Royal Enfield today announced the launch of the new Himalayan across India, Europe and the UK, in three new distinctive, terrain-inspired colourways, along with a range of upgrades. The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will now be available in New Granite Black (mix of matte and gloss), Mirage Silver, Pine Green, in addition to the existing colourways Rock Red, Lake Blue and Gravel Grey.
With this launch, the Himalayan now gets the Make It Yours – MiY – initiative allowing customers to personalize and accessorize their motorcycle across all channels – the RE App, the website and at dealerships. The new Himalayan will also feature the Royal Enfield Tripper, simple and intuitive turn-by-turn navigation pod. The new 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan also gets several upgrades to the seat, the rear carrier, front rack and a new windscreen, making the versatile adventure tourer even more capable and comfortable.
Launched with a purpose of creating a distinct sub-category under adventure touring, the Himalayan has been hugely successful and has a growing community of adventure riders across the globe. Purpose-built and practical, the Himalayan debuted in 2016, and over the last 5 years, it has definitively carved out a strong category of accessible adventure touring across the world.
A simple, capable, and ‘go-anywhere’ motorcycle, the Himalayan was inspired by Royal Enfield’s experience of over 50 years of riding across the Himalayas. Owing to its versatility, simplicity and competence, the Himalayan has received an incredible response from riders across the world. The Himalayan today is recognized as a truly capable adventure tourer by global motorcycle experts, has been featured on the covers of top global automobile magazines, and is among the leading Royal Enfield motorcycles being sold across several geographies, including Europe, America, Latin America and South-East Asia.
Inspired by its community and riding enthusiasts, the Himalayan has consistently evolved with aesthetic as well as functional upgrades to enhance the overall ride experience, both on and off the road. The new 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan retains the original versatility and vigour and makes the ride experience more engaging by adding the Royal Enfield Tripper, a focused navigation display device for real-time directions, built with Google Maps Platform and paired via the Royal Enfield App to the rider’s smartphone. With this launch, Royal Enfield also introduces the MiY tool on the Himalayan making it possible for customers to personalize their motorcycle with a host of accessories for added style, comfort and protection including touring mirror kit, comfort seats, handlebar brace and pad, aluminium panniers and mounting kits.
The new 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan comes with improved seat cushioning allowing riders to enjoy extended saddle time with even more comfort. The new windscreen keeps the wind off the rider, thereby leading to more comfortable and enjoyable miles on the saddle. The rear carrier on the new Himalayan now comes with an additional plate to ensure secure fastening and placement of any luggage. Additionally, the rear carrier is now also reduced in height, making it easier for riders to mount the motorcycle. With the new and lean ergonomically adjusted front rack, the rider faces minimal interference around the legs while riding, thus, improving the overall comfort and experience.
The new 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will be available in three new colourways – the new Granite Black, Mirage Silver, and Pine Green adding to the existing portfolio of three colour variants – Rock Red, Lake Blue, and Gravel Grey. The motorcycle will be available for booking and test rides across all Royal Enfield stores in India starting at Rs. 2,01,314 (ex-showroom)
