    Its a worthy bike, for its price we will get good performance and comfort to ride, I got good feeling ride this bike for long drive for tours it can travel up to 450 km per day the best bike to go for solo trip or trip with the friends, its look like sports bike, and its head light is superb and side look is crazy. Its doesn't take much maintenance and for servicing for 4 - 6 months once we should take it for servicing and maintenance.

    This is very crazy moment of booking the bike. I remember java was launched at the same time and initially I booked java and later review received as rust formation in metals cancelled the booking and right away went to re showroom and booked the royal enfield Himalayan (bsiv) without test ride. Wow! what a bike :)Almost waited for couple of days for loan approvals and rto process then received the bike. Seriously, I was shocked with the performance of the bike and throttle sound of exhaust. I have purchased grey and white sticker strips on the tank and tail part. It is definitely a naked version of adventuring bike. Looks wise awesome and very comfortable for touring and off road. May of us have a thought it wont be fit for long touring but believe me it is only one bike which gives more comfortable in 400cc bikes (I bet on it). As I mentioned it is 411cc, single cylinder and 15+ liters of tank capacity. Depends on your riding style it will lead too 300+ km's in one full tank. If I talk about servicing and maintenance it is reasonable and affordable price for any repairing. Accessories are frequently available for Himalayan in service centers. I am not sure about others for my Himalayan bike and based on my riding style every time of service would cost me around 1.8-2k depends on consumables needed but compare to other company re is bit affordable price and accessible for everyone. Lets come to my favorite and important topic (pros & cons). Pros:1. Short rider can easily ride the bike 2. Good mileage and service cost 3. Long travel touring without any tiredness 4. Easily mount the luggage with bungees 5. Suspension good and take huge pot holes without any stress 6. Low end torque performs well in hills station. 7. Good in corning with confident. Cons:1. In bumper to bumper traffic, your legs will be boiled for sure. 2. City commuter is bit uncomfortable.3. Fuel gauge is gets defective very soon ( I have changed almost four types 4. Cone set issue appears every 7k-8k km's (needs a mandatory replacement).5. Tube types for sure Definitely need little improvements from re like (cross spoke wheels to avoid punchers, instrument cluster change). 98% of vehicle is good and just 2% drawbacks but does not mean it is bad one. In 2021 they have added good features in the bike. For rider safety please wear always helmet, mandatory gears and ride responsible.

    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.

    The black horse i would like to buy a bike which gives me a feel and feedback. The torque and the riding comfort made me to think this is not an ordinary bike its something else. Like some automotive enthusiast would say that this is not only for road its for off roads too. And i would like to stick on that, better maintenance is needed and its like a horse. A wonderful black horse.

    Riding this machine for more than 10 months. Even though the engine is smooth the vibrations do come after 4000rpm. The service experience with royal enfield was also not bad.I get a mileage of 35 kmpl and it goes over potholes like its nothing.I wish there was a button for killing the rear abs. The tires give great traction and are great for off roading.The seats are comfy and well suited for long rides.The pillion seat is also comfortable. Acceleration is okay. But i wish there was more power and would be appreciated if the torque kicks in a little more early. The bike is nearly perfect it just needs more power and it will be awesome.Maintaining the bike is also not bad just make sure you break in the bike properly and maintain a good speed and service accordingly and this bike can munch miles.

    Most amazing off road bike in indian bike market and for the price of the bike it is so gainfull for the owner. The riding experience is so good that we can take this bike to anywhere and the service cost is lesser. Looks of the bike mainly concentrate on the off road bike looks suck a classy bike ever seen. It's advantage is that this bike is more comfortable than any other bikes. Disadvantage is after some distance covered after a particular speed some sort of sounds are heard from the engine. This bike is so cool for the riders.
