal Enfield’s first colour TFT dash, which can be paired to your smartphone via Bluetooth. It is also the first Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 to have three riding modes – Eco, Performance (with rear ABS on), and Performance (with rear ABS off). All-LED lighting is standard on the Himalayan, with the taillight integrated into the rear indicators, similar to premium BMW and Harley-Davidson bikes.
The pricing for the new Himalayan will be revealed on November 7, and our review will be published on November 10. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this exciting new adventure motorcycle from Royal Enfield.
