- To get new colour options
- Will feature Tripper navigation system
- Likely to carry a price premium over the outgoing version
Royal Enfield has confirmed via its social media handles that it will launch the 2021 Himalayan in the Indian market on 11 February. The updated motorcycle will feature new colours and Royal Enfield’s Tripper navigation system. The navigation system, which is powered by Google Maps, was first seen on the Meteor 350.
As reported earlier this week, the motorcycle has started to arrive at the dealer yards. The spy photograph revealed the new green paint option with camouflage graphics. The changes on the 2021 model will be limited to the updated colour palette and the new Tripper navigation system. The motorcycle already complies with the BS6 emission norms. Thus, mechanical specifications will remain unaltered. The BS6-compliant, 411cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine makes 24.3bhp of power and 32Nm of peak torque.
The hardware specifications, too, will remain unaltered. The suspension setup will include telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. The braking setup will include single discs on both wheels while the safety net will comprise dual-channel ABS. The 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels are shod in block-pattern tyres.
With the updated setup, the 2021 Himalayan is likely to carry a price premium over the current model. The existing Royal Enfield Himalayan is available from Rs 1,91,591 (ex-showroom, Delhi) onwards.
