Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 CC Bike Confirmed
Himalayan 650 is one of the most rumored motorcycles in the automotive industry. Ever since the success of the 650 Twins, people have been talking about the more powerful Himalayan. Earlier 650 Himalayan project was canceled but now it has been given green signal. The new motorcycle is expected to be launched in the last quarter of 2024.
how much will it cost
According to media reports, the company has been working on the Himalayan 650 for about 18 months. Earlier, Royal Enfield thought that it would be difficult to use such a heavy engine on an adventure motorcycle. So, he started working on other projects. However, when he saw that there was a lot of demand for the motorcycle, he gave the go-ahead to the Himalayan 650 project. The ex-showroom price of the motorcycle could be around Rs 4 lakh and the company could launch it under a different name.
how will be the new bike
According to reports, bike lovers were expecting that the Himalayan 650 bike would be an adventure vehicle like the Himalayan 411, but it is not. According to the report, it will be a soft-roader and will be launched in two variants. There will be an alloy wheel variant and a spoke wheel variant. The alloy wheels will be retained as the sports tourer, while the spoke wheels will be retained as the adventure tourer.
Unlike the 21-inch wheel used on the Himalayan 411, the Himalayan 650 will use a 19-inch front wheel. While the rear wheels will be 17-inch. The motorcycle is expected to use dual-purpose tyres. Since it is a tourer bike, it will get more ground clearance and seat height will also be higher. The design of the new motorcycle will be similar to the Himalayan 411.

It is natural that no information has been revealed about the launch of this bike but the information about the timeline of the launch of the bike has definitely come to the fore. The company can launch the Himalayan 650 in the last quarter of 2024. That means the wait for Powerful Himalayan is still long.
According to media reports, the company has been busy preparing the project for 18 months. In the initial phase, the company felt that it would be difficult to fit such a heavy engine in an adventure bike. Now looking at the demand of the bike, the company has approved Himalayan 822.
Enfield's two bikes in the 650cc segment
For the people who are fond of speed, Royal Enfield has launched two great bikes in the Indian market, which are of 650 cc. Among these, the price of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 ranges from Rs 2.81 lakh to Rs 3.03 lakh. This 648 cc bike generates power of 47.65 PS. The company claims that its mileage is up to 25.35 kmpl. On the other hand, you can buy Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 for Rs 2.98 lakh to Rs 3.20 lakh. Its engine of 648 cc can generate power up to 47.65 PS.
New Himalayan coming soon
Royal Enfield Electric Bike is also working on a more capable version of the Himalayan. Apparently, it will be positioned above the existing Himalayan 450. It could come with 450 cc engine and is currently under development. Royal Enfield is adding one more Himalayan to the line-up as some feel that the current Himalayan feels a bit weak due to its heavy weight. So, the Chennai based manufacturer could increase the power output by increasing the engine capacity. We expect the new Hardcore Himalayan to be launched by the end of 2022.
