Ashwin Ram

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.

Purpose-built for touring and off-roading.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been launched at INR 1,55,545 (ex-showroom, Maharashtra). The on-road Mumbai price is INR 1,78,872. In price, the Himalayan competes with the Mahindra Mojo and the Benelli TNT 25.
