Royal Enfield will launch a new camouflage colour option for the Himalayan on January 12.
Inspired by the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas, Royal Enfield will introduce a camouflage colour option for the Himalayan. The Himalayan was first introduced in 2016 and has since been offered in only two colour options – Black and White. Initially, the Himalayan was sold with a carburettor with the 411cc, single-cylinder engine, but since the introduction of the new emission norms, Royal Enfield introduced the fuel injection version of the adventure motorcycle in September 2017.
Now Royal Enfield has released teaser videos on social media with the message that they will launch a new camouflage colour option on January 12.
The Himalayan sports a bare basic, minimalistic style that makes the bike lighter and tougher, prioritising function over form. The engine churns out 24.4bhp and 32Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed transmission. For off-road riding, the Himalayan comes equipped with long-travel suspension at the front and the rear and is bolted to 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoke wheels. A new colour choice will be offered for the bike, and the price will most likely remain similar to the standard bike.
Additionally, Royal Enfield will soon introduce their new 648cc parallel-twin engine with the new Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650 in India. Both motorcycles made their debut at EICMA 2017. Therefore, with the introduction of the new Royal Enfield Continental GT, Royal Enfield has now discontinued the older model – Continental GT 535 in the final quarter of 2017.
