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.
