Bikerbox hints PH arrival of new Himalayan 450

The Royal Enfield Himalayan motorcycle has been one of India’s top-selling models since its inception in 2016. After a few minor updates, it has recently received a major overhaul in its engine and design, and this new Himalayan is highly anticipated by its solid fanbase across the globe.

The next question from its Pinoy fans: “When will it arrive in the PH?” Bikerbox says it could be in the country by Q2 of 2024.

The new Himalayan 450 received a major overhaul from top to bottom. It has received a new engine which Royal Enfield engineers dubbed as the “Sherpa” – like the high-altitude sherpas that inspired it.

The new engine is now liquid-cooled and produces a claimed 41 Ps of power and 40 Nm of torque. The new Himalayan 450 also boasts a new Tripper dash – a fully digital screen with Bluetooth connectivity. Also, the front suspension now enjoys Showa USD forks, ride-by-wire, 2-riding modes, and a much sleeker overall design.

PH price is to be advised.
