Royal Enfield Himalayan 750 could be the next best thing from the manufacturer and could finally devoid of all its pain and criticism that current one offers
Royal Enfield, a motorcycle manufacturing company known for producing the iconic ‘Bullet’ , is launching a 750cc Himalayan to the Indian market. The bike is aimed at people who are interested in touring over long distances on their bike. this was announced by Mr. Siddartha Lal, CEO and MD of Royal Enfield, in an interview with Motorcycle Magazine. Royal Enfield has been serious about its operations in India as well as overseas and is working on new products for the Indian market out of which The Himalayan is one of them
The bike’s displacement and other performance related data is not available at the moment, but we are expecting a 749cc engine. The rest of the bike will be the same as the present Himalayan, which is powered by a 411cc single cylinder Long Stroke (LS) engine that produces a power output of 25.4bhp and 32Nm of torque. The bike will be built on a half-duplex split cradle frame that is designed to keep the rider close to the motorcycle’s centre for a connected feel and responsive handling in all riding conditions.
The suspension setup will also be the same, a dual fork setup at the front and a monoshock suspension in the rear with long travel, for grip at all times. The seating position will be low, as to ensure the reach of ground at all times. The tall handlebar placement and well synchronised foot pegs will help the rider fatigue free for longer hours on the road.
As for the tyres, the bike will get the same tyres as of the present Himalayan, a 90/90-21’’ tyres in the front and a 120/90-17’’tyre at the rear and the brakes will also be the same, a 300mm disc at the front and a smaller 240mm disc at the rear. The instrument cluster will also be the same.
Pricing of the bike is not yet decided, but can be a potential hit in the middleweight adventure bike segment, as this would the only adventure bike in the price range of Rs. 2 lakhs and below.
