The much-awaited Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has been spotted again during road tests and it is expected to make its official debut at EICMA 2023. The debut is set for November anticipating the launch for the following year. The latest spy images have allowed us to get a better look at the impending Himalayan 450.
It has a modern design that is more aesthetic due to its rounded look. Retro-style elements like the instrument dial and round headlamp are all still present. Himalayan 450 will be like the present Himalayan in dimensions, except for the seat height. With foot pegs and an ergonomic handlebar, riding comfort seems to be right. The rider seat should be able to offer enough lumbar support when scooted up.
For the first time for RE, HImalayan 450 will receive an all-digital instrument cluster. Despite the fact that the Himalayan 450 will be a more advanced motorcycle, RE will ensure that it maintains its price advantage. The company has always prided itself on offering competitive pricing.
The anticipated price of Himalayan 450 is between Rs 2.60 lakh and Rs 2.70 lakh. It is more expensive than the existing Himalayan, which has a starting price of about Rs 2.20 lakh. But it will be more affordable than the majority of its rivals, including the 390 Adventure. As it has a starting price of Rs 3.04 lakh (ex-showroom).
Although the current Himalayan is one of the top options in its class, enthusiasts felt that its 24.3 horsepower and 32 Nm output were a little underwhelming. The upcoming Himalayan 450 may produce roughly 30 horsepower and a peak torque of 40 Nm.
The RE Himalayan 450 might not be able to match every feature offered by competitors, but the Himalayan 450 will close the performance difference. Himalayan 450 may become another top seller for Royal Enfield when coupled with competitive pricing.
