Royal Enfield unveils all-terrain bike Himalayan

Royal Enfield on Tuesday unveiled Himalayan, an all-terrain 411 cc motorcycle, as part of its plans to expand its product range in the mid-sized bike segment.

The company, which is the two-wheeler arm of Eicher Motors, currently sells various popular models like Bullet, Classic, Thunderbird and Continental GT.

The company has been working on the model for the last five years and has tested it across various terrains, Royal Enfield CEO Siddhartha Lal told reporters here.

The bike, which comes with 220 mm ground clearance, would be launched commercially in middle of March.

Himalayan comes with five speed gearbox and 24.5 BHP engine. The company would also sell accessories to go with the ‘go anywhere’ bike.

When asked if the bike would also be exported, Lal said the focus first would be to establish the brand in India.

 Himalayan is the first model to come out of the two new engine platforms the company is developing.
