The accessory line of the new Himalayan 450 has been broadly divided into two categories by Royal Enfield: Adventure and Rally.
Royal Enfield recently unveiled the new Himalayan 450 with all its glory. The latest version of the adventure tourer will be available in India from November 7. Similar to its predecessor, Enfield will offer a large selection of accessories for the new Himalayan, all of which will be sold under its vertical genuine motorcycle accessories category.
The accessory selection of the new Himalayan 450 has been divided by the Chennai-based bike manufacturer primarily into two categories: Adventure and Rally. The Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Rally Standard and its accessories are the main subject of this news.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Rally Accessories
The Himalayan 450 Rally Edition, as its name suggests, is designed to improve the off-road capabilities of the motorcycle. To that end, Royal Enfield offers accessories including the Rally handlebar, Rallye back panel and single-piece Rally seat. The height of the Rally seat has been fixed at 855mm. Additionally, an aero exhaust is available for the European market, although it is not currently available in India.
Additionally, the same accessories as the Adventure and Rally streams can be chosen, such as an aluminum radiator cover, an engine sump guard and a headlamp grille.
The prices of these accessories have not been disclosed by Royal Enfield yet, although they are expected to be revealed after the formal release of the bike. However, deliveries are probably scheduled to begin in January 2024. The prices of these new items should be slightly higher than their outgoing units.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 specs
The all-new Sherpa 450 series engine is the highlight of the new Himalayan. This all-new 452cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor produces 40 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm and 40 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. This motor uses a wet plate slip and assist clutch to connect to the 6-speed gearbox. The Himalayan 450 will have two riding modes: Eco and Performance.
A double-sided swingarm and a twin spar tubular steel frame are among the hardware options. The suspension system is supplied by Showa and consists of a rear monoshock and 43 mm upside-down front forks. Dual-channel ABS helps with braking performance thanks to the 320mm front and 270mm rear disc brakes. For off-roading, the rear ABS switch is particularly beneficial.
