Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Rally spec: All you need to know – The Financial Express

Royal Enfield recently revealed the all-new Himalayan 450 in its full glory. The latest iteration of the adventure tourer will hit the Indian market on November 7. Like its predecessor, Enfield will offer a wide range of accessories for the new Himalayan which are offered under its separate vertical Genuine Motorcycle Accessories.
The Chennai-based bikemaker has broadly categorised the accessories line of the new Himalayan 450 into two segments– Adventure and Rally. Accessories for the both segments can be availed at the time of buying via the company’s MIY programme. In this story, we focus on the Rally spec Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 and the accessories offered under it.
As the name indicates, the Rally version of Himalayan 450 focuses on amplifying the off-road performance of the motorcycle. In this regard, Royal Enfield offers accessories such as a single-piece rally seat, a rally handlebar, and rally back panels. The rally seat is pegged at a height of 855mm. There’s also an arrow exhaust on offer for the European market but not available in India for the moment.
In addition, one can opt for accessories such as a headlight grille, an engine sump guard and an aluminium radiator cover which are common to both Adventure and Rally streams. That said, it must be noted that other than the common accessories, all the add-ons may not be available at the time of launch since the homologation process for these accessories is still underway.
Royal Enfield is yet to declare prices of these accessories which are expected to be revealed after the bike’s official launch. However, deliveries are likely to commence from January 2024 onwards. Expect prices of these new accessories to be marginally higher than their outgoing units.
The biggest highlight of the new Himalayan is the brand new Sherpa 450 series engine. This all-new 452cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor churns out 40 hp at 8,000 rpm and 40 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. This motor is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a wet plate slip and assist clutch. There are two ride modes on offer– Performance and Eco. 
Hardware configurations include a twin spar tubular steel frame with double sided swingarm sitting on a Showa-sourced suspension setup featuring a 43mm upside down front forks and a rear monoshock. Braking duties are handled by 320mm front and 270 rear disc brakes assisted by dual-channel ABS. It also benefits from switchable rear ABS for off-roading purposes.
