Nobody is surprised by the fact that Royal Enfield is developing a number of new products for the Indian market and is about to introduce the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 and the Royal Enfield Meteor 650. Recently, the test models of both bikes were spotted undergoing testing in India, and this provided important details about them, including the new styling. Here are all the specifics that you need to look over.
To begin with, when compared to other Royal Enfield motorcycles and the current Himalayan model, the new Himalayan 450 will now have a more muscular and aggressive styling. However, the new Himalayan 450 will keep its commanding presence on the road and high ground clearance. The bike’s current styling is more rounded and elements including more subtle front fascia.
Himalayan 450 Design
The bike also receives a longer front beak, a single-piece saddle, a compact exhaust, and a new fuel tank design. Additionally, it has integrated LED taillights and indicators that may make you think of many Harley Davidson motorcycles. Some other notable retro additions to this design include wire-spoke wheels, round rearview mirrors, and round headlamps.
The new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is anticipated to receive a new 450cc motor in addition to styling updates. This engine should produce between 40 and 48 Nm of peak torque at its maximum output. This engine may be paired with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed manual gearbox, or both.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Features
In terms of features, the manufacturer plans to equip the new Himalayan 450 with a tipper navigation system, a semi-digital instrument console, and other standard features like an electric start and an engine cut-off switch for the side stand, among others. Early in 2023, the company is anticipated to introduce the new Himalayan 450 in India, with a starting price of about Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
