The Royal Enfield Himalayan launched in India with a carburetted engine.
Speaking to IAB this month, Mr Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield, revealed that the BSIV version of the bike will be launched soon. Mr Singh said:
We are still working on the BSIV project. (Fuel injected version?, we ask) Yes, Yes, we are going to be coming out very soon with that. Other than that we are very, very delighted with the performance of the Himalayan. I am very confident about the future of the motorcycle.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is powered by a new 411 cc SOHC, single cylinder air-cooled (assisted by an oil-cooler). Coupled to a 5-speed gearbox, the engine is capable of producing 24.5 bhp of maximum power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm.
The carburetted version of the Himalayan, which is not available any longer, was priced at INR 160,148 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
