    The old Himalayan was far from perfect, but it was a charming machine. The new version is vastly more capable, but it has lost some of that endearing quirkiness in the process. This is now a more polished, modern machine that is undoubtedly better than the one it replaces but at the cost of some character. This is the natural course of progression in the motorcycling world and you’ll see a similar story if you trace back the history of bikes like the BMW GS and Ducati Monster.

    Nevertheless, while the new Himalayan may turn off some customers who liked what the old bike had to offer, it will undoubtedly attract a much bigger crowd who are drawn in by what the bike can do. This is just the sort of bike that ADV enthusiasts in India have been waiting for and it proves to be the most well-rounded bike in its category.
