The Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6 was launched in January, it bore a premium of around Rs 6,000, over the BS4-compliant model. When launched, prices for the new Himalayan BS6 started from Rs 1,89,565 (ex-showroom Delhi). In addition to the three old colours (white, black and Sleet), Royal Enfield had also introduced three new ones: grey, blue and red. The Himalayan BS6 also gets switchable ABS and hazard lights.
The headlight is a simple bulb unit. The instrument cluster looks virtually the same as before, although there are a few more tell tale lights and an additional toggle switch on the console for the switchable ABS. Yes, part of the extra goodies offered with the BS6 transition is switchable ABS, boosting its adventure credentials.
Royal Enfield has worked a lot on improving the refinement of the 411cc single-cylinder engine. The current BS6 power unit is certainly a lot smoother than the first one we sampled in 2016. The engine produces 24.31PS and 32Nm, 0.13PS lower than its BS4 guise. No changes to the five-speed gearbox though. The Himalayan BS6 remains a capable off-roader, suspended by long-travel suspension units at both ends. It is the only affordable adventure tourer in India to get a 21-/17-inch spoke wheel setup that comes shod with dual-purpose CEAT tyres. Braking hardware comprises a front 300mm disc with a twin-piston caliper and on the rear wheel, you get a 240mm disc with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard with switchable ABS finally offered on the Himalayan.
