    Updated Royal Enfield Himalayan to be launched this month

    Royal Enfield is expected to launch the updated Himalayan towards the end of January 2021.

    • New colours like silver and pine green

    • Minor change to the frame around the tank

    • Will feature Tripper Navigation

    The end of this month is expected to see the arrival of the updated Royal Enfield Himalayan. This new version comes around a year after the current model witnessed its last update while switching to BS6 form.

    2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan: Colours

    The leaked image you see above appears to be a studio shot for the company’s website and gives us a peek at one of the new colour schemes. While one of the dual-tone colours looks white in the image, it is actually expected to be a light shade of silver. The second colour appears to be black, mostly in a matte finish.

    Interestingly, the Himalayan is also expected to feature a new pine green shade for 2021. Whether that’ll be a dual-tone colour scheme remains to be seen. There are also rumours that the Royal Enfield will discontinue the solid white colour scheme.

    2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan: Tripper Navigation 

    Previous spy shots also revealed that the test mule of the updated Himalayan featured an additional pod on the right side of its existing digi-analog instrument cluster. This system will most certainly be the same Tripper Navigation system that made its debut on the new Meteor 350. 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.

    2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan: Other changes

    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. 

    Considering the added features, the updated Himalayan will most certainly cost a little more than its current price range of Rs 1.91-1.96 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). 

    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.
