RE Himalayan Sleet edition can now be brought offline at dealerships, but with only the paint scheme as standard
RE Himalayan Sleet: The special edition version was initially started with an Explorer Kit as part of this bundle and has been priced at $ 2.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The Sleet variant comes as a third paint choice on the experienced bike and can be priced at a premium of $ 3600 within the normal black and white colors. The Himalayan Sleet variant paint scheme takes inspiration from the snowcapped summit mountains of – you guessed it the Himalayas.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet is only a cosmetic update for today and brings no adjustments to the mechanicals of this bike. Power comes in the exact same 411 cc single-cylinder motor which obtained fuel-injection this past year. The engine is tuned to make 24 bhp at 6500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4500 rpm, while paired into some 5-speed gearbox.
Suspension duties are handled from the long-travel telescopic forks up front along with a long-travel monoshock set up at the back, the latter being first for any bicycle from RE. The ADV rides a 21-inch spoked wheel in the front along with an 18-inch wheel in the back, each of which gets double purpose tyres.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet variant was initially sold online to just 500 clients, albeit using an Explorer Kit. This kit is currently available as discretionary and contains 26-liter water resistant aluminum panniers, pannier mounting rails, powder-coated motor shield, off-road design aluminum handlebar with cross-brace, leg shield and bar-end weights. The kit can be bought separately for an additional cost of $ 31,900 (inclusive of matching fees) in dealerships.
Launched in 2016, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is the most inexpensive adventure bike in India now and has appreciated the monopoly of types. Nevertheless, the bicycle will probably face competition in the Hero XPulse after this season since the less expensive offering, even though with just a 200 cc engine.
