Royal Enfield has launched the BS 6 version of its popular offering - the Royal Enfield Himalayan. This is the first major update for the popular off-road motorcycle from Royal Enfield. The new Himalayan is available at a starting price of 1.87 lakh (ex-showroom).

Besides the change in engine, the company has added a Switchable ABS feature to the new Himalayan. Switching the ABS off allows the rear wheel to lock, and lets the rider drift when riding off-road. The new Himalayan is also equipped with a hazard switch that warns other riders in its proximity in case of a red flag. In addition to this, the enhanced brake mechanism ensures a smoother riding experience with lesser stopping distance. The new motorcycle will also come with an improved side-stand that will make parking on any kind of terrains easier.
