New spy shots of the upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 have revealed the motorcycle's fully-digital instrument cluster for the first time. The new cluster is a major departure from the current Himalayan's semi-digital unit.
The cluster features a circular display with a large tachometer in the centre, flanked by a digital speedometer and other readouts. The cluster also appears to have Bluetooth connectivity, which would allow riders to connect their smartphones to the bike for navigation and other features.
Key features of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450's instrument cluster:
- Large, round tachometer
- Digital speedometer
- Fuel gauge
- Gear indicator
- Trip computer
The new instrument cluster is likely to be part of a wider suite of updates for the Himalayan 450, which is expected to be powered by a new 450cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. The new engine is expected to produce around 40 HP and 45 Nm of torque and will be paired with a six-speed gearbox.
The Himalayan 450 is also expected to feature a new chassis, suspension, and brakes. The new chassis is expected to be lighter and stiffer than the current Himalayan's, and the suspension is expected to be more capable off-road. The brakes are also expected to be upgraded, with larger rotors and calipers.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is expected to be launched in India in early 2024 and is likely to be priced around Rs. 2.50-2.75 lakhs. The Himalayan 450 will be a major upgrade over the current Himalayan and is expected to be a more capable and comfortable motorcycle for both on-road and off-road use.
