Custom Royal Enfield Himalayan green spotted at dealership
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
A customised Royal Enfield Himalayan has been spotted at a dealership, courtesy Deena Dayalan. Draped in an olive green colour, the bike comes with two jerry cans mounted on the sides. There’s also a throw-over waxed canvas saddlebag installed on the bike called ‘Long Rider’, and an engine crash guard.
Other than the additions above, the bike looks stock. A Himalayan with a similar paint-job was spotted in a dealership in the country a year ago. As with that, the recent spotting is also likely to be a dealer-level customisation. The Himalayan uses a 411 cc single cylinder air and oil-cooled engine which punches out 24.5 bhp of power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm. A five-speed gearbox does duty for the transmission of power.
The half-duplex split cradle frame holds the wheels via telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. The front suspension offers 200mm travel while the rear offers 180 mm. For anchorage, the Himalayan uses a 300 mm disc at the front and 240 mm rear disc. The bike misses out on ABS.
Royal Enfield has confirmed that it will launch an updated, fuel-injected Himalayan meeting BS-IV norms in the coming months. The brand is also testing the Continental GT 750, its next all-new motorcycle, which is due for a launch later this year.
