Royal Enfield Himlayan was launched earlier this year in India with just two colour options of black and white.

Designed to take on the most challenging of terrains in the country, Royal Enfield Himalayan is all set to collect even more brownie points, thanks to this new color option.

Seen at a dealership in Ahmedabad, this decked up and accessorized variant of new Himalayan is finished in fan-favourite Army Green shade. It also gets jerrycan on each side of the fuel tank in same colour along with army green coloured cloth panniers with leather straps.

Royal Enfield Himalayan is the newest motorcycle from the oldest Indian motorcycle maker. It receives a new chassis from Harris Performance making the bike even more adaptable to traffic and travelling conditions in India. Dual purpose tyres, high ground clearance, a large 21” front wheel and a 14 liter fuel tank are among its features.

It also gets a single round headlight, an instrument panel with analogue dials and a large speedometer with readouts in mph and kmph. Other features include a digital selector gear indicator, two trip meters, an odometer and clock while two small dials house a dual gauge and digital compass.

Last month, Royal Enfield Himalayan were recalled over issues with faulty rocker shaft and clutch assembly. The company called it a ‘proactive free service update’ and stated that the issues were not of critical nature but needed to be inspected and parts replaced. The company also addressed issues of the stand touching the body and problems with the sari guard design.

  • Looks good,I liked FZ’s battle green colour more though.

  • brvnbld

    But , aren’t army colored vehicles banned for public use?

    • madhvendu

      No brother, it ain’t army coloured
      Coz it doesn’t have those camouflage (those are banned)

      • brvnbld

        hm., understood mate.

  • Net Troll

    Let’s see how many idiots on 2 wheels actually buy this junker and showoff collecting darwin awards.

    • Hardik Vyas

      and you ride what..?

      • Net Troll

        Many ride’s that might be too much for pea-brained RE fanbois out there to understand. From Bajaj, KTM, Harley, Suzuki including Hero. Does that answer your question? Oh before you start with some RE is God stuff, I’ve even got a 1950 Bullet in family and that is the worst of all, even a 100cc is more trustworthy and agile than that junk metal blob.

        • Hardik Vyas

          Dude… why are you so angry…? It was a genuine question to know which bike you ride… as simple as that…

          • Net Troll

            Congrats Hardik, the only reason I don’t like RE is that the company is taking the riders for granted. Look at all the other manufacturers improvising day and night but these guys are only cashing in on the cult following. Would it be such a biggie to actually roll out a V-Twin collaborating with the guy in USA who built the musket? Why don’t RE come up with premium cruisers with better safety like ABS, CBS, anti-theft mechanism and of-course TUBELESS BLOODY TYRES. God forbid if you have a flat somewhere off road, I pity the situation. You see small changes would be highly appreciated by people who spent nearly 30 years riding on Indian roads from rural farms to Yamuna Expressway.

            ATTENTION ??
            A bad news for RE haters and a good news for RE lovers, RE is testing a 750cc parallel twin engine which is planned to be released soon and would bring back the legacy of THE INTERCEPTOR
            (check the net)

          • Net Troll

            Duhh! ages ago the Musket was made by an individual and featured on Jay Leno’s garage, if interceptor is worth everyone including myself will buy it. Till then Happy Riding your so called off roader while others enjoy their cruisers and sport bikes.

          • madhvendu

            With due respect to your hate towards RE,may I kindly know that which bike do you ride,and for God’s sake please take a test drive before you comment. Not all RE lovers are pea brained, I have taken my dad’s Harley to the khardungla pass so I think that I have enough experience to comment on offroading capabilities and BELIEVE ME the himalayan can handle offroading easily. Although I think it might lose some power on high altitude areas like khardungla, (correct me if I am wrong) ?

          • Net Troll

            Based on my requirement I ride them, Duke for most practical reasons and Harley for absolute leisure. Rest all for everyday needs based on weather.

            Agreed that Himalayan is built for high altitudes but let’s face the most common issues:
            1>No tubeless tyres: Offroading may get really sour in case of flat.
            2>Fuel Injection: AFR changes from one altitude to another, a nice fuel injector with wide band oxygen sensor would do wonders when the bike starts to splutter and cough due to oxygen deprived altitudes. Not everyone is a carby wizard.
            3>No ABS: It’s understood that you would like to have some high speed fun and ABS would only add a couple of bucks for those times you may wish that your guardian angel flew faster than you did, if I had to think of safety I wouldn’t mind adding 50K for cornering ABS+Traction

            See the list can go on and we can argue as much as you want but what I mean is RE needs to improvise so that they can cater to different type of audience and not be obtuse.

          • all offroad bikes come with tube tires, you cant have spokes on tubeless tires… and all offroading bikes got to have spokes else the rim will bend… alloy wheels would break under pressure

          • Totally agree,RE is looting people in the name of cult,legend bike,retro,vintage bike whatever tag they have put.Inspite of giving stone age technology,low quality parts and un reliable engine with vibrations still there are many who buys the bike,i really feel sorry for them.

        • madhvendu

          Dude stop f**king around about those plastic toys
          I got my himalayan 6 days ago and at 182 kgs, having a speed of 145 says a lot about it’s power, and with the new chassis it’s very nimble also.
          For your info, I also own a RC 390,dad drives a Harley street and a pulsar 220dts-fi and boxer AT 100 are resting in the garage

          • Hardik Vyas

            Congrats man.. i got mine 15 days back..

          • madhvendu

            Happy mile munching ?

          • Net Troll

            Plastic toys, seriously? Never saw a plastic Street Bob manufactured till date unless you have only seen table top replica toys. Himalayan blob doesn’t come close to the Duke 390 when it comes to performance and safety features even though Duke is plastic. Now before you talk about 145 kmph on Himalayan I wonder which part of body would remain intact if you need to panic brake without ABS. Good for you that you bought Himalayan and I wouldn’t mind purchasing another Duke with added 20 or 30K than what you’ve spent. Happy Offroading if you can manage it.

    it’s a custom paint job. Not a stock color from RE.
