Reasons To Be Owning a Royal Enfield Himalayan!

How many of you guys out there like adventure biking? This latest product of Royal Enfield has changed the way you look at adventure bikes and off-roaders in the country, and a vast majority of this audience (adventure bikers) now want to own a Royal Enfield Himalayan.

You may not get the wonderful ‘dug dug’ sound that you would expect from a classic Royal Enfield bike but then again, the company has made this bike in a completely different manner than how they made their bikes in the past. A new, refined engine, special high-grip tyres from CEAT, first RE vehicle with mono-shock suspension and much more.

We at Read Scoops tested the vehicle and it’s that kind of a motorbike that you would want to book just 5 minutes after having taken a test ride (speaking out of personal experience). RE had literally tried and tested this bike in the Himalayas for over a year before launching it and they seemed to have been successful, delivering on most promises made.

A couple of problems existed with the first lot of these bikes, with a clutch issue and mileage issues but overall, the bike is a 9.5/10 as the later batches of these bikes improved on what was lacking earlier. A 120/90 rear tyre and a massive 21 inch front tyre makes mountain biking really easy and taking this bike off road is the most comfortable experience ever. We feel that if the bike was given a little bit more bhp, then it wouldn’t certainly gone from impressive to outstanding!


The Himalayan is currently available in two colours – Snow and Granite, but we may see a launch of few more colours depending on the success of this bike. The launch of the first lot with faulty bikes have left people slightly skeptical and also, Indian requirements may not match with this product.

Royal Enfield Himalayan specifications:

Displacement – 411 cc

Power – 24.5 bhp (A bit more power and this would be a monstrous bike)
