RE Himalayan 452 to Offer a Strong Top-End?
A recent video shared by the Bunny Punia YouTube channel showcases a test mule of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 equipped with two hard panniers and a top box, which will be available as separate accessories. However, the accessories themselves aren’t the main focus of the video. The Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 test mule exhibited remarkable high-speed capabilities during a recent highway test. Bunny Punia captured this test mule’s performance while driving a Nissan Magnite AMT. In the video footage we have here, the Magnite was cruising at an indicated speed of 140 km/h, and the Himalayan 452 test mule effortlessly outpaced the pursuing car.
This achievement underscores the impressive high-speed cruising capabilities of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452. This should prove to be a noteworthy attribute of the motorcycle. As it prepares to compete with the KTM 390 Adventure and Triumph Scrambler 400X, this capability positions the Himalayan 452 favorably in the market.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 Adventure will mark the debut of the brand’s new 452cc engine. The new motor is a product of extensive research and development efforts. This powerplant incorporates liquid-cooling technology, featuring a sizable radiator to efficiently dissipate heat. It also appears to utilize a DOHC (Double Overhead Camshaft) configuration. Plus, it could sport a 4-valve head. This should lead to a power output of approximately 40 bhp and 35 Nm of torque.
The upcoming RE Himalayan 452 is set to feature several noteworthy upgrades. These include a new Trellis frame, an upside-down front fork (USD), and a monoshock suspension at the rear. In addition, the video provides a glimpse of the exhaust note of the motorcycle. The new Himalayan will boast larger dimensions compared to the current model. It will measure 2,245 mm in length, 852 mm in width, and featuring a wheelbase of 1,510 mm. These dimensions signify that the upcoming iteration will be longer and wider than its predecessor.
