Since its successful debut in 2017, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has cemented itself in the ADV industry as a very capable lightweight model with distinct styling inspired by Royal Enfield’s immensely long history.
The Himalayan prides itself on its ability to keep itself low-profile from a visual and technical standpoint. A major selling point for the Himalayan is its simple components that can be tinkered with on the go; meaning this model has strong potential for repair when out in the bushes with limited tools.
Last year brought a few important quality of life upgrades that carry themselves over into 2022; the biggest change being switchable on/off ABS which can be a highly desired feature on a motorcycle that is designed for conquering both asphalt and dirt.
The most notable upgrade specific to 2022 would have to be the inclusion of Royal Enfield’s new Tripper Navigation system which allows for turn-by-turn navigation updates on a small navigation pod added to the bikes dash area. A new suede seat cover also allows for more pant-to-motorcycle grip to keep you secured in dicy off-road riding conditions.
