Launched with a purpose of creating a distinct sub-category under adventure touring, the Himalayan has been hugely successful and has a growing community of adventure riders across the globe.

Purpose-built and practical, the Himalayan debuted in 2016, and over the last 5 years, it has definitively carved out a strong category of accessible adventure touring across the world.

A simple, capable, and ‘go-anywhere’ motorcycle, the Himalayan was inspired by Royal Enfield’s experience of over 50 years of riding across the Himalayas.

The Himalayan today is recognized as a truly capable adventure tourer by global motorcycle experts, has been featured on the covers of top global automobile magazines, and is among the leading Royal Enfield motorcycles being sold across several geographies, including Europe, America, Latin America and South-East Asia.

Commenting on the journey of the Himalayan and the launch of the new motorcycle, Vinod K Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield said, “In a short span of just 5 years, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has opened up a new category within global adventure touring, has successfully established itself as a truly global motorcycle, and has been among the most sought after motorcycle for Royal Enfield across several geographies."

"The originally developed 2016 Himalayan was a category first and was a very versatile and accessible motorcycle," he added.

Inspired by its community and riding enthusiasts, the Himalayan has consistently evolved with aesthetic as well as functional upgrades to enhance the overall ride experience, both on and off the road.

The new Himalayan retains the original versatility and vigour and makes the ride experience more engaging by adding the Royal Enfield Tripper, a focused navigation display device for real-time directions, built with Google Maps Platform and paired via the Royal Enfield App to the rider’s smartphone.
