Royal Enfield Himalayan 452: 5 Things You MUST Know – ZigWheels

The hype for the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is incredible, and with its colour options being spied recently, we’re excited for it; so much so that some of us at ZigWheels are considering buying it. And we’re sure it’s the same with many of you. So while you wait for the ADV to land in India, here’s a quick lowdown on five important things about it that you must know: 

After endless spyshots, Royal Enfield itself showed us what the bike looks like in its teaser last week, and it does look really nice! It looks sleeker and slightly more compact than the current Himalayan while maintaining the overall rugged look. On the whole, it does look like a large-capacity adventure bike and we’re sure it’ll have plenty of road presence. 

The Himalayan 452 will be the first Royal Enfield bike to pack a liquid-cooled engine. And in fact, recently leaked homologation documents have even revealed that it’ll make a solid 40PS, which is a LOT more than the current Himalayan. And while the torque figures haven’t been revealed, we expect it to be around 40-45Nm as well, ensuring there’s good bottom-end grunt.

Along with a liquid-cooled engine, the Himalayan will also pack another first for an RE: a TFT console. YouTuber Itchy Boots got a chance to ride the pre-production bike to Ladakh and her video showed that the bike gets a lovely round TFT with a really clean layout. It even gets integrated Google Maps-powered full-fledged navigation and it looks very premium and nice. The switch on the right also shows that the bike could even get cruise control! 

The ADV rolls on a 21-/18-inch wheel setup which seems to be wrapped in Ceat Gripp dual-purpose tyres. Now, while these spoke wheels will likely get tube tyres, Royal Enfield could offer tubeless tyres, at least as an optional accessory. The most affordable bike in India to get spoke wheels with tubeless tyres is the V-Strom 650XT (apart from some of the Moto Morini bikes), which cost Rs 8.85 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. So now, to get the same feature on a bike that’ll likely cost one-third of it would be quite incredible!  

Royal Enfield is all set to launch the Himalayan 452 on November 7, and we think it could be priced at around Rs 2.80 lakh, ex-showroom. It’ll then rival bikes like the KTM 390 Adventure and the upcoming Hero XPulse 400.
