Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 to Launch With the New 40 HP Engine

The model was going to launch with the name Himalayan 450, which comes from the new 451.65 CC engine. 

The Himalayan 450 is one of the most anticipated bikes in the industry and has had much-leaked information. But the latest one is quite interesting and important. 

A homologation document from the government has revealed some interesting details about the upcoming Himalayan 450. The first information is that it is referred to as Himalayan 452 in the document in line with the Himalayan 411. The name suggests that it will get an all-new 451.65cc engine. 

The other big detail is that it will produce 29.44 KW or 40.02HP at 8,000 RPM.

The higher RPM at which it’ll produce peak power shows that this engine will rev higher than the current Himalayan. The current model produces 24.3HP at 6,500 RPM.

Moreover, the new Triumph Speed 400 makes 40 HP at 8,000 RPM. Although the motor of this Speed 400 has a very strong mid-range. But the new Himalayan is expected to offer better bottom-end torque, assisting its off-road performance. The Triumph engine is a DOHC unit, which is not confirmed. The Himalayan will likely keep their SOHC architecture for the valve train. 

Furthermore, according to the documents, the new Himalayan 452 will have 1,510 mm of wheelbase. In comparison, the current model is designed with 1,465 mm of wheelbase. The length has increased from 2,190 mm to 2,245 mm and width from 840mm to 852mm. It can go to 900 mm if it comes with the optional handguards installed in it. 

The upcoming Himalayan 452 will be much bigger and wider than its current model. Also, it will be fascinating to see how much changes there will be in the weight as the current model is 199kg. 

The new Himalayan 452 will launch sometime in November, and we expect prices to be revealed simultaneously.
