New Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Is The Roar Of The Mountain. (Price, Specifications, Features and Overall)

The Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 adventure tourer bike has 452cc. The Himalayan 450 weighs 196 kg and has a 17-liter fuel tank in addition to disc brakes on both the front and rear ends. The gearbox on the Himalayan 450 has six speeds. Himalayan 450 comes in four variations and five stunning colours. The BMW G 310 GS, KTM 390 Adventure X, and KTM 390 Duke are fierce competitors for the Himalayan 450 given its price and specifications.

With the new Himalayan, the brand has stuck to the rugged and versatile roots of the Himalayas. The design approach is unique, but it still borrows some cues from the 411, like the circular headlamp and the metal frame connecting the fuel tank to the headlamp unit.

Because of its long beak and 21-inch front wheel, the fascia has the most rugged touch. Even though it's not very large, the windscreen gives the motorcycle some noticeable weight. The bike's side profile captured my attention for a long moment. The motorcycle has an air of grandeur thanks to its enormous fuel tank, exposed chassis tubes, compact exhaust and spoke wheels. With turn indicators and integrated brake lights, the rear of the Himalayan 452 is inspired by the Hunter 350.

A brand-new 452cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine powers the Himalayan 450. This motor produces 40 Nm at 5,500 rpm and 40 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. However, because of the testing grounds' high altitude, it could only produce about 28–29 bhp. There were some performance restrictions as a result. The motor sounds and feels fairly smooth. It lacks the coarseness of the Himalayan 411, and the overall NVH is well under control.

Suspension and brakes
The forthcoming Himalayan 452 features a monoshock suspension system with 200mm of wheel travel and a 43mm upside-down (USD) fork. Two 320mm discs—one with a double-piston calliper and the other with a switchable dual-channel ABS—are responsible for the braking.

In terms of overall performance, the Himalayan 452 did not have the 411's low-end performance character. The motorcycle feels a little monotonous up until 2,500 rpm, but the Royal Enfield team assured us that this is because of the altitude. There is a significant torque surge after 1,500 rpm at sea level. Because the performance in the first four gears is so subtle and only appropriate for city roads, eco mode is hardly ever used.

When it comes to features, the ADV is equipped with a 4-inch circular TFT instrument console that can control music and phones, full-featured Google Maps integrated navigation, and connectivity for helmet communication devices. A USB C-type charging port, all-LED lighting with integrated turn signals and a taillight, switchable ABS, and ride-by-wire technology with riding modes are also included.

  • Receives a liquid-cooled 452cc engine. 
  • Renowned for its off-road strength. 
  • Has excellent ground clearance. 
  • Bite on levers. 
  • Does not come with standard tubeless spoke wheels. 

The starting price of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Base variant is Rs. 3,13,553. The remaining versions, the Himalayan 450 Pass, Himalayan 450 Summit, and the Himalayan 450 Hanle Black, are priced at Rs. 3,19,058, Rs. 3,24,564, and Rs. 3,30,069, respectively.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has the capacity to completely reshape the market. This ADV fulfils every requirement. Its large appearance adds to its aspirational value right away. Then there are the features that have added a lot of modernity to the motorcycle, like the TFT screen, Google maps, riding modes, and availability of numerous body kits. Both on and off road, the 450cc engine produces strong performance. Furthermore, the Himalayan 411 can easily reach speeds of 120 kmph on highways, which is something we have all been waiting for. It can lean in quite a bit, turns quickly, and changes directions with ease. Moreover, the off-road performance is astounding due to its ability to withstand severe impacts. 

However, this Royal Enfield loses some points because of a few things, including the lack of spoke wheels at launch, bite on the levers, and knuckle guards. The new Himalayan will have the biggest impact on the Indian travel motorcycle market to date if Royal Enfield can keep the price tag under or around Rs. 3 lakh when it comes to on-road pricing.
