Royal Enfield Reveals Pricing For The New Himalayan 452 Overseas

What is the cost of evolution? The completely-revamped adventurer is still attainable.

Royal Enfield made a bold move completely revamping their popular mid-sized adventurer for 2024. The all-new Himalayan shares virtually nothing with its predecessor, other than a subtle familial resemblance. It’s a completely different machine with a modern powerplant, chassis and new tech that’s poised to go head-to-head with top competitors in the class.

While the improvements have been quite dramatic, the big question has been “at what price?”. The Himalayan has made a name for itself as a retro-styled, accessible, off-road friendly machine, with an affordable price. And as a bike with more than a few foibles, that low price tag was always its saving grace.

So now that the bike has leapfrogged its predecessor, jumping forward several decades in design, will the price tag rise accordingly? Royal Enfield is yet to confirm the MSRP here in the US but pricing overseas was revealed at the brand’s biggest motorcycling festival, Motoverse 2023. The all-new Himalayan is now available in India, and will hit dealer floors across Europe starting March 2024. 

EU & UK Pricing

The fresh Himalayan is launched with a lineup comprising 3 distinct variants – Base, Pass and Summit. Looking at the starting price in the UK, we see the base model in Kaza Brown will come in at £5,750 while the Slate Himalayan Poppy Blue and Slate Himalayan Salt will arrive at £5,850. Meanwhile, Hanle Black is £6,050, and the top-variant tubeless wheel models in Kame White and Hanle Black are £6,250 and £6,300 respectively. Compared to the previous 2023 Himalayan 411 you could buy the Gravel Grey version in the UK for £4,949, while all other color options (Glacier Blue, Dune Brown, Sleet Black, Granite Black, Pine Green) were priced at £5,049.

That works out to a jump in the base price of £801 or an increase of 16.2%. If that same level of price increase makes it across the pond, the current starting $5,449 MSRP for the Himalayan (same for all colors) would increase to $6,332, or an increase of $883. Not too shabby, especially considering the new Himalayan would be roughly $1,000 less than one of its main competitors, the KTM 390 Adventure (MSRP $7,399).

While a nearly $900 price increase isn’t nothing, if that becomes reality it would still be a fairly affordable machine. If the new Himalayan arrives in the US with a price tag anywhere in the $6,500 range, it would continue to be one of the best bargains in the ADV segment while offering even more value than before.

With a new water-cooled, 4-valve, DOHC, 452cc ‘Sherpa’ single pumping out 39.5 horsepower and 24 ft-lbs of torque, combined with a new 6-speed transmission (previously 5 speed) and new twin-spar steel frame using the engine as a stressed member, along with wider wheels and beefier axles, stiffened swing arm, revised suspension (now made by Showa), and improved braking, it’s a much more stable and capable platform for both on and off-road excursions.

There’s loads more technology as well including the new 4″ round color-TFT Tripper Dash with phone integration, entertainment features, and on-screen map navigation. Fuel range has also been extended with a new 4.5-gallon tank and more fuel-efficient engine. Plus there’s new selectable ride modes that control combinations of two fuel maps and two ABS options. You get other amenities as well like full LED lighting all around, a USB-C powerport, 2-way adjustable seat, oversized bars, and more. You can read more about all the changes and our experiences riding the bike in the Himalayas in our Himalayan 452 Review.

While we still have to wait and see where the final price lands here in the states, it appears for now the Himalayan will remain a price-friendly option in the ADV Segment. We expect to get final pricing for North America sometime next year around the Summertime. Stay tuned and we’ll continue to keep you posted!

Nice to see the different Colorways, don’t really understand why some warrant the different prices? I see at least where the Hanlee Black has gold colored wheels. Otherwise??
