The teaser picture shows the third quarter view of the all-new Himalayan with the Himlayans in the background. The motorcycle features a white paint job with the graphics of the Himalayas outlined on its fuel tank, side panel, and rear fender. It also gets a familiar metal frame, an LED headlamp, a front fender and a large beak-style fender, USD fork protectors, a split seat arrangement, LED indicators, and knobby tyres.
New Royal Enfield Himalayan: Engine
A recently leaked document revealed that the new Himalayan 450 will get a 451.65cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine generating 40PS at 8,000rpm. Although the torque figure is not available at the moment, we expect it to produce around 40-45Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the engine will come paired with a six-speed gearbox.

It is also likely to get dual-channel ABS, upside down front forks, a rear monoshock, traction control, slip-and-assist clutch, and a single-disc brake at the front and rear (perhaps the 320mm front and 300mm rear setup brake setup from the Super Meteor 650).
