Royal Enfield Himalayan Gets ABS and New Color for North America

The Himalayan gets new updates for USA and Canada.

Published on 03.20.2019

Royal Enfield has announced new updates for the Himalayan in North America which will now come standard with ABS and a new limited-edition color called ‘Sleet’. The updates were launched last year in India and other international markets and are now seeing their debut in the US and Canada.

No other details have been announced regarding new accessories/packages coming to America for 2019, but we do know that the ABS update is a dual channel ABS (separate sensors for each wheel) which is always on.

At the heart of the Himalayan is the same 411cc EFI engine in last year’s model. The SOHC engine pumps out 24.5 BHP @ 6500 RPM and 26 ft-lbs of max torque. The Himalayan also sports a 21″/17″ wire-spoked wheel set and 7.9 inches of travel up front and 7.1 inches in the back. Ground clearance is generous at 9 inches all while maintaining a very manageable seat height of 31.5 inches (29.9″ with the low seat).

Snow and Granite colors will continue to be available in 2019, while the new camouflage Sleet color, inspired by the snow-peaked mountains the bike is named after, will have limited availability.

According to Royal Enfield, dealers across the US and Canada will have the new 2019 Himalayan available this April in showrooms. Pricing for the 2019 Himalayan with ABS is MSRP: $4,749. All models in Royal Enfield’s current 2019 lineup now have standard ABS.

Shame that it’s a 411cc instead of a 399cc , don’t want to pay 200$ more dollars pers years for registration at our Dmv ( Saaq in Qc. ) . I will wait for an eventually new 399cc ninja based Versys X . 200 $ x 5 years will pays by itself for the higher price of a Kawasaki . Bad market evaluation from Royal Enfield America .

I guess it depends where you live in the world. It must have been difficult for Royal Enfield to take motorcycle laws and regulations from different counties into consideration in order to capture a bigger market share. Here in the Philippines we wanted the Himalayan to be over 400cc on order to use it on expressways that are restricted to motors under 400cc
