The latest set of the Royal Enfield Himalayan spyshots reveal the instrument console for the first time. The adventure tourer which is slated to launch in early 2016 has been testing in and around Chennai regularly.

The comprehensive instrument console comprises four dials with two digital displays. The biggest dial accommodates the speedometer with both mph and kmph graduations in addition to a digital display for clock, odo and trip meters. The tachometer dial is relatively small. The two smallest dials house fuel gauge and a compass with digital altimeter.

The prototype spotted was kitted up with accessories such as a raised spatter guard in addition to the normal unit closer to the front tyre, windscreen, fuel tank protector, engine guard, rear luggage tray and side pannier holders. The spoke wheels get a disc brake each. The stock tyres would be from CEAT but a report suggests that Pirelli tyres would be offered as an option.

To recap, the Royal Enfield Himalayan adventure tourer is powered by a brand new 410 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which is reported to produce 28 PS and 32 Nm of torque. Transmission is likely to be a 5-speed unit.
