As we inch closer to the launch of Royal Enfield's new adventure tourer Himalayan, a new set of spy shots has emerged online, this time around showing the engine of the model.
Royal Enfield Himalayan has been going through rigorous testing in the country for the past several months and the model was snapped quite a few times in various cities of the country. The Himalayan is expected to be powered by an all new 410cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine.
Although the technical detail of the engine are yet to be made public, rumours indicate that the engine could be tuned to develop 24bhp of power and 35Nm of peak torque. From the latest spy shots shared by Motoroids, the new engine, which is finished in all black, gets Royal Enfield branding on both sides. The transmission duties are likely to be taken care of by a five-speed unit. Royal Enfield is also developing a 750 cc inline twin-cylinder unit.
The Himalayan, expected to make its market debut in early 2016, will feature an upswept exhaust, fatter rear tyre and a petrol tank similar to the Continental GT. The model is expected to get new instrument cluster with a compass and altitude meter with digital display.
The Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer is expected to price its new offering in the range of Rs 1.65-1.85 lakh.
