It appears like the iconic bike maker Royal Enfield line-up continues to grow as the first ever spy shots of the company's upcoming model emerges online.

Caught on camera by the motor buffs at Motor Vikatan while undergoing its initial rounds of testing in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, the new Royal Enfield bike that is believed to be named Himalayan seems to have diverted a little more than from the company's familiar design.

Judging from the images, while much of the features like tail-light, headlamp and mudguard of the new model of Royal Enfield look similar to the features found in Continental GT, the riding position and the handle bar of the test mule seems to have been raised.

The major highlight of the new Royal Enfield adventure tourer is the incorporation of the mono-shock absorber and there seems to be front and rear disc brakes.

Little else is known about the other features of the adventure touring offering of Royal Enfield at this point of time, but the model will reportedly get power from new 400cc engine. Previous reports had said that the company is developing a new 400cc engine that would be tuned to develop 40Nm.

Recently, the company's 750cc air-cooled engine with carburetors was spied in a Continental GT chassis that us likely to churn out a power of 45-50bhp and a peak torque of more than 60Nm.
