While KTM created the 390 Duke for the streets, Royal Enfield built the new Himalayan with an off-road DNA. While there is a good chance that KTM enthusiasts will own a 390 series Adventure motorbike, Royal Enfield enthusiasts will always regret the high BHP figures produced by their powerful engines. One of them was a true rebel who made the decision to alter how things operate while using the RE moniker.
The best illustration of how the off-road capabilities of a RE’s chassis and the power statistics of a KTM machine may be satisfied is this typical Himalayan. The engine in this hybrid RE-KTM Himalayan was customised by the owner to resemble little short of factory-installed. The difficulties have been solved in a really nice manner.
The motorcycle’s air-cooled, carburetor-fed engine is replaced by an engine that is liquid cooled and fuel injected. The 390 Duke was also the source for the instrument console. The motorcycle has a large back sprocket, and the carburetor cover has revealed the chassis of the vehicle.
