Spy images – from what looks to be Royal Enfield’s factory yard – have completely revealed the new snow-camouflage colour scheme for the new Himalayan. The new colour scheme features an angular camouflage pattern on matte-grey panels and looks to be inspired from the rocky snow-covered Himalayan terrain. Royal Enfield has also been teasing this new “Sleet” colour along with a date of January 12, on its social media platforms.
The new colour scheme is expected to be an additional colour scheme and should not replace the outgoing solid white and black colour options. As we know, the company has also recently updated its Himalayan to correct the previous bike’s reputation for low reliability. The biggest change on the updated Himalayan is that it now uses a fuel-injection system instead of a carburettor; the company has done this in order to meet BS4 norms. The bike has also undergone other small changes – like the addition of a small metal guard on the oil cooler and matte-black powder coating for the fuel tank cap, and bar-end weights and luggage mounts below the rear seat.
Royal Enfield had re-introduced the updated Himalayan, last year for Rs 1.65 lakh. This price has now been revised to Rs 1.67 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, we expect this snow-camouflaged Himalayan to be priced slightly higher.
