Royal Enfield Himalayan Recalled!


Royal Enfield enjoys quite a cult following in India. Its models like the Classic and the Bullet have achieved stellar success and a huge fan following. Other than having established a strong foothold in India, the manufacturer has also fared pretty well in the export markets. Having launched the Continental GT 535 Cafe Racer in 2013, the manufacturer came up with another all-new model earlier this year. Christened as the Royal Enfield ‘Himalayan’, the new motorcycle has been priced at INR 1.55 lacs (ex-Mumbai). The Himalayan is the first-ever purpose-built adventure touring motorcycle from Royal Enfield. The latest to have emerged on the Himalayan is that RE has issued a recall for its latest bike owing to issues with the engine’s tappet. Read on for Royal Enfield Himalayan price and launch details-

RE Himalayan was unveiled at an official event prior to the Auto Expo 2016. However, the Royal Enfield Himalayan launch took place only in March-end. You can visit the nearest RE dealership for details on price, booking and test drive.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Price

The Royal Enfield Himalayan price has been kept very competitive and the new bike costs INR 1.55 lacs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). On-road, the Royal Enfield Himalayan costs INR 1.78 lacs (Mumbai). Earlier, it was announced that the Himalayan will not be sold in Delhi as it is not BS IV compliant. However, that ban has now been lifted and the motorcycle has gone on sale priced at INR 1.76 lacs (on-road, New Delhi). As we guessed, the Royal Enfield Himalayan Price has been pretty aggressive.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Engine Specification

Royal Enfield is said to have invested INR 500 crores on the development of its upcoming product range and a part of this investment will go into setting up of two technology centers which will work on new product development and improving the quality of all Royal Enfield motorcycles. The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been developed in conjunction with Harris Performance, the renowned British performance specialists RE acquired last year. The all-new 411cc motor that powers the bike has been developed in-house. It churns out 24.5 bhp @ 6500 rpm and 32 Nm @ 4000-4500 rpm. In order to reduce vibrations, this motor will be equipped with a counter-balancer. This could be RE’s most refined engine unit till date.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Suspension Specification

The rear suspension features a mono shock, a first for Royal Enfield, while the front suspension duties are handled by long travel telescopic forks. The Himalayan rides on 21-inch wheels and gets disc brakes at both ends. However, there will be no ABS on offer. Royal Enfield also took inputs from CS Santosh, Indian Endurance biker, and he commented on the Himalayan saying, “Most of the times you have motorcycles that do well on the street but as soon as you take them off road, they don’t seem to fit in. (With the Himalayan) I was surprised because I think it felt natural to be off-road as well. Just the way it was sitting between my legs it felt good because I’ve been used to rally bikes and it didn’t feel strange at all. For a common man, it will not be intimidating at all.”

  4. Should pay more attention on problems as most of the people says about REs and need technological advancement in product launched. Lengfh of every REs model is quite short which gives a ugly look. Please do something so that we do not have to look for other bikes.

  5. I don’t understand what exactly u guys mean I totally disagree re has been there since the times of our forefathers with the same respect they have now re is a bike of class it separates the men from the noise instead of wasting time to key in negative things about a well known company u can all chill out…… N just to remind y’all wat technology does is exactly how unsafe ktms are…. So might as well be as hard as a rock……. Respect re!!!

  6. RE ko apna old model bhi market me ( left side brake wala) rakhna chiye . asli bullet ki felling usi me saati hai.

  7. WHY THE SILENCER HAS A 90′ degree first bend near tbe engine and behind the front wheel ?
    ALL OTHER ADVENTURE AND OFF ROAD BIKES HAVE A 45′ degree first bend so that it will not hit larger stones and pavement afrer the front wheel clears rhe Silencer will get stuck there !
    RE staff should see other similar bikes and point it to Mr CEO, it simes that he is surrounded by flatters. The H bike is good except this Frame and Silencer design. I want to buy it if they fix this mistake.

  8. Kawasaki Versys, hyosung gt, Honda african Adventure all have their Silwncers and frame at 45′ degees to ground at the first bend.
    I will be the first one to buy Himalayan in cash if RE fix this fundmental design and make it like all the other top world manufacturers.
    Mr.Sidlal or new ceo me at 9898388509 if u think my suggestions can be of any help to u.

  9. Only high price that’s its… new technology… digital speedometer no fuel injection….plz see the bikes in the market…like Yamaha….suzuki……honda…..ktm….and many more…. They are offering more tech n with low price……god bless to royal Enfield

  10. beautiful piece of naked and rugged machine that can deliver best in the uncomfortable road conditions with comfortable ride.

  11. i completely disagree with all negative reviews and comments about re. when you buy an re, they tell you to kick start the bike instead of using the self starter for the first instance. you dont follow the advice and then you start complaining about the battery. and if you people are unhappy with the mileage, then why dont you stay away of re? go for a bi-cycle instead, they come cheaper and you dont have to worry about mileage any more. and those who complaint about the features know this, classic and such other models from re bears the proudest heritage of war time era, when our forefathers used to roll on the battlefields riding these beasts. pay some respects to re or dont even roam around a re showroom.

  12. Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    What a beautiful all terrain machine. Simple, natural, strong, reliable, versatile, equipped, customizable. Hat off. Without a doubt this motorcycle is a success story. Congratulations to all teams for their constant efforts. It paid. It’s a new chapter and the creation of a fresh reliable image for the old company that English forgot to shut down.

    This motorcycle will be a hit because it is very well conceived during 2 years with specialists. A new design, a new chassis, a new engine, a new mono-shock suspension etc every thing is new and well designed. The price, under 2 Lks is a very good offer for such a quality exclusive bike, supple enough to be ridden every day.So we have a clean rugged and cheap bike that will run everywhere and every time without problems.

    Mister Siddhartha Lal CEO & asociate Don’t talk about it and no journalist ever asked the question ( I may be wrong ). This bike looks like a contemporary gun, ready to transport soldiers and goods in their military operations. Was the bike designed for military uses ? Will the army & police buy this bike, adapted to their use in rough conditions, in replacement of their old R.E. models fleet ? This will be the jack-pot for R.E.
    Thanks you

  13. Still have to improve hello Indian, Himalayan sound really awesome but bike is not fully research looks copy paste from BMW .I don’t trust India bike

  14. I cudnt stop laughing at those baseless comments… especially from mr amit who just want to show off on some comments or half baked info… all he finds is a 90 deg angle in exhaust… please get your facts correct… you have completely ignored the ground clearance. re comes with 220 mm n other’s comes with sub 170 mm…. so before showing off by flashing your mob num, get your facts correct…

    Now coming to the himalayan… my first impression about the bike after the test ride… awesome.. what I like: riding posture, power n torque, awesome balance even with a pillion rider, good control, long gear ratios, very impressive braking and shocks. Is it good??? For the price definitely…

    What I don’t like : hard clutch, engine heat, lack of abs n direct ignition n alloys…

    I feel for the price range abs, DI and alloys can be forgotten… for the clutch… I was told it is because of the test drive, so is the engine heat.. but what impressed me is, they have changed the eng oil grade to reduce the heat… which means they r really working hard to make it perfect…

  15. All RE bykes are just show offs with no performance … Ultra poor quality parts… super poor quality craftsmanship…. Very Pathetic customer orientation….. I owned Classic 350 for 5 yrs … shredded almost Rs 50,000 during this period to maintain it & finally had to say good bye.

    People buy this particular byke JUST for SHOW OFF… change silencer… make some noice … add some chrome.. and it will become eye candy of everyone. Even in this above video of Himalayan model, if you see closely you can clearly see the poor finishing of Welding work near tool box frame. !!!… Gold help we Indians.

  16. Some are mad i thk so….for touring lik leh carborator is good for many parts…..carborator is easy to fix the problem…..and cost of reparing is low…..nd it work fr longer life period than fuel injection…..thk nd go for it…..thank uuu
