The suspension system of the Himalayan was tuned by Harris Performance UK which was acquired by Royal Enfield around May last year. The motorcycle uses a 21-inch rim upfront and likely an 18-inch wheel at the rear, both of which are spoked. The tyres are dual purpose models that can be used both on- and off-road.
