Should You Buy It? Let Royal Enfield first demonstrate the capabilities of this new model and wait for some reliable rider review before spending more than INR 2 lakh on Himalayan. It is one game changing product but still, first round never met expectations of riders on quality.

Royal Enfield Himalayan ABS Review

15 Nov, 2018 11:46 AM

Overview

Launched as every tourer’s dream, the Royal Enfield Himalayan Fi is a full-fledged off-roader that has an ability to conquer every terrain imaginable. The game-changing product started on a high note since its release but had to handle several up and downs similar to the roads it has promised to conquer. With a BS IV engine at its heart, the bike was supposed to win the rendered hearts but having an ultimate share of failures and complaints did let it get beyond the game after its first anniversary. The Royal Enfield Himalayan Fi rivals Mahindra Mojo in the Indian market.

 

The Royal Enfield Himalayan Fi is powered by 411cc, Single cylinder 4 strokes, LS400 overhead cam engine, air-cooled, SOHC engine that offers a maximum power of 24.5 BHP @ 6500 rpm and an utmost torque of 32 NM @ 4250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Coming to the design specifications, the Himalayan blueprint has not been tampered with and the larger front wheels with an exposed frame give it a sturdy stance. The headlight immersed between the windscreen does get an AHO feature. The overall black look does justice to its originality and the impressive look.

The half-analogue and half-digital instrument console is something everyone can appreciate since it’s equipped with all the modern technologies on hand. The suspension duties are handled by a 41mm Telescopic Forks at the front while the rear tyre gets a Mono-shock with linkage. The Royal Enfield Himalayan Fi gets 300mm Disc brakes at the front with a 2-piston floating caliper and 240mm Disc brakes at the rear with a 1-piston floating caliper.

The comfortable saddle height and an impressive blend of all the features does make it one of the successful aspirants as a tourer. The tall handlebars are something quite difficult for smaller riders and better for handling rough terrains. The higher kerb weight and somewhat relaxed ergonomics make the rider question the Himalayan Fi on sharp corners. Considering all the downsides, there still some exquisite features that make the Royal Enfield Himalayan Fi worth grabbing such as plenty of torque to handle the kerb weight and the fuel injection addition actually does a great job with the power.
