2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan arrives on February 11
Royal Enfield has started the teaser campaign for its next offering, the updated Himalayan, which will be launched tomorrow. What comes in with the new year are new colour options, three to be precise - White, Silver and Green. Importantly, Royal Enfield will be introducing its Tripper Navigation TFT screen on the Himalayan, which we believe was much needed for it being an adventure motorcycle. Apart from these two things, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will remain unchanged in terms of mechanicals. However, it is being said that RE might bump up the prices of the Himalayan.
In terms of specifications, the single-cylinder, 4 stroke, SOHC, air-cooled, fuel-injected 411cc motor puts out 24.3PS at 6,500rpm and generates a torque of 32 Nm at 4,000 to 4,500rpm, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
