    Will the new Royal Enfield Himalayan get tubeless wire spoke wheels in India? If so, when?

    Karan, via email

    Autocar India says: The new Royal Enfield Himalayan already comes equipped with tubeless wire-spoke wheels but currently these are limited to export units only. The issue here is that for the wheels to be made available in India, they need to come from a BIS-approved (Bureau of Indian Standards) supplier, and we understand that this certification process has not yet taken place. We are told that the process is currently ongoing, and once completed, the tubeless wire spoke wheels will be offered in India as well. Expect to see them in the coming months. What isn't clear yet, though, is whether they will be offered as standard fitment, or be limited to a higher variant, or be sold only as an accessory.

    This is a major concern in my opinion. I really suffered a lot with tubed tyres on my Interceptor 650. I used to get a puncture almost every month and it was a pain to get is fixed. Therefore, since I am considering to buy the new Himalayan it will be appreciated if some more clarity can be provided on the same. If I understood the above correctly, the current Himalayan is already having tubeless spoked wheels and tubeless tyres, but with a tube inside until approvals are done. So, is it just a matter of removing the tube once approved? or Do we need to change the wheels? If we have to change the wheels will there be a trade in option for the old wheels?
