More details on the Royal Enfield Himalayan


We showed you two videos of the Royal Enfield Himalayan last week. Now, Royal Enfield has plenty of other information on the bike uploaded on their site.

Perhaps the most interesting bit is this essay from Royal Enfield CEO Siddartha Lal. He doesn’t give away a lot of technical details, although he does give some useful information about the long-stroke engine, which apparently is geared for low-RPM torque, and has 10,000-km oil change intervals. Fuel capacity is 15 litres, and the front wheel is a 21-inch unit.

There’s a selection of good photos of the new bike here.

The Himalayan hasn’t been officially launched yet, and we have no dates for North American arrival, and no MSRP announced.
