The Himalayan Is Fit To Be Your Only Motorcycle.

All of Himalayan’s sums and parts work in perfect harmony to utilize the energy of the terrain it traverses. A grounded stance, terrain tested suspension, dual purpose tyres combined with agile handling means the Himalayan can handle any off road environments.

The Himalayan features a half-duplex split cradle frame which is robotic welded for greater precision and strength. This advanced chassis is designed to keep the rider close to the motorcycle’s center for a connected feel and responsive handling in all riding conditions.

For the first time Royal Enfield employs a monoshock suspension in the rear, the long travel of which keeps the tyres of the Himalayan in contact with the road at all times and delivers a smooth ride regardless of terrain.



2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan Key Features

Decades of expeditions. Thousands of kilometers of traversing the most challenging terrain. Years of living and evolving with a machine that responds to the mountains. That’s how we made the Himalayan, our first dual-purpose motorcycle. Here is how it was built to be tough, versatile, and adaptable to all kind of terrain.

A 220mm of ground clearance means crossing deeper rivers, going over bigger rocks, traversing further and finding that special place off the map.

A tread pattern that works across terrains to provide a rider the confidence to go further. Massive 21’’ in the front provide the ability to roll over higher obstacles while the rear 17’’ wheel digs in for all the traction to enjoy any terrain a rider traverses.

The upright riding position of the Himalayan creates a comfortable rider interface ideal for extended rides. The optimized handlebar, seat and footpeg positioning, along with a narrow fuel tank, allow you to swiftly switch from sitting to a stand-and-ride position with ease whenever the terrain demands it.

A high-placed angular up-swept exhaust mean unprecedented water wading capacity and ability to take on deeper river crossings.

Dual-Channel ABS for increased confidence and stability while braking.
