Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 Spotted in a New Black and Gold Avatar
The upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 has been caught on camera once more, this time sporting a black colour with golden highlights and wheels. The new Himalayan 452 is set to make its global debut in the first week of November at the EICMA 2023 in Milan, and we are eagerly waiting to ride it.
The bike in the picture is one of the many colour options that Royal Enfield will offer for the Himalayan 452. We have also seen the bike in white, red with grey, grey with blue, and white with grey. Moreover, the new Himalayan has been tested with both cross-spoke wheels with tubeless tyres and regular spoke wheels with tubed tyres. So, the brand might give the option of choosing the cross-spokes as an extra feature.
The Himalayan 452 will come with LED lights and a fully digital TFT display with a lot of information. We have also noticed that the instrument panel has Google Maps, which is a first for a Royal Enfield bike. Additionally, there will be smartphone connectivity for more convenience and rider aids such as ABS, side stand cut-off, and others.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 will be powered by a 452cc, liquid-cooled engine. It will produce 39.57bhp at 8,000rpm and is expected to deliver around 40-45Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed transmission. Our sources have also told us that the Himalayan’s weight could be around 196kg, which makes it lighter than the current Himalayan 411. It will have USD front forks and a monoshock, while the braking system will consist of a single front and rear disc.
We think that the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 will have different variants and its price will be around 2.6 lakh (ex-showroom).
