  • Royal Enfield to update Himalayan with a BS6-compliant engine next year.

  • The updated motorcycle retains most of its design elements.

  • The BS6 Royal Enfield Himalayan gets a toggle switch for ABS.

  • Royal Enfield expected to hike the price of the Himalayan.

A test mule of the BS6-compliant Royal Enfield Himalayan has been spotted without camouflage; which tells a lot about the upcoming bike’s design and new features. Overall, 2020 Himalayan retains the design of the outgoing bike, but RE has updated it with a few new features.

The updated feature list includes a new twin-pod instrument cluster with seven tell-tale lights instead of the five seen on the current model. It also features an additional switch to turn the ABS off for your off-roading escapades.

Apart from that, the updated bike gets a large windscreen and a redesigned hazard light switch. The BS6 Royal Enfield Himalayan will also get three new colour options – Rock Red, Gravel Grey, and Lake Blue. We also expect the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer to offer a set of new optional accessories with the motorcycle, including handguards, panniers and more.

The most important change, however, will be made to its motor. The BS4-compliant 411 cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine which makes 24.5hp of peak power at 6,5000 rpm, 32 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox, will now be upgraded to comply with the latest BS6 emission norms, which are set to come into action on April 1 next year.

The Himalayan gets a 41 mm telescopic fork upfront with 200 mm travel, along with a mono-shock at the rear. Braking duties are looked after by a 300 mm disc brake at the front, and a 240 mm disc at the rear, coupled to a dual-channel ABS.

The BS4-compliant Himalayan currently costs Rs 1.67 lakh (ex-showroom), but expect the prices to go up once Royal Enfield launches the updated model next year.
