Royal Enfield Himalayan Adventure Bike Shipping to U.S. Dealers Starting in April

The Himalayan creates a new subcategory within the fast-growing adventure touring motorcycle segment – an accessible, affordable and incredibly fun motorcycle that is equally capable of tackling the challenges of urban commuting as well as exploring off-road.

Royal Enfield is officially announcing the launch of the highly anticipated Himalayan adventure motorcycle in North America. The Himalayan creates a new subcategory within the fast-growing adventure touring motorcycle segment – an accessible, affordable and incredibly fun motorcycle that is equally capable of tackling the challenges of urban commuting as well as exploring off-road.

“We are excited to launch the Himalayan motorcycle in North America – simply put, it’s a fun, versatile and non-extreme motorcycle that everyone from experienced riders to new riders will enjoy,” said Rod Copes, president, Royal Enfield North America. “This launch begins a new chapter for Royal Enfield in North America. We are the only motorcycle company focused solely on the middleweight segment, and we believe this space is severely underserved. The Himalayan will join our other motorcycles in providing an experience that is fun, accessible and affordable – back to what motorcycling used to be in the early days. We call this the ‘Return to Pure Motorcycling.’ The Himalayan is the first of several exciting new motorcycle introductions planned in North America this year. Royal Enfield is rapidly becoming the global leader in middleweight motorcycles.”

The Himalayan complements the company’s current lineup of middleweight motorcycles and will be available at Royal Enfield dealers across North America in April with an MSRP of $4,499. The model will be available in two colors, Granite and Snow, and will offer a full range of motorcycle accessories, including aluminum panniers, engine guards, aluminum cross-braced handlebars and billet handlebar weights, with additional accessories available soon.

The Himalayan is built on a rugged, duplex, split-cradle frame designed and developed by Harris Performance. The overhead camshaft engine forms the base for its new long-stroke LS 410 engine. The engine delivers high torque and usable power at lower RPMs for smooth riding in higher gears at lower speeds, making it easier to climb hills or maneuver through traffic. Modern design and materials translate to increased efficiency and low maintenance.

A 4-gallon fuel tank provides a long range of over 250 miles. An ergonomic sync between foot pegs, handlebar and seat height provides a comfortable upright riding posture that is necessary for long rides. An accessible 31.5-inch seat height with lower mass balance ensures ease of planting feet on the ground for complete control. The bike comes fitted with dual-purpose tires that lend a confident grip and performance across a range of conditions. This is complemented by 9 inches of ground clearance. In addition to complete braking control, the 300 mm front and 240 mm rear disc brakes help to reduce braking effort.
