Here is what our experts feel about Himalayan
The Himalayan is Royal Enfield's only bike that’s not a thumper. It has been designed from the ground-up to take on far more challenging terrain than most budget tourers. The all-new oil-cooled motor is more refined and revs higher than any other Royal Enfield bike.
The Himalayan is also the only adventure tourer that you can buy without burning a hole in your pocket. Having a carburetted setup makes it easy to get it fixed in remote areas should anything go wrong.
The Himalayan faces competition from the Bajaj Dominar, Honda CBR 250R and the Mahindra Mojo and from Enfield’s own bikes like the Classic 350/500, the Thunderbird 350 and the Bullet 500.
The Himalayan features a functional design that is quite appealing if you are an off-road enthusiast. There are mounting points for attaching panniers, top boxes and jerry cans so you can go for quite a distance in remote areas without worrying about fuel range. The tank capacity is limited to 15 litres which is on the lower side when compared to the 20-litre fuel tank on the Thunderbird.
The instrument console gets a digital odometer, two trip meters, ambient temperature, a clock, a gear position indicator and a digital compass. The speedometer, tachometer and the fuel gauge are of the analogue variety
Its 410cc single-cylinder engine produces 25PS of power and 32Nm of torque. It may sound less coming from a 400cc motor but it has quite good low-end torque which offers adequate pull for on-road as well as off-road use.It isn’t the quickest off the line but it doesn’t need to be. The acceleration is strong and the torquey motor won't require a downshift in most circumstances.
The suspension isn’t the smoothest for city use but you don't have to worry about slowing down for rumble strips and speed breakers. It is unstoppable as long as you remember to stand and open the throttle. Off the tarmac, it comes into its own but the heavy weight can keep you from pushing the envelope as its heavy curb weight can quickly tire you out In the real world, the Himalayan returns a mileage of 29.5kmpl in the city and 34.5kmpl out on the highway.
