New Delhi, November 24, 2022: Royal Enfield, the global leader in the mid-size (250cc – 750cc) motorcycling segment, introduced three distinctive, terrain-inspired colorways of the Himalayan along with a range of upgrades. The versatile adventure-touring motorcycle will now be available in Glacier Blue, Sleet Black and Dune Brown, in addition to the existing colorways Gravel Grey, Pine Green and Granite Black. Showcased at Rider Mania 2022, the new Himalayan will feature a neat debossed logo on the grill and side panels, and a USB charging port for on-the-go convenience.
Commenting on the launch of the new colorways, B Govindarajan, Chief Executive Officer, Royal Enfield said “Launched in 2016, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has been a stellar performing motorcycle in our portfolio. Developed and designed from decades of experience of riding in the mountains, and thousands of kilometers of traversing some of the toughest terrain, the Himalayan has undoubtedly created a new segment of accessible adventure touring for riders across the world. A simple, versatile, go-anywhere motorcycle, the Himalayan has resonated well with millions of adventure aficionados and has brought in new riding enthusiasts into the Royal Enfield community. The reliable and consistent performance of the Himalayan coupled with the introduction of these new terrain-inspired hues will definitely add more colour to every adventure.”
An ode to Royal Enfield’s experience of over 50 years of riding across the Himalayas, the three new colorways of the Himalayan are inspired by the epic terrain, vastness and the grandeur of the Himalayas. The Glacier Blue takes inspiration from the crystal clear glacial lakes that adorn the Himalayas, while the Dune Brown represents the cold Himalayan deserts of Hunder situated in Nubra Valley, Ladakh. Royal Enfield has also brought back the popular Sleet pattern, but in a new Black version called the Sleet Black, which is inspired by the glistening razor-sharp sleet on rock surfaces.
Inspired by the community and riding enthusiasts, the Himalayan since its inception in 2016, has consistently evolved with aesthetic as well as functional upgrades to enhance the overall ride experience, both on and off the road.
Starting today, the new motorcycle will be available for booking and test rides across all Royal Enfield stores in India starting at INR 2,15,900, (ex-showroom, Chennai), November 24, 2022 onwards.
