The rear sprocket is bigger than the stock unit, to facilitate better low-end performance. Furthermore, the spoke wheels are shod with knobby tyres for optimum grip off the road. The powertrain appears stock, but the traditional exhaust is replaced with custom Scrambler-like tailpipe. This set-up enhances the bike's water-wading capability even more. In its stock form, the Royal Enfield Himalayan makes 24.5 bhp at 6,500 rpm, and 32 Nm of torque between 4,000-4,500 rpm. The 411 cc single cylinder SOHC mill comes with air and oil cooling and fuel injection. Pairing with the powerplant is a 5-speed gearbox.
