Royal Enfield Himalayan Review
Royal Enfield Himalayan Overview
The Himalayan is the first-ever attempt by Royal Enfield in making a true blue adventure motorcycle, which is now one of the most full-fledged adventure motorcycles in the nation today. The Royal Enfield Himalayan is currently being offered in three colour options – Snow, Graphite, and Sleet. While the Sleet variant is priced at PHP 326,000, the other two colour options are relatively more affordable at PHP 299,000.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Design
The Royal Enfield Himalayan has a very bare-bones approach to the aspect of design, as it has a very simple and basic design that is easy to the eyes, and not at all flashy or busy. However, for this very reason, the Himalayan looks a bit incompetent from certain angles, which are a turn-off for those who expect novelty and beefiness in a modern motorcycle.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan welcomes you with a big round headlamp, which along with the big transparent visor placed just above it, are positioned at quite a height. The headlamp is pretty basic and is devoid of LED lighting elements. The motorcycle comes fitted with a body-colored mudguard attached just below the headlamp, which along with an additional conventional fender above the front wheel, makes it look purposeful.
The sides of the headlamp do get tubular attachments for luggage mounting purposes, which extend towards the fuel tank as well. The fuel tank here is a rather small looking unit, and comes with slightly squared knee recesses for ample placement of your knees and giving good grip. The engine as well as spoke wheels (21-inch front and 17-inch rear) are finished in an all-black theme, with the large exhaust pipe getting a mild gold treatment.
The trapezoidal side cowls get the name of the motorcycle engraved on them and are surrounded by the tubular portions of the frame. The tubular frame gets a duplex design, forming a base for the split theme for the seats, which look sporty yet are quite comfortable. With a large luggage rack and mount behind the rear seat, it looks purposeful. The small rectangular LED tail lamp is nestled in the tailpiece and the large rounded rear fender also gets a license plate mount with turn indicators as well.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan welcomes you with a high set handlebar with good quality switches and grips, as well as a slightly dated looking but super-comprehensive instrument console. This meter console has analog dials for the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and compass, and LCD panels for all the real-time data on the go as well as odometer, trip meters, and gear indicator.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Ride & Handling
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is equipped with heavy-duty suspension setup, comprising of long travel hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and an adjustable mono-shock at the rear. Riding on tall wheels, especially the one at the front, the Himalayan gives proper go-anywhere riding experience.
With a high placed handlebar and mildly rear-set footpegs, it has the perfect ergonomics for an adventure motorcycle. The braking duties are taken care of by a 300mm disc at the front and 240mm disc at the rear.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine & Fuel Consumption
The Royal Enfield Himalayan has the biggest single-cylinder engine in the current lineup of motorcycles from Royal Enfield. The four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected, 411cc engine of the Himalayan is coupled to a five-speed gearbox and pumps out 24.7 PS of power and 32 Nm of torque. While the engine feels torquey across the rev range, the engine has notable vibrations at higher rpms.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Braking & Safety
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a pretty basic bike when it comes to safety aids, the motorcycle packs in the crucial presence of a dual-channel ABS.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Verdict
The Royal Enfield Himalayan might look too basic to the eyes, but its real beauty lies in its supreme capabilities of tacking bad roads, thanks to a torquey engine and long-travel fully adjustable suspension and tall wheels with good off-road spec tires.
