    I bought a new Himalayan September 2018 and I covered meanwhile 47300 km on it, all on European roads and most km's where run on motorways. Characteristics for the Himalayan are its comfortable riding position, excellent suspension, robustness, long stroke engine and relative good economy. The latter because of cumulative average mileage of 35 km/l over 47000 km and modest costs of service and maintenance. Covering 1000km on a single day is few effort on a Himalayan. It is great fun to keep up with my friends driving much faster bikes as ducati monster, bmw gs1200, bmw r-nine-t, moto guzzi breva and yamaha tdm 900 on curvy and twisty roads as long as there are no long straight sections in it.This is the benefit of the best suspension in royal Enfield line-up and the rev-happy engine that has reasonable low torque and excellent mid range torque. What went wrong or might be improved? Broken chain at km 27000 Switch gear/ starting relays problem starting @ km 30000, just recently solved under guarantee. It is however easy to bypass the switch with a cable from the live wire to the external terminal of the start motor. With that cable you can always start. Rapid wear of the motor-side sprocket (@ 16000 km it is nearly worn, despite frequent re-lubes). I think that it would make sense to frequently turn this sprocket E.G. Every 2000 km to get a gradual wear with the pulse wise loads of the single. Alternatively a 2nd front sprocket at hand could balance chain and sprocket life better. Difficulty is to get the m20 nut of the sprocket loose with hand tools. The Honda sprocket fixation with to parallel bolts is much more convenient. Rising fuel consumption for the last 3000 km. For this I suspect the brakes, especially the sliders of the calipers. Would I recommend it. yes, for sure, basically it is a rock solid motorbike and good value for money.

    Buying: Buying experience was smooth and hassle free. Dealer helped a lot with follow-ups with company and delivered my bike much sooner than promised date. Here I will like to give 5/5 stars. Riding: I have took this bike for 400 km's ride before my first servicing. Taken care not to exceed 60 km/h and 4000 rpms to get a smooth run in of the engine. Suspension is not as smooth as most of the owners claim. It is at harder side and that is okay because it is an adventure bike. But you can feel bumps and potholes more than my previous bike which brand and model I will not reveal to keep away from bias. Otherwise riding is smooth, maneuvering is smooth. I do not feel weight of the bike while using it even in the city traffic except I am stand still. Seat is okay for long rides but I would like to change it to a bit harder one. Looks and performance: Looks are okay. Not exceptional but average. The bike is bit taller than most of other regular bikes that's the prominent difference. Performance is okay. For me it was not extra ordinary like what I have seen in some YouTube channels. Engine gets stressed and bike made weird noise in 3rd gear at 50-60 km/h speed in my said trip. Later I came to know that chain of my bike was not properly tight as showroom mechanic told me. Why it was not configured? I had no answers. In steep ghat sections you feel shortage of power. And yes, the clutch is hard. I mean real hard that my palm began to ache after 100 km's of ride. Gear shifting is hard. I can hear a thud when I put bike in first gear from neutral. Higher gears are somewhat smoother. Much talked tripper navigation is useless when phone loses network. I had expected it shall store my route and guide me even when there is no network. So no point having separate console meter for same thing which a simple phone mount can do. A USB charging port would have been more useful than tripper navigation. Secondly, I yet to find a soul who can tell me the compass meter was life saver for them. The last point is, bike do not want to start after each refuel. I have to try a few times and that scares me as it do not have a kick start option. Servicing and maintenance: After first service the bike was still making weird noises so i had to take it to service center again. After my complaint they came to know about the issue. Then what did they checked about my complaints while giving it for first servicing? the noise was because of harden rear brake pads which they replaced in warranty. How? I mean how they got hardened? I had no answers again. Crash guard in my bike is yet to arrive and not fitted yet. Due to which when I dropped my bike (a soft drop at stationary position in my parking), the clutch leaver got bent. Now I have replace it at my cost. I have ordered knuckle guards while taking delivery of bike on 19th march and yet I am waiting for them on 4th April. Pros and cons in my opinion: Pros : a budget entry level adventure bike* rigid design. One can feel the sturdiness of bike* only internationally reputed Indian adventure bike, I feel somehow this bike will not ditch me on road* smooth buying experience. Cons : service centers need to improve no usb port to charge devices.

    Best bike for touring and it's very comfortable.Like break tyre, headlights etc.Etc.The himalayan is a pretty strong city bike. It has the low-end torque to get up and go at traffic lights and despite only having one cylinder, it never feels too slow in the city. It's also light enough to whip around in traffic with ease and quick lane changes are a breeze.

    Buying himalayan was a decision which we took in the year 2018 jan. It was well thought and researched by my husband. Himalayan as my man describes is his real love as he enjoys every experience riding on her. Undoubtedly though i get jealous at times but she has always made us proud. We live in the terrains of nainital and thus her off road commitment is marvelous..We have ridden her for almost 22000 kms and each time she has proved her commitment.We did experience a few downs with her in regards to some electric problem which we faced but shortly that was resolved. She gives a mileage of around 24kms on daily commuting and 28kms on highways.Rain, snow ,wetlands or no roads..Himalayan does not ditter..Another positive about her is her looks..She catches the attention of every passerby and makes us proud..I as a co-rider never say no to a ride when it comes to himalayan...Only advice if you are a biker himalayan gives you the best experience.

    I have purchased this bike in Covid time, and my purchasing experience was pretty good but i have to wait to around 2 months as some parts were imported from china and the imports were banned at that time. But the wait made it more special. And then the day arrived after almost 2 months, the dealer called me and told me that my bike is ready, the time I saw my bike I could not look anywhere else but my my brand new bike. I has always my dream to get Himalayan and that day my dream came true. Post lockdown was the first time I took my bike for an actual ride before that I have several small ride but Himalayan was not made for 200 or 300 km's ride, so I made a plan and this time it was 4000 km ride and it was a hell lot of fun. I rode my Himalayan in heat in rain and even in snow for a while. It performed like an royal Enfield. It looks pretty simple but it is eye catchy at the same point. Its off road capability is similar to highways (both are fun and easy). I got it serviced 2 times one major and on minor and it was very smooth and they charged me very minimal price.

    Best adventure tourer in budget for indian roads with off roading capable as well as good on highways. Sitting position, pickup, less vibration make it a good choice. I bought himalayan bs4 in 2018,using it for weekend rides and long rides twice in year. Bike never disappointed me. My experience with this bike is awesome. I installed extra fog lights, panniers, long windshield for touring. My bike is giving average of 40+kmpl because i only take it out on highway cruising or riding. If you are looking for entry level adventure tourer and planning something big in upcoming years, you can go for himalayan for first.

    1. Buying process is so easy. I got bike in less than two hours. Staff was very supportive. They brief me everything about bike before handing over it to me.2. Riding is so comfortable and good. I never felt tired on seat even driving 700 km in a single day. I drive it on both type of road. On road and off road. I did it on leh ladakh trip.3. It's look is awesome. It makes a difference between this and other bikes. I love sleet colour. Its performance is unbelievable. No bike can beat it in performance.I got average of 30-35 on full trip of ladakh. I compared it on my trip.Its balance, pick up, power, braking, tyre grip.. Everything was unbeatable.4. Service was good. I was satisfied. It runs very smooth. It has roadside assistance all over India. I love it's firing noise. Maintenance is so easy and genuine.Its not so costly like other bikes of this segment.5. Advantage of this bike is it's hulk power. A single disadvantage of this bike is it's height.Its little uncomfortable for the person having height less than 5'7".
