    The bike is super comfy and adventure tourer the bike is easy to control on mud roads and dirty roads and the bike is pretty good on highway and it offers great pickup on mud roads and the acceleration is quite good but some disappointment is that the bike feels less confidence on high speed around 120.

    I got mine in July 13 2016.Its almost one year of Himalayan for me.I was never an re fanboy.I was in search of a mile munched. I used to do a lot of distance 150 to 2oo kms on my activa. so you can understand the tourer in me.It took a toll on my back.So i decided ever if i own a motorcycle it would not bother me at bumps and pot holes.I saw Himalayan launch on you tube and it swept me off my off my feet and i decided to book my honey on the first day and i did.Got the bike in second batch at eicher kochi....Till date i have had clocked over 6000kms of which 80 pc is long distant rides of avg 300kms each.I had taken it to high range,ghat sections and long highway trips.The bike never let me down and i had shown my patience to rectify replace certain parts as done through recalls .Re service guys are really supportive and passionate about this bike......So my final verdict is " this s a bike for the matured rider".(drag race wheely guys will be

    Screwed owning a Himalayan)

    Buying experience: it was a first choice of mine, since this bike completes my need to touring and riding on bad roads. Riding experience: not suitable for city traffic riding but makes u too happy if it is used in long rides with minimum traffic roads. Looks & performance: looks is too loving since it’s differentiate your bike as compared to same range other bikes and performance wise its average since engine is not oil cooled as still is carburetor bases which required refinement a bit. And soon abs is required from re.Servicing and maintenance: service facility is easily available in mumbai so have not faced any issue, however had some problem with engine freezing some time and clutch cable getting loose However service center staff has rectified the same once i have shared my problem.Pros and cons:Pros: 1. Value for money 2. Best bike for touring at this range 3. Parts and service easily available 4. Parts are less costly comparatively 5. Ground clearance is awesome Cons:1. Re should start selling more accessories, so true buyer will avoid buying aftermarket parts 2. Average is not that good 3. Clutch cable issues 4. Abs not available 5. New colours schemes should be available.

    Had to change tyre because of the manufacturing defect. Doubt the Quality Assurance department. Engine malfunctioned twice within 5 month of purchase. The parts and the services provided by the Royal Enfield is of low quality. I dreamt of going to Ladakh on this bike but it can't withstand the roads of Delhi.

    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 bought the himalayan with a few apprehensions. I wasn't sure about the reliability bit as the bs3 carburetted was a nightmare of a bike. I made the plunge nevertheless and i have not been disappointed. The bs4 fi himalayan is definitely a step in the right direction from re. I haven't had any reliability issues thus far barring once when the steering started wobbling after i did a bit of offroading as the ball riser needed fastening and the wheel required some tuning. The service center at rrnagar, bengaluru were all ears and identified the problem and fixed it in a day.The bike isn't the prettiest and has the looks only a mother would love. The performance remains the same, the engine churning out the same amount power as the previous version did. The bike badly lacks a top end on highways with it refusing to go beyond 7500 rpms. I did touch 140 kmph+ a few times though with proper shifting and the vibes starts kicking in. This is the least vibrating re of them all. I can say that with a lot of confidence. The front brakes leaves a lot to be desired as it lacks bite. Needless to say, there is no abs yet. But the selling point of this bike is obviously its long travel suspension, ground clearance and the comfort it offers while cruising and the confidence it inspires while off roading. The ceat tyres makes less work of all that comes its way and gives you much needed confidence to push the bike further through rocky mountains and mud.Finally, if you are into touring and adventure and is looking for a budget bike, himalayan wouldn't be a bad option at all. It will definitely take you places!
