Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 vs Himalayan 450: Visual Differences

Royal Enfield is prepping to launch their new KTM 390 Duke rival, the Guerrilla 450, perhaps towards the end of July. Ahead of its official debut, the motorcycle has been spied on multiple times till now, revealing quite a few things about it. One of the main revelations is that it will be based on the Himalayan 450 but with certain changes that’re visible in the spy shots. Let’s take a look at these evident differences.

Design

The Himalayan, as we know, is a quintessential adventure tourer and it looks like one with a tall and upright stance. Its industrial design is complemented by a tall windscreen, jerry can holders, a beak-like front fender, and a rear luggage rack. The Guerrilla, meanwhile, is more of a roadster, or a scrambler to some extent, with minimalistic bodywork, smaller wheels, and a lower-slung stance than the Himalayan.

The biggest and clearest mechanical difference between the two bikes is in terms of wheels. Unlike the Himalayan’s 21-18-inch spoke wheel combination, the Guerrilla 450 seems to be running 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends. Plus, the Guerrilla is suspended by telescopic front forks, as against the Himalayan’s Showa upside-down forks. The former also has a different mounting setup for the headlamp which allows it to move with the handlebar, whereas the Himalayan has a fixed headlamp assembly. The rest of the components like the frame, sub-frame, swingarm, and brakes appear to be the same on both bikes.

Dimensions.

Courtesy of the difference in wheel size and, perhaps, suspension travel, the Guerilla 450 will boast a lower seat and ground clearance. It might also boast a shorter wheelbase and steeper rake angle which will facilitate the bike with more agility. For your reference, the Himalayan 450 has a standard seat height of 825mm, ground clearance of 230mm, and the wheelbase stands at 1,510mm.

Features

Just like the Himalayan, the Guerrilla 450 is equipped with a full LED lighting setup. Even the instrument cluster seems to be the same circular unit in the spy shots. However, Royal Enfield might equip the roadster with an LCD console to save costs. Royal Enfield might also skimp on other features for the Guerrilla like switchability for ABS and two riding modes. However, a USB charger and Bluetooth connectivity should be available as standard considering these features are becoming a norm now.
