Royal Enfield Himalayan 450: Top 5 highlights

The new Himalayan 450 is another game-changer for Royal Enfield. It offers a bucket load of updates over the Himalayan 411. If you want to know everything about the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450, you are at the right place. Here we list the top five highlights of the motorcycle.

Refreshed design

The design of the new Himalayan 450 is recognisable to the Himalayan 411. However, Royal Enfield, while keeping the similarities, has refreshed the design of the motorcycle. At the front, the beak has a flow to it that sets it apart. The new, bigger fuel tank is rounder than before, the side panels and more angular and the rear section looks even more minimal. What is also different is the exhaust can that is stubbier than before.

Along with the revised styling, the new Himalayan 450 comes in new colour options- Kaza Brown, Slate Himalayan 450 Salt, Slate Poppy Blue, Hanle Black and Kamet White.

All-new engine

Underneath the new bodywork is an all-new 450cc engine. This is the first engine from Royal Enfield with liquid cooling and offers 40bhp and 40Nm. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with an assist and slipper clutch as standard.

Segment-first features

While the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 offers full-LED lighting for the turn signals, headlamp and tail lamp, the motorcycle comes with an important segment-first feature- the colour TFT screen. Unlike most offerings today, the display on the new Himalayan is circular.

Then, it also comes integrated with Google Maps for navigation which is smartly displayed above a panel that shows speed, distance and fuel level. The display, thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity allows rides to access call and text alerts as well. In addition to this, the Himalayan 450 also gets switchable ABS and ride-by-wire throttle.

Further, the ground clearance and wheelbase stand at 230mm and 1,510mm, respectively. As for the cycle parts, the Himalayan 450 rides on a 21-17-inch spoke wheel combination that is suspended Showa USD forks and a monoshock while braking is handled by a single disc at both ends.
