The handlebar provides great comfort and no strain for long rides. The suspension travel is perfect and absorbs every bump given on it. The seat is well-cushioned, it can carry luggage easily with the carrier. It is a mile muncher in every way.
Engine- Royal Enfield Himalayan comes with 411cc single cylinder 4 stroke engine which is also air-cooled and fuel injected. The low end torque is the best thing about this bike which helps out to get on any terrain. The SOHC engine churns out a maximum power of 24.3bhp @6500 RPM and a torque output of 32Nm @4000 to 4500 RPM, which is perfect in any conditions.
Performance- In Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6, the engine offers not only better performance but also it is more refined.

The fuel capacity is 15 ltrs which is good enough with a mileage of 30 kmpl providing a good tank range.
