Royal Enfield has increased the prices of the BS6 Himalayan. The dual-sport motorcycle has become costlier by around INR 2.7k.
The BS6 Royal Enfield Himalayan was launched earlier this year at a starting price of INR 1.86 lakh*. Since there aren’t any significant visual changes in the motorbike when compared to the BS4 model, Royal Enfield added 3 new colour options (Gravel Grey, Lake Blue, Rock Red) to keep things fresh. So, the BS6 Himalayan has a total of 6 colour options - 3 new and 3 old (Granite Black, Snow White, Sleet Grey).
Now, the BS6 Royal Enfield has received its first price hike and all the colour options have become more expensive by around INR 2.7k.

Some of the features that help the Himalayan tackle off-road conditions include long 41 mm telescopic front forks with 200 mm of travel, 220 mm of ground clearance, 21-in front and 17-in rear spoke wheels wrapped in knobby tyres.
