  • Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 has registered sales of 1619 units in July 2019, as compared to 811 in July 2018.

  • While Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 registered a 100% growth, the sales of Royal Enfield Classic 350 dropped by 33% on a Y-to-Y basis.

  • The leader of the pack is 650 twins, the Continental GT and Interceptor with sales of 2,225 units in July 2019.

Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 has performed well despite the circumstances with a growth of 100% over July 2019. The sales of 1,619 units came as a surprise to the industry because they believed that the clientele of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 400, comprised of hard-core off-road enthusiasts.

With the 650 twins registering a phenomenal growth, one can see a shift in the preference of buyers for the 650cc bikes over 400cc ones. 

The Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 features a 4-stroke engine with a displacement capacity of 411cc. This long-stroke engine can generate 24.5bhp power and 32Nm torque. A 5-speed manual transmission gearbox pairs perfectly with this fuel-injection engine.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Reported 100% Sales Growth

Royal Enfield has experimented with the body by moving away from their usual cruiser-styled bikes. The Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 has been developed keeping the challenging Himalayan terrain in mind.

Royal Enfield is designing a 650cc version of the Himalayan. One expects the new version to have an engine similar to what the 650 twins have. This 648cc twin-cylinder engine can deliver 47bhp of power and a torque of 52Nm. It will feature a 6-speed gearbox. 

Though Royal Enfield is involved in a legal imbroglio over the patent rights infringement for BS6 technology, they are working towards launching the BS6 compliant motorcycles including the Himalayan series in India soon.
