Sleet essentially means partially-melted falling snow. The snow camouflage is apt for an adventure tourer like the Himalayan.

Apart from the camouflage paint job, the Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet comes with the Explorer kit as standard. The kit includes water-resistant aluminium panniers with a capacity of 26 litres each; pannier mounting brackets; off-road style aluminium handlebar with cross brace for added strength, handlebar end weights for additional protection; and an engine guard with black powder coat finish. The motorcycle comes with a 2-year warranty, like other Royal Enfields.

Apart from the accessories, the bike is the same as the existing Himalayan. Powering the bike is a single cylinder 411 cc SOHC mill. With fuel injection, the engine generates 24.5 bhp of power at 6,500 rpm, and 32 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm. A 5-speed transmission does duty in the motorcycle. The engine nestles inside a half-duplex split cradle frame. For suspension, the motorcycle employs 41 mm telescopic front fork, and a rear monoshock with linkage. A 300 mm front and a 240 mm rear disc handle the braking responsibility. Compared to the normal variant, the Sleet is approximately INR 28,000 more expensive.
