    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.

    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.

    I bought the bike on march 19th 2021 and I loved the bike very much but issues started after first service that is after 500 km. The will not start after we turn it off for some reason. It will not start once it’s turned off. It’s a brand new bike and showing this kind of problems and also it will stall in the middle of the heavy traffic. Today, I almost crashed because the bike turned off when I was riding on 70 km/h with pulled throttle. The bike slipped because the rear tyre got locked as the bike turned off. I have visited the showroom several times but problem still continues.

    I bought my first royal enfield, rock red (himalayan) bs-vi in march 2020 from the yerwada showroom(pune). After taking numerous test ride of different models from classic(350), thunderbird-x, and then finally, came to himalayan. After the demo ride, i asked sales representative few questions about the performance of bike and he can make out from my face hat how deeply i was satisfied after the test ride and when i shot my last question about the wait time and he apparently said 20 days then" i was like book it right now". Here comes to my demo ride experience, bike performance is amazing both on-road and off-road, even though in case you are riding it through potholes and uneven roads, mono shocker present below the rider seat works like a charm and the original seat of the bike is soft and comfortable letting you carry long journeys with ease that, a piece of small advice to get a bike cover immediately once you get your delivery. Although the buying experience was not that smooth as i had to chase the sales representative and showroom regarding delivery. They were procrastinating and pushing the bike delivery deadline from what being promised. Anyways after making a few calls to the customer support of royal enfield, i received my bike on 9 march 2020.It's been three months and as you know due to the covid situation and nationwide lockdown, i was not able to take a ride on it very much, but the bike is really promising. In terms of performance when you give the throttle, you could feel the power of it. Himalayan equipped with dual abs you can switch on and off the rear abs via a button, it has a compass to help you with direction, digital meter tells you about how many kilometers you have ridden and using mode button you can see mileage and set time also in case the digital clock is not set, now coming to the gauge meter its comes with reading both in kilometer/hour and miles/hour. On the right-hand side, there is a small meter that shows rpm (rotations/revolutions per minute). In terms of mileage, i'm getting 25 km/l (which is quite less being what is proclaimed), bs-vi version himalayan has very less vibration as it comes with efi (electronic fuel injection) so maintenance cost goes up but less harmful to the environment,The problem i'm facing with himalayan is that battery drain out too quickly if you are not frequently riding it, after every few days i have to call royal enfield roadside assistance which is really good and gives a jump start to my bike.It worth buying and now i can proudly proclaim myself as a proud owner of royal enfield.Note: the reason i opted for glossy color is that it' easy to maintain and doesn't look bad even a layer of dirt is there which is not the case with matt finish. Anyways it's my personal decision and taste.
