The Royal Himalayan has created quite the buzz in the country and with good reason. Launched at Rs1.78 lakh, on-road Mumbai, it's the most affordableadventurer tourer money can buy in India. It features an all-new engine called the LS 410, which produces 24.5PS at 6,500rpm and32Nm between4,000-4,500rpm.Handling suspension duties are41mm front forks and alinkage-tyre rearmonoshock, both of which provide "excellent big-bump absorption," according to Shumi.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan gets a 21-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear, shod inCeat Gripp tyres, which offer good traction on dirt and tarmac. The front wheel gets a300mm disc which Rishaad thought wasset upideally for use on dirt roads, while the rear discs were easy to lock up for a bit of sideways action.
