After the 2021 Himalayan being spied several times, Royal Enfield has finally launched the motorcycle in India. While we have always admired this ADV for its practicality and go-anywhere nature, RE has tweaked certain things to make it even easier to live with. Here, we tell you what all these changes are.
Royal Enfield has introduced its new Tripper navigation in the 2021 Himalayan which we have already seen in the Meteor 350. It works with Google Maps and gives access to turn-by-turn navigation in an easy-to-understand format. The Tripper module has been fitted alongside its old instrument cluster which remains unchanged.
The Himalayan has become a better tourer now owing to the subtle yet thoughtful changes executed by RE. It gets a redesigned and taller windscreen for better wind deflection at higher speeds. The fuel tank rack has also been shortened to prevent it from touching the rider’s knees. Furthermore, the seat cushioning also gets denser foam for better long-distance comfort.
Metal luggage rack
RE has replaced the previous rear luggage carrier with a new metal plate which will help in securing heavier luggage in a more secure way now. For those intending to munch miles carrying a huge amount of luggage, the Himalayan can be kitted with aluminum panniers available in Royal Enfield’s official accessory portfolio.
The Himalayan had received new funkier colour options during its BS6 update. Now, these are added three new paint schemes which look even more eye-catchy. These include Granite Black, Mirage Silver, and Pine Green.
The prices of the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan start at Rs 2,03,314 which vary as per the chosen colour option. This has made the motorcycle around Rs 10,000 more expensive than its previous model which carried prices starting from Rs 1,91,401 onwards (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi).
