Powering the Himalayan 450 is a new Sherpa 450 engine. It is a 452 cc, single-cylinder unit that is liquid-cooled. This is the first time that Royal Enfield has made a liquid-cooled engine. It puts out 40 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 40 Nm at 5,500 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch.
The new Himalayan is 55 mm longer and 12 mm wider, but 54 mm shorter than its predecessor. The wheelbase has grown as well at 1,510 mm. Because of this, the road presence of the new Himalayan has increased. Royal Enfield has moved the fuel tank down for better weight distribution and the air box has been moved upwards, which has helped increase the motorcycle's water wading capacity. The manufacturer is also offering adjustable seat heights. The stock seat height is 825 mm and it can be increased to 845 mm. There will also be a seat with lower seat height which will be offered as an accessory.
