Royal Enfield teases upcoming Himalayan 452 model once more!
The impending launch of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 in India has generated considerable excitement among motorcycle enthusiasts.
The highly anticipated Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 is gearing up for its grand debut in the Indian market, scheduled for early next month. As the launch date draws near, Royal Enfield has unveiled an intriguing teaser video that offers a sneak peek into what this motorcycle has in store for adventure enthusiasts.
Unveiling the Exciting Details:
The teaser video provides a comprehensive view of the Himalayan 452, a formidable competitor to the likes of the KTM 390 Adventure. It meticulously showcases the motorcycle from various angles, unveiling the intricacies of its exterior design. What's particularly intriguing is the revelation that the Himalayan 452 will be available in multiple variants. One of these variants will boast cross-spoke wheels and tubeless tires, a rare combination in this segment. The other variant will feature conventionally fitted spokes with tube-type tires. Furthermore, it's expected that cross-spoke wheels will be available as accessories, along with a range of equipment, including crash guards, panniers, seats, and windscreens.
While certain details are shrouded in secrecy, some noteworthy features have been unveiled. The Himalayan 452 will sport full-LED lighting, ensuring superior visibility and style. The motorcycle will also be equipped with a distinctive circular TFT screen. What sets this display apart is its Bluetooth capability, allowing riders to connect and access vital information, including Google Maps, speed, range, and odometer readings. The inclusion of switchable ABS is also anticipated, enhancing the safety quotient of this adventure bike.
Power and Performance:
Under the hood, the Himalayan 452 packs a punch with a 452cc, liquid-cooled engine. This marks a significant milestone for Royal Enfield, as it's the manufacturer's first foray into liquid-cooled technology. The engine churns out an impressive 39.57bhp and delivers around 40-45Nm of torque. It's coupled with a responsive six-speed gearbox for a dynamic and versatile riding experience. Despite the incorporation of additional equipment and a larger engine, sources suggest that the Himalayan 452 will be lighter than its predecessor, the Himalayan 411. The bike will feature upside-down forks and a monoshock, with braking duties managed by a single front and rear disc.
Enthusiasts eagerly await the official pricing of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452, with expectations that it will be competitively priced in the range of Rs 2.50-2.60 lakh, ex-showroom. This pricing strategy positions the Himalayan 452 as a strong contender in the adventure motorcycle segment, poised to take on rivals such as the KTM 390 Adventure, BMW G310 GS, and the Yezdi Adventure.
