After months of anticipation, Royal Enfield (RE) has officially revealed its highly awaited adventure motorcycle, the Himalayan 452. This marks a significant update to the iconic Himalayan 411, originally launched in 2016. According to a report by HT Auto, the formal launch of this thrilling motorcycle is expected in November of this year.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 brings forth a series of subtle yet impactful changes when compared to its predecessor. The new Himalayan boasts a more streamlined appearance, featuring a sleeker yet larger fuel tank, redesigned fenders, and a comfortable split-seat configuration. The ‘Himalayan’ branding takes a prominent position on the front mudguard, while Himalayan graphics adorn the fuel tank, side panel, and rear fender.
