- Gets an LCD instrument console
- Could be equipped with Showa front forks
- Seems closer to production
The most recent pictures reveal that the Himalayan 450 could be equipped with a round LCD. Unlike the bikes so far from the brand’s stable, the 450 packs a single pod, likely to house all the readouts. Apart from that, it also seems to be suspended on non-adjustable front forks from Showa.
It’ll be feature a completely new design with a tall stance, split seat, and probable LED illumination. Even the handlebar looks quite wide and the fuel tank seems to have jerry can holders. The new Himalayan will be powered by a liquid-cooled, 450cc engine that will deliver 40bhp and 45Nm. It’ll feature spoked wheels wrapped in dual-purpose tyres. You can also expect smartphone connectivity on the new console. Not to mention, Royal Enfield could also offer touring accessories since a previous test mule was spotted with a pannier and top box mounts.
