Royal Enfield Himlayan roars with Akropovic exhaust – Video

 
Royal Enfield Himalayan with Akrapovic exhaust

Royal Enfield also offers after market accessories.

A Royal Enfield Himalayan adventure tourer in Kochi has undergone aftermarket modification. The new component in this case is an Akropovic exhaust system.

Reported to be priced at INR 3,000, the exhaust system gives the motorcycle a very sporty and loud note. The crackling sound at the end adds to the drama. It also enhances aesthetics.

Warranty for the adventure tourer will not hold when an unofficial aftermarket performance part is employed. RE does offer a different silencer as an accessory.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is powered by a new 410 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which is tuned to deliver 24.5 bhp and 32 Nm of torque. The motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.

Engineered to endure the unforgiving Himalayan mountain range, the adventure tourer employs long travel telescopic front fork and rear monoshock, spoke wheels, and on-off road tyres. The motorcycle has no direct rival in the market but the Mahindra Mojo and KTM Duke 390 can be perceived as rivals since they cater to the same price bracket.

Though the Royal Enfield Himalayan was developed to primarily cater to the Indian RE loyalists, the motorcycle has potential in several international markets as well. The new product is touted to be one of the primary volume spinners in the coming years.

    Akropovic exhaust system costs upwards of 20k. FYI.
