Royal Enfield Himalayan Features:

The Royal Enfield Himalayan, in its latest update, also gets a USB charging port. Along with that, it’s equipped with an additional pod for the Tripper navigation system in its latest iteration. This is now an optional extra, available on the MIY configurator. It offers turn-by-turn navigation using your phone’s GPS. Along with it, the bike also gets a warning light on the instrument cluster and switchable ABS at the rear. It also sees the inclusion of a hazard lamp switch and a revised side stand. Other features include a digital compass, ambient temperature readout, gear position indicator, odometer and trip meter readings, fuel gauge, tachometer, and a speedometer. A bash plate is standard for extra protection along with a tail rack to accommodate an optional top box.

The bike comes to a halt using a 300mm front disc and a 240mm disc at the rear, with dual-channel switchable ABS as standard. For optimum off-road performance, it rolls on a large 21-inch front spoke wheel and a 17-inch rear unit, wrapped in dual-purpose tubed tyres. The kerb weight of the Himalayan is 199kg.

 

Royal Enfield Himalayan Rivals:

The Royal Enfield Himalayan rivals the Yezdi Adventure, KTM 250 Adventure, BMW G 310 GS, and the larger and more expensive KTM 390 Adventure. Though, for the price of a Himalayan, you can also get the KTM RC 200, Honda H’Ness CB350, and the Bajaj Dominar 400. The Dominar 400 is adept at touring but isn't as capable off-road as the Himalayan.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Pros and Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Don't Like in 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.

Himalayan Expert Review

The updated Royal Enfield Himalayan comes with a few small but useful updates, and we find whether the changes have made a difference

Royal Enfield updated the Himalayan in 2021 with a few nifty changes, making it a more feature-packed motorcycle than before. If you’re planning to buy one, you’d be glad to know that we took the bike out for a spin, and here are our thoughts:

 

Know everything about the Royal Enfield Himalayan in these links:

Launch Story:

The updated Royal Enfield Himalayan was launched in May 2021, with a few practical updates, and unfortunately, a massive price hike. Take a look at all the dope in the launch story here.

Image Gallery:

Want to take a closer look at the latest Himalayan? Worry not, here’s a detailed image gallery of the updated ADV.

Top 5 Highlights:

We’ve penned down all the important facts that you need to know about the updated Royal Enfield Himalayan, and you can check them out here.

Real-world Performance Numbers Comparison:

How does the updated Royal Enfield Himalayan fare against its predecessor? We took both the bikes out on a real-world test and here’s what we found out.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Colours Explained:

Royal Enfield also updated the Himalayan in a bevy of colour schemes. We’ve made a detailed explanation about each colour variant here.

 

Verdict:

We feel in the larger scheme of things, the updates were inconsequential considering the hefty price hike. Besides, Royal Enfield could have offer most of the new bits and pieces as accessories on the previous-gen Himalayan. We hope Royal Enfield concentrates on areas that matter and provides the Himalayan with better grunt in the next update. 

Design and Features

Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review

Purposeful and rugged. The Himalayan features the same no-frills design that it has sported right from day one, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In much the same way that George Clooney still looks smashing even after having greyed over completely. To freshen things up a little, RE has thrown in some new paint schemes, of which the dual-tone options look vibrant and youthful. Our test bike, though, came in ‘Gravel Grey’ - a matte grey option that doesn’t look too impressive in pictures but blew us away when we saw it in the flesh.

Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review

Sure, there are quite a few people out there who’d have been wishing for a more radical visual update, but hey, if something ain’t broken, don’t try and fix it, right? One area where we would’ve liked some changes is the welds on the frame. The shoddily done joints look a little amateurish and stick out like a sore thumb, taking away from the premiumness of the rest of the design. On the plus side, bits like the handlebar yoke, fuel filler cap and bar-end weights now feature a sand-blasted finish. They look very premium and feel built to last.

Engine and Performance

Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review

Royal Enfield gets a lot of flack for being stuck in the past, and yes, that argument has its merits, but for the most part, it’s quite unwarranted. It is, after all, the only Indian manufacturer building and selling a twin-cylinder motor. The Himalayan might not be powered by the 650cc engine in question (at least not yet), but its 411cc unit is plenty modern too. SOHC architecture, closed-loop fuel injection and oil-cooling all ensure that the motor is reasonably up to date and well-equipped.

The long-stroke cylinder design results in a relaxed demeanour, but not to the point of feeling sluggish or slow. Power builds linearly and peaks at the correct moment, just like a well-executed political campaign. Tractability is superb, but the top-end doesn’t feel breathless either, and the engine pulls cleanly throughout the rev range. In fact, the drop in output spelled out on paper is barely noticeable when sat aboard. Remarkable, considering that the motor is now also BS6-compliant.

Whether it’s carrying you down the highway at a steady cruise or pulling you out of slush under pouring rain, the engine always feels up to the job. But everything isn’t perfect. If you’ve got a motorcycle like this, chances are that it’s your only motorcycle, so you’re going to be using it to commute in the city as well. While we have no complaints about the motor’s performance, we did find it heating up quite a bit over prolonged periods in slow moving traffic. While this can be bothersome on the few occasions when it does happen, the engine’s refinement levels will make your life that much more comfortable on a daily basis. The motor feels smooth not just by Royal Enfield standards but even compared to most other long-stroke singles out there.

Braking and Handling

 

On paper, it seems like there’s some bad news coming up here. The BS4 version of this bike already tipped the scales at a rather hefty 195kg, and this updated bike weighs a smidgen under 200kg with its fuel tank 90 per cent full. So, has the ride and handling been compromised? Not really, no. The bike still requires a fair chunk of steering effort into the bars, but once you understand this, it tips on readily and holds its line with conviction. Whether straight upright or leaned over, the Himalayan feels thoroughly composed at all times, especially so at a cruising speed of around 90kmph on the highway.

Obviously, a bike that’s built for no roads can handle bad roads with commendable ease. In fact, the Himalayan turns you into a bit of a hooligan in the city, because even when you’re faced with the tallest of speed breakers and the deepest of potholes, slowing down isn’t really a very high priority. Just stand up and ride it out. The one issue that seems to have been carried over from the previous bike is the scraping of the main stand when riding over speed breakers with a pillion on board.

It’s still just as capable off the road as well. Sure, it's not as nimble and agile as something like a Hero XPulse, but that just means you have to plan a little further ahead, that’s all. The ample suspension travel and ground clearance mean that the roughest of surfaces are dispatched with, and even when you do run out of grip, the bike slides predictably and progressively, allowing you to maintain complete control.

Safety and Features

Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review

One of the things we like most about the Himalayan is its sheer simplicity. There are no rider modes to choose from, no fancy TFT screen, no fiddling possible with the suspension. Just kick the tyre, light the fire, and off you go. Of course, RE hasn’t skimped on the bare necessities. So you get the safety net of dual-channel ABS (rear wheel can be turned off), and a digital inset on the instrument cluster that gives you two tripmeters, the current time, average speeds and even a fuel gauge (which is quite a novelty on a single-cylinder RE).

The BS4 update brought with it fuel-injection, which obviously stays for the BS6 bike as well, along with the addition of an extra catalytic converter. In a world full of snazzy LED lights with their scything white beams, the Himalayan goes the old school route and is all the better for it. The halogen unit is powerful and has decent spread too, outperforming most of the LED examples we’ve tested on two-wheelers so far. Our bike had its beam pointing a little higher than we’d like, but that’s a two-minute fix by any mechanic worth his salt.

Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review

Another aspect that’s very important in this genre of motorcycle is luggage carrying capacity. Of course you get the run-of-the-mill add-on options of hard panniers and a top box, but since the tank shell is metal, you can use a magnetic tank bag too. And if that still isn’t enough, the frame on either side of the front of the motorcycle can be used as a mounting point for more luggage.
