Friday bike

Every so often a bike comes along that isn't really my 'kind of thing', but I just like it and the Royal Enfield Himalayan is one of those.
It uses an OHC 411cc single cylinder engine producing a fairly mild 24.5 bhp, but rather than being a 'Bullet with bits bolted on', it appears to use a new frame with single shock rear suspension.

I really like the rather funky styling, and with 'adventure sports' being in fashion at the moment, I hope it sells well. We need more 'different' bikes on the market.


Type                                          Single cylinder, air-cooled, 4 stroke, SOHC
Displacement                           411cc
Bore x Stroke                           78 mm x 86 mm
Compression Ratio                   9.5:1
Maximum Power                      24.5 BHP (18.02 KW) @ 6500 RPM
Maximum Torque                     32 NM @ 4000 - 4500 RPM
Ignition system                         TCI, multi-curve
Clutch                                       Wet, multi-plate
Gearbox                                     5 speed constant mesh
Lubrication                               Wet sump
Fuel supply                               Carburettor with throttle position sensor
Engine start                               Electric

No more details at present although I would assume the it'll have fuel injection for Europe and other areas with tighter emissions laws.
