Royal Enfield showcased custom models along with new colour options for Himalayan Adventure motorcycle
Indian classic motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield showcased various custom models based on their new 650cc twin cylinder motorcycles. But the most interesting part of the stall was the new colour schemes for Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 adventure motorcycle.
A total of three new colour options are showcased. Out of these three, two are in dual-tone finish and the third one is single tone. The new colours are Rock Red with Black, Lake Blue with White, and Gravel. These new colour schemes are looking quite purposeful on the go-anywhere motorcycle which is available only in three colour options including – Snow White, Granite Black, and Camouflage Sleet.
Royal Enfield Himalayan is an all-round adventure tourer as well as an off-road motorcycle. The bike gets the large 21-inch front wheel to glide through anything. The built of the Himalayan is strong and well packed to suit it for off-roading and long distance touring.
There are minimal vibrations upto 100kmph and wind protection is pretty good and when combined with a comfortable seating position, one can tour with lesser stops. Fuel tank capacity is 15 litres which ensure a range of at least 375 km with an average fuel economy of 25kmpl.
At present, the Himalayan retails at Rs 1.82 lakh ex-showroom. There is not a direct rival to the Himalayan but Hero XPulse 200 at the lower end and BMW G 310 GS on upper end give some competition.
The monopoly of RE Himalayan being threatened by the KTM 250 Adventure which is expected to carry a price tag of Rs 2.20 lakh ex-showroom. For a premium of Rs 40,000 over the Himalayan, 250 Adventure will provide more power and agility with lower kerb weight. And yes, more fun on the tour which is acceptable.
