Customized Royal Enfield Himalayan
After taking a look at the DC Design Royal Enfield, here is a customized Himalayan. Inline3 Custom Motorcycles has built their 5th bike, transforming the Royal Enfield Himalayan into a salt racer. The bike sports a new body panel and tank and sits on a new platform while ride height has been lowered.
Body work is seen in aluminum while front forks sport a custom stainless triple tree with gun metal studs. Clip-on handlebars receive period grips while it is the extensive use of aluminum throughout its makeup that has resulted in a lighter weight by 20 kgs.
The Customized Royal Enfield Himalayan continues to sport its 411cc single cylinder, air cooled engine offering 24.5 bhp peak power at 6,500 rpm and 32Nm peak torque at 4,000 to 4,500 rpm. While the engine too has been given a lightweight stance, it has in no way affected performance.
Set to be showcased as a display motorcycle at South Delhi Motorcycles, the RE Himalayan receives dummy rear shock absorbers and fitted with Firestone tyres.
The all new Royal Enfield Himalayan FI made its European debut at the EICMA 2016 earlier this month. It receives analog instrumentation with speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge along with digital display for trip readings, odometer, time, compass and ambient temperature. It will launch in European markets in early 2017 while the Indian bike maker has already appointed official importer and distributor for Europe.
