Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
To be launched in a month.
Ahead of its launch, the company has planned a 10 day tour that started on February 12, covering major cities across the country including Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kolkata and Noida, as a marketing campaign. The model will go on sale expectedly in the middle of next month, by when its price will be announced.

Expected to be priced between INR 1.65 lakhs and INR 1.85 lakhs (ex-showroom), the Himalayan would be positioned beneath the Royal Enfield Classic 500 and the Royal Enfield Continental GT.
