Royal Enfield Himalayan Adventure Bike

Feb 8, 2016

Royal Enfield has tapped into our urge to explore, teaming up with professional Indian motorcycle rider CS Santosh to build the Himalayn – an adventure bike that won’t break the bank. Taking over 2 years to develop, with extensive testing throughout the Himalayas (hence the name), the crew has created a motorcycle that’s as comfortable off-road as it is to ride in the city.

Powering the 2-wheeler is an LS410 single-cylinder four stroke engine that’s been designed with simplicity in mind. The 411cc power plant pumps out 24.5 ponies to the rear wheel through a five-speed gearbox. The motorcycle itself is built with much of the same design principals as the engine; simple and versatile. Inspired by the touring bikes of yesteryear, this thing has been outfitted with aluminum panniers to tote your gear through any terrain. With a steel semi-double cradle, and suspension taken care of by a couple 41mm forks, a rear shock, and attachments for side-cases & supports, this bike will go wherever you take it. Royal Enfield expects to ship this out to showrooms around April, where they’ll retail for $3,000. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
