BS6 Royal Enfield Himalayan Image Gallery
Here's a closer look at the updated B6-compliant ADV
First things first, let’s take a look at the biggest update. The 411cc oil-cooled motor is now BS6 compliant and delivers 24.3PS. That’s a drop of 0.5PS over the BS4 model. However, the torque output remains the same at 32Nm.
The visual difference on the BS6 motor is the inclusion of a catalytic convertor.
The exhaust also gets an O2 sensor that detects the presence of air in the exhaust system and recirculates the unburnt exhaust gasses back to the combustion chamber for cleaner emissions.
Other updates include four new colour options in addition to the white and black paint offered before. Know more about the colours here.
The dual-tone colour variants gets two shades on the fuel tank. Here's a closer look at the Rock Red paint option.
And here's a closer look at the Lake Blue option. The dual-tone variants get a horizontal silver stripe at the top of the fuel tank too.
Besides the new colours, there are other subtle cosmetic updates like the revised tail lamp, which is quite similar to the Interceptor's brake light.
New features include a hazard lamp switch. It is useful if you are stranded and need to make other riders aware of your presence on the road or trail.
The BS6 Himalayan gets knuckle guards as part of its accessory list. This safety feature is quite useful if you hit narrow trails often.
You can also equip the motorcycle with optional touring panniers. The ones pictured here are weatherproof, lockable and can be easily taken off the frame too.
Other than the engine and cosmetic updates, the underpinnings remain the same as the BS4 model.
It retains the same braking setup with dual channel ABS and continues to be shod with dual-purpose Ceat Gripp tyres.
With prices starting at Rs 1,86,811 (ex-showroom Delhi), the BS6 Himalayan is around Rs 6,000 more expensive than the BS4 models. We will be riding the new Himalayan soon, so stay tuned for our review.
