Exclusive: Royal Enfield Himalayan Deliveries Temporarily Suspended
Break no sweat, the deliveries will commence with the new iteration of the Himalayan.
It seems that the 2021 iteration of the Royal Enfield Himalayan isn’t too far away. How? As per our sources, Royal Enfield has temporarily halted the Himalayan deliveries as the next batch will likely get all the updates that have been recently seen on the test mules.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350's Tripper Navigation shown for reference.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan test bike was spotted with an additional tripper navigation system. It’s the same smartphone-compatible, turn-by-turn navigation system that Royal Enfield has used for the Meteor 350. The brand is likely to introduce three new colours for the Himalayan -- Pine Green, Granite Black and Mirage Silver.

Apart from the navigation system and the new colours, Royal Enfield also seems to have tweaked a few bits on the Himalayan to make it more comfortable. The seat now gets a denser foam and a brown colour, while the front rack is redesigned to not hinder the rider’s knees.
As per dealers, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan is likely to launch between February and March. Thanks to all the updates mentioned above, we expect a hike of Rs 3,000 on the current price of the Himalayan that’s between Rs 1.91 lakh and 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). No mechanical change will be made to the Himalayan’s powertrain, braking, and the suspension.
