Royal Enfield Himalayan ABS model reportedly enters production. Launch Expected to Happen by Mid-2018

It is being said that the Royal Enfield Himalayan ABS model has entered production. The ABS-equipped model will first launch in international markets, before entering the domestic market. We believe that the upcoming ABS model of the Royal Enfield Himalayan will command a price premium of roughly Rs 10,000, thereby taking the sticker price to roughly Rs 1.75 lakh. Other than the introduction of ABS, there won’t be any change in the specifications of the adventure motorcycle.

Royal Enfield Himalayan ABS Specifications, Mileage

Other than the introduction of ABS, there will be absolutely no change in the motorcycle. Hence, both the specifications and the mileage will remain the same. The RE Himalayan comes with a 410cc single-cylinder engine that outputs a max. power of 24.5 BHP and a peak torque of 32 Nm. This all-new motor has been developed entirely in-house by Royal Enfield and is said to be equipped with counter-balancer shaft to keep NVH levels in check. Being an adventure motorcycle, the Himalayan gets long-travel telescopic forks at front and a monoshock suspension at the rear, which is yet another first for a Royal Enfield. The 410cc adventure tourer rides on 21-inch wheels and gets disc brakes at both ends. And now, finally, the motorcycle will come with ABS.
