2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan Specifications

By | December 23, 2020

Royal Enfield North America has announced an important update for the Himalayas 2021. These updates include replaceable ABS to help riders ride off-road, revised rear brakes to improve braking performance, redesigned side bearings and a new hazard warning switch.

Even among other affordable adventure bikes, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is still very affordable. The ADV motorcycle does not have all the functions of the more expensive ADV motorcycles. But this is an honest off-roader and it is available at a lower price than some used models.


The Himalaya 2021 also has other features that make it an affordable adventure bike. It comes standard with a skid plate, upper crash bars, front and rear luggage racks, and an adjustable windscreen, Motorcyclist reports. It also has 8.6” of ground clearance, 7.1” of rear suspension travel, and 7.9” of front travel, Revzilla reports. Plus, the Himalayan’s gauge cluster comes with a speedometer, tachometer, LCD screen, fuel gauge, clock, and a compass, The Drive reports.

The new Royal Enfield Himalayan will be available in three new color lanes: Lake Blue and Rock Red and Gravel Gray, which complement the existing portfolio for Snow White, Granite Black and Sleet. The motorcycle is backed by a three-year warranty and starts at $ 4,999 at all Royal Enfield dealerships in North America.


Equipped with an air-cooled 411cc single-cylinder SOHC engine with EFI, the Himalaya is the only motorcycle it supports in the Royal Enfield range. The engine delivers 24.5 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 23.6 ft lbs of torque at 4500 rpm. No barn burner or head snapper, but enough for most drivers in clear target demos (all under 5’9 “) and for many driving / highway scenarios.

The Himalayan sports a 5-speed gearbox with extremely light and fluid clutch engagement, a chain final drive, a nice 31.5 seat height, and a 4 gallon fuel tank. It says about 70-75 mpg, which means about 260 (+ -) miles in the tank, depending on how it is driven. Great legs for a small engine. The wheelbase is 58 inches, the ground clearance is 8.6 inches and a pair of Pirelli MT60 tubular adventure tires front and rear on spoked rims.
