Vinod Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield India, said “The Himalayan is a distinctive adventure tourer which has performed admirably well, both in India and international markets. Since 2016, the Himalayan has served as a versatile, accessible and un-intimidating ally to many adventures across the world. The launch of the new BS6 Himalayan with its unique features and design functions gives us confidence that it will resonate with riders, setting new standards for adventure motorcycling in the country.”
For the improvement of the braking mechanism of the motorcycle, the company took feedback from current owners. The side-stand on the new 2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan will allow for a little leaner, making it easier to mount and dismount the motorcycle. Lastly, the motorcycle will also have a hazard lamp switch along with a slightly tweaked instrument panel with white backlight.
