The Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 adventure motorcycle is classified as a derivative version of the Interceptor 650. According to the company, the motorcycle will be extensively reworked to serve its primary purpose. New details on the Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 clearly indicate that the company is determined to make a statement in the luxury adventure travel segment. A release date for the Himalayan 650 is still uncertain, but it’s likely to come after the production-spec SG650 and 650 Scrambler hit the market.

Speaking of design, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 has a scooped rider seat, a wide passenger seat, and a taller windscreen that should provide adequate wind protection along with a tail rack. Other ADV features include a rear luggage rack, high-mounted exhaust outlets and sump guards. Also, the adventure bike appears to have more ground clearance than the Interceptor and Continental GT 650.

You’ll have fun looking at the weight of this adventure bike. The Interceptor already weighs about 200 kg, and the Super Meteor 650 weighs well over 240 kg. Designed to take a beating, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 almost certainly weighs less than the Interceptor. The Himalayan 650 has a 19-inch front wheel rather than a 21-inch unit.

Coming as a powertrain, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 will likely be powered by the same 648cc air-cooled, parallel-twin SOHC engine found in the RE Interceptor 650 and RE Continental GT 650. The fuel injected engine produces 47 bhp and 52 Nm of torque. . It will be the company’s third model to be manufactured on the 650cc platform. Like the 650cc twin, the Himalayan 650 sports a six-speed gearbox with slip-assist clutch.


In terms of features, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 is equipped with a TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity, a one-stage traction control system, multiple riding modes and more. The upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 is expected to be available in two variants, one with alloy wheels and one with wire spoke wheels, with prices starting at £4 lakh.

Royal Enfield, in particular, continues to dominate the roads as the world’s oldest international motorcycle manufacturer. In November 2022, the brand sold over 70,000 motorcycles, up 37% year-over-year. In the same month last year, 51,654 units were sold.
