Royal Enfield has launched the 2021 Himalayan in the Indian market. The Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 is now offered with a price tag of Rs 2.01 Lakh, ex-showroom (Chennai).
The new model comes with a host of new features and equipment, along with three new colour options as well. Bookings for the Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 is now open across all dealerships in India. Customers can also make their bookings for the new Himalayan online via the brand’s official website.
Deliveries for the 2021 Himalayan are also expected to begin shortly. Starting off with the cosmetic changes, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 carries forward the same design and silhouette as its previous models, however, there are a few minor updates.
These include updated seats which now offer improved comfort and riding ergonomics, especially for long-distance touring, updated rear carrier and front metal frame and the addition of a new windscreen as well. However, the most significant cosmetic update is the introduction of the three new paint scheme options on 2021 Himalayan. The off-roader is now available in Pine Green, Granite Black (dual-tone with matte & gloss black) and Mirage Silver.
All three colour options will be sold alongside the existing options of Gravel Grey, Rock Red & Lake Blue. The 2021 Himalayan now also features Royal Enfield’s ‘Tripper Navigation’.
The new simple turn-by-turn navigation pod has been fitted alongside the motorcycles semi-digital instrument cluster. The new Tripper Navigation is powered by Google Maps and is connected to the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth and a dedicated Royal Enfield app. Finally, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan is now part of the brand’s ‘Make-it-Yours (MiY) initiative.
This allows Himalayan customers to personalise and accessories their motorcycles, according to their requirements and liking. The MiY initiative is available for customers across all platforms – the RE app, website and even at dealerships.
Apart from the above, no other changes have been made on the 2021 Himalayan. The updated motorcycle continues to be powered by the same BS6-compliant engine as before.
This comes in the form of a 411cc single-cylinder SOHC air-cooled unit. It produces 24.3bhp and 32Nm of peak torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 2021 is one of the most popular off-roader options in the Indian market. The motorcycle takes on the likes of the BMW G 310 GS and the KTM 390 Adventure.
