Royal Enfield, the country’s leading performance bike maker, has recently launched the new facelift model of its famous adventure Tourer bike Himalayan in the domestic market. Decorated with a very attractive look and strong engine capacity, the company has made several big changes to this bike unlike the previous model.

It previously used a single-cylinder oil-cooled engine with a capacity of 411cc, producing 24.3bhp of power and 32Nm of torque. This engine comes with a 5 speed gearbox. The bike is the same in terms of engine and mechanism, but the company has made some changes in its design and features. So let’s learn about the 4 major changes in this bike –
1) – Tripper Navigation: The company has also used this feature in the recently released bike RE Meteor 350, now tripper navigation is also given in this new model of Hippolyon. This navigation system is mounted near the digital analog instrument console. To use it, you can connect to the Royal Enfield app from your smartphone. However, the display does not show incoming calls and messages.
2) – View and Design: The biggest change was seen in the new Himalayan form and design. It has a tan color seat with a large windshield and black heat shield on the exhaust ie silencer. The company pushed the Mattel frame slightly toward the tank, preventing the long driver from falling to his knees.
