Royal Enfield has launched the BS6-compliant 2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan in the Indian market at a price of INR 1.87 Lakh (ex-showroom). The updated Himalayan now gets a new dual-tone colour option, a switchable ABS, and other additions. The switchable ABS feature enables rear-wheel ABS control deactivation further enhancing the off-road capabilities of the Himalayan.
Mechanically, the new Royal Enfield Himalayan is now powered by a BS6-compliant, 411 cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, SOHC, air-cooled, fuel injection that makes 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque. The motor is offered with a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox. Other additions in the 2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan include a hazard switch, enhanced brake mechanism and improved side-stand. There is a three-year warranty with the motorcycle as well.
The 2020 Himalayan also gets two new dual-tone colour options — Lake Blue and Rock Red. Other paint schemes available with the adventurer tourer are Sleet Grey, Gravel Grey, Snow White and Granite Black.
The 2020 Himalayan is the second Royal Enfield motorcycle after Classic 350 dual-channel ABS to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms.
