The 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan is now available for booking at RM36,880 (basic price without GST).
Powered by their latest LS 410 engine, the 411cc adventure bike produces 24.5hp and 32Nm of torque.
RE Motorcycles Sdn Bhd will be offering the new Himalayan in two different colours; Granite and Snow.
It was late last year when Royal Enfield launched the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan, an entry-level adventure bike with a bit more grunt, power, and style. It was promised to reach markets around the world around June and Royal Enfield Malaysia (RE Motorcycles Sdn Bhd) delivered the promise when the bike was brought over last week.
With a price tag of RM36,888 (basic price without GST), this purpose-built machine made for adventure and touring is now open for booking and it represents the future of Royal Enfield with a completely new bike and engine designed from the ground up.
Powered by their latest LS 410 engine which is a 411cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected power plant, the new Himalayan is able to produce a respectable 24.5hp at 6,500rpm and 32Nm of maximum torque at 4,250rpm. The result is a proper adventure machine with a flat torque curve that works brilliantly for both beginners and veterans alike.
According to Muhammad Syahrul, General Manager of RE Motorcycles Sdn Bhd, “The Himalayan is the culmination of Royal Enfield’s 60 years of enduring history in its spiritual home—the Himalayas. Large adventure tourers that currently define this category, do not fare well in the mountains like Himalayans as they are very heavy, extremely complicated, intimidating and not really designed for that environment.”
“With its purpose-built ground-up design, the Himalayan is a simple and capable go-anywhere motorcycle that will redefine adventure touring in Malaysia. Functionally, its non-intimidating Spartan design, a flat torque curve, accessible seat height and long suspension travel alongside the ease of ownership, make the Himalayan is an extremely versatile motorcycle that is adept for long rides while equally being the definitive choice to navigate our urban jungles. We believe the motorcycle will open gates for a new segment of customers for Royal Enfield in Malaysia”
Other featured specs on the new Himalayan include:
- 41mm telescopic fork with 200mm travel
- Monoshock with linkage that provides 180mm of travel
- 15-litre fuel tank
- 300mm front disc with a two-piston floating caliper
- 240mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper
- 21-inch front wheel; 17-inch rear wheel
There are two colour options available for the new 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan; Granite and Snow. Priced at RM36,880 (basic price without GST), you can now head over to any of the authorised Royal Enfield Malaysia dealerships scattered across the country.
