Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Royal Enfield Himalayan

    • Motor has (nearly) retained its output and feels just as quick, despite meeting BS6.
    • Certain components look and feel more rugged and premium.
    • Truckloads of suspension travel and ground clearance, as always.

    Hero XPulse 200

    • Lightweight and easy to manage off-road
    • Adequate suspension travel and ground clearance
    • Feature-rich

    Royal Enfield Himalayan

    • An already heavy motorcycle has become even heavier.
    • Updates are milder than some would’ve hoped for.
    • The front screen has significant optical distortion, and can cause buffeting.

    Hero XPulse 200

    • A few more ponies would’ve gone a long way
    • Feels stressed at highway cruising speeds
    • Build quality is not the best
