Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 – specifications released ahead of launch – Motorcycle Sports Australia

One of this year’s most anticipated motorcycles, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 will soon be launched, and its homologation documents have been released, revealing some interesting details.
First of all, the most exciting part – the engine. The adventure bike gets a new 451.65cc liquid-cooled engine with 40 hp. That’s right, this is a modern adventure bike that produces an impressive amount of power, just 3 hp less than the KTM 390 Adventure. We expect it to produce around 40-45Nm, more focused on performance.
We now also know some of the bike’s dimensions, which you can see below.
Regarding the weight of the bike, the homologation document mentions that the total weight of the bike is 394kg. Considering that the new Himalayan 450 will have a load capacity of 180kg (approximately), the ADV’s running weight will be around 210kg. 
Yes, it’s quite heavy for an adventure bike, however, with its long wheelbase of 1510mm, the bike should be very stable at high speeds on highways. For reference, the KTM 390 Adventure has a wheelbase of 1430 mm. Now, it’s clear that tackling tight trails will be quite a task for the new Himalayan, but it should still be an excellent choice on faster off-road terrain – courtesy of the 21/19-inch wheel configuration, the riding stance and the suspension.
We expect the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 to be launched in the coming months, probably to coincide with this year’s Rider Mania event, scheduled for November 24-26.
