Recently spy shots of the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan surfaced on the internet revealing a number of updates. Now, images of the scale model of the mid-cycle facelift have also made their way revealing the actual cosmetic updates given to the almost off-roader. While we already knew important bits from the spy shots, the clay model has revealed some more key details. We also expect it to be named the Royal Enfield Scram once it is launched in the Indian market.
2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan | What’s New?
Although we cannot exactly say what’s official just by looking at the scale model, what we know is that the overall design remains similar with minor changes to select body panels. As we can see from the clay model, the front windscreen has been taken off and the front rack is also missing. It has been replaced by tank shrouds bearing the number “411”. It also features fork gaiters to keep the dust and mud away from squeaking into the front suspension rods.
Another major update on the bike is the instrument console which is now a very simple-looking setup with the multi-clock layout seen on the existing bike. Now that we cannot clearly see the cluster on the clay model of the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan, we can expect a Meteor-inspired layout with a tripper navigation system seen on most of the RE bikes updated in recent times!
On the rear, we have a traditional pillion grab rail instead of the grab rail cum luggage rack fitting on the existing unit.
2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan | Launch Timeline & Rivals
So we don’t have anything official as of now regarding the launch. What we expect is that we can get the off-roader by the end of this year in the market. About the price, expect it to be a little lower than the existing variant. Once here, it will compete against the KTM Adventure 250 and the BMW G 310 GS.
