RE Himalayan 452 – What you need to know!
The latest unveil from Royal Enfield of the Himalayan 452 reveals many details like it has mountain graphics on the body painted in white colour, rides on the USD fork suspension at front, and monoshock adjustable suspension at rear, and a new digital instrument cluster. Moreover, the Himalayan 452, is equipped with a 452cc liquid-cooled engine generating power of 39.45 BHP at 8,000 RPM.
This observation also highlights the presence of big fork protectors on the front mudguard. Despite its off-road capabilities, both the rider’s and pillion’s seats seems accommodating. This should come as no surprise since most Himalayan owners tend to load up their bikes with luggage and often ride with a passenger on long journeys.
The bike’s new fender and overall stance exude a more muscular and purposeful appearance, departing from the slim profile of the current model. The large, curvy fuel tank adds to this substantial look. Moreover, the new stubby exhaust muffler boasts improved finishing compared to the exhaust found on the Himalayan 411.
Considering the enhanced performance of the new engine, it’s plausible to anticipate increased ground clearance and improved suspension travel compared to the existing Himalayan 411. When the Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 debuts in India this November, it will enter a competitive market, going head-to-head with rivals such as the KTM 390 Adventure and the BMW G 310 GS.
