While the current Himalayan has loyal followers’ thanks to its all-terrain capabilities and low price, some may think that the 24.3hp engine could use a little push.

Based on new development by an Indian website, the plans are now underway at the Chennai-based factory.

Interestingly, there were no initial plans to kickstart the new project; however, thanks to the company new directive, Royal Enfield decided to inject the Himalayan with a bigger engine.

The 650cc Himalayan will be available in two variants, one with a more adventure setup and another as a sports tourer.
