Original Story

Chennai based motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield is all geared up to unveil its new adventure tourer Himalayan in India on 2 February ( Tuesday), a day before the Auto Expo 2016, which the maker will be missing.

A lot has been written about the new Himalayan, which was caught on camera countless times while undergoing tests through different terrain conditions in India. Royal Enfield Himalayan, which is believed to come with the most affordable price tag in the adventure motorcycle segment, will be premiered today in flesh at an event in Delhi. It has been reported that the Himalayan will go on sale in India by March, nearly a month after its unveiling, with a price tag in the range of Rs 1.65 lakh to Rs 1.85 lakh.

Recently, the company released a series of videos and photos of the new Himalayan, painting a pretty clear picture of what to expect on the arrival of this new adventure motorcycle. The Himalayan, the adventure tourer developed with the Harris Performance, is powered by LS400, oil-cooled single-cylinder engine, which is tuned to churn out 25bhp of power and rides on 21 inch wheels.

The engine will have a 10,000 km oil change interval and the spark plug change at 25,000km interval. With a fuel tank of 15 litres and telescopic suspension, the new Himalayan promises exciting off-road abilities. Himalayan will be the first Royal Enfield offering to come with a monoshock suspension at the rear and the braking duties on both the ends in the new model will be taken care of by disc brakes.

The Himalayan was also tested by racing champion CS Santosh -- the first Indian to complete the Dakar Rally -- at Big Rock Motopark, Kolar, Karnataka.

Stay tuned for more updates as we bring to you the latest from the unveiling in Delhi.
