The upcoming Himalayan 450 has been spotted without disguise.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has been spotted once again, this time in the UK. The motorcycle was spotted at a petrol pump completely without a disguise, hinting that it could be close to production.
The latest spy shot confirms a few more speculations we already had about the motorcycle. On offer are USD forks at the front, a monoshock at the rear and wire spoke wheels. The size of the wheels appears to be 21-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear. Additionally, the monoshock at the rear seems to be unusually long and at an angle, which could be aimed at lowering the seat height.
The motorcycle was also seen with a radiator mounted just in front of the cylinder head, confirming that it will be liquid-cooled unlike other single-cylinder RE motorcycles in the stable. Also on offer will be a large vertically oriented instrument cluster.
Other notable speculations include a dual-channel ABS, LED lighting all around and a digital instrument cluster. While the test mule appears to be ready the company is not expected to officially drop the wraps till next year. Once launched in India, the Himalayan 450 will take on the likes of the KTM 390 Adventure and the Yezdi Adventure.
