Royal Enfield Himalayan has faced a number of issues with regard to quality and performance. The BS3 (Bharat Stage) compliant RE Himalayan is no longer on sale and not a single unit has been delivered in the past 3 months. The temporarily retired RE Himalayan is all set to hit showrooms soon with a fuel injected, BS-IV engine.
In developed nations, where emission norms are stricter than those in India, it is mandatory for Royal Enfield to offer Himalayan with Fuel Injection, instead of carburettor as is seen on the India-spec model.
Even in North America, Royal Enfield Himalayan will be launched with ABS as well as FI(Fuel Injection). Similarly, Indian government is on the verge of implementing similar laws in the country. This has pushed Royal Enfield to launch updated Himalayan with FI and ABS.
Named after the mighty Himalayas of India, Royal Enfield Himalayan features a relaxed seating postion, which proves to be a boon on long rides, especially the one’s with bad raods. Long suspension travel with off-road tyres give the bike a very rugged appeal. Instrument panel consists of analog as well as digital meters.
Powered by a new 410 cc single cylinder engine, Royal Enfield Himalayan is an entry level adventure tourer. The engine is rated to deliver 25 PS and 32 Nm torque via a 5-speed gearbox.
The fuel injected version of Himalayan motorcycle was previously showcased EICMA 2016. As per speculations, the BS-IV compliant Royal Enfield Himalayan is expected to hit the showrooms by July.
