This WheelZine article draws up a comparison between the two by pitching them against one another. Lamborghini thus went on to create an automobile which had all the qualities he thought were essential in a luxury touring car, which were seriously lacking in the spartan Ferrari.
While the Himalayan is likeable in many ways unfortunately it was plagued by several issues, particularly pertaining to the engine that have taken away the essence of what the bike was intended to be - an affordable and hassle-free go-anywhere motorcycle.
This has certainly been a disappointment for the new breed of adventure seekers that the company targeted with it. That's a thing of the past now though, as Royal Enfield has launched a thoroughly refreshed and reworked Himalayan for Royal Enfield claims to have addressed all concerns with the previous version, apart from which the Himalayan also trades in the humble carburetor for a modern fuel injection system.
We put it through a thorough test to see how the bike is to ride. The cc, long stroke motor is fuel injected and meets BSIV emission norms The Royal Enfield Himalayan looks identical to the previous version, but the engine has received some serious updates.
The cc, air and cooled, long stroke, single-cylinder engine is BS IV compliant now, and as mentioned before also gets fuel injection. Power and torque figures haven't changed though and outputs still stand at That said, the BSIV motor feels a lot more refined than the carbureted version, as Royal Enfield has focused on the quality and fit-finish levels of the engine internals a lot more this time around.
And during the ride, the differences were noticeable. At idle there's barely any vibration through the handlebars or foot pegs and I was pleasantly surprised. Vibration is muted to quite an extent on the go and is only pronounced close to the top speed, which is around kmph. I also liked how cleanly the engine revs, even past its 6,rpm redline.
Most importantly, fuel injection has improved throttle response by miles. It's crisp and precise, allowing you to dial in just the right amount of throttle.
The benefits are even more apparent while riding off-road where you need to be very judicious with your throttle inputs. On the road the Himalayan is very impressive as a cruiser and those who like relaxed highway riding will appreciate this character.
While the carbureted Himalayan was happy around the kmph mark, the BSIV Himalayan does not mind cruising at kmph all day long. That said, personally I would have liked some more power and a sixth gear as well, as that would have made the Himalayan a much better tourer thanks to a higher cruising speed.
Fuel efficiency has gone up marginally as well, thanks to fuel injection. It's quite easy and natural to stand on the pegs and ride the Himalayan. A common complaint with the previous Himalayan was its engine overheating.
Royal Enfield has worked on the oil cooler to improve the circulation of oil around the heat exchanger. Throughout the test, whether in peak city traffic or on open roads at speeds, the engine was far from overheating.
As mentioned before, the Himalayan is exactly the same as before, visually at least. It still looks the same and though it may appear a little bare bones to a few, to me its focused design is a winner. Think of it this way, if you were to drop the Himalayan, the damage would be minimal as there are barely any panels.
I was also happy to notice the improved fit-finish levels. The weld spots on the frame are still visible but they are a lot cleaner than what we had seen on the first batch of Himalayans. Also, none of the panels came loose, neither were there any rattles throughout our test.
Royal Enfield has also worked on the quality of the plastic covers on the various bolt heads, particularly the ones on the swingarm, and apart from looking better visually they also fit better now.
All the changes effectively address the complaints with the BS III version, which is why we're told Royal Enfield took time to re-launch the Himalayan. The mm front disc offers more bite and better feedback. The front brake on the previous version of the Himalayan lacked bite and felt like a big drum brake, but the Bybre units on the new Himalayan offer a lot more bite.Press question mark to see available shortcut keys.
