    The upcoming Himalayan will likely receive no major mechanical updates; gets smaller metal frame towards the front of the tank.

    The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan has been spied testing in its production-ready guise, revealing that it will feature the Tripper navigation system we first saw on the recently launched Meteor 350.

    The test mule sports an additional pod on the right side of its existing digi-analog instrument cluster. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Tripper system, it’s the manufacturer’s Google-powered turn-by-turn navigation system. It works alongside the Royal Enfield app after pairing the phone to the system using Bluetooth. The screen, however, does not display incoming messages or calls.

    The Royal Enfield Himalayan is the manufacturer’s adventure motorcycle and a go-to for a buyer looking to explore on two-wheels and the Tripper system will definitely come as a welcome addition to the Himalayan’s repertoire.

    Another change we noticed from the spy shots is in the metal frame that is mounted towards the front of the tank. On the current iteration of the bike, it would sometimes come into contact with the knees of taller riders, and Royal Enfield seemed to have addressed that with the upcoming model by using a smaller, more forward-set unit.

    There’s no official word on how soon the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will be out in the market but, from the looks of it, an official launch should happen soon. Considering the added feature, it’s also likely to cost a little more than its current Rs 1.91 lakh ex-showroom price.

    Apart from the Himalayan, Royal Enfield is working on a number of other new products like a new Classic 350, a 650cc cruiser and more. You can click here to read more about these bikes.
