After teasing the motorcycle for a couple of days now, Royal Enfield has finally launched a new version of its adventure touring model Himalayan, at an introductory price of Rs 2,12,666 (on-road Chennai). The first 500 units of the new product, Himalayan Sleet will come pre-fitted with Explorer Kit, an assortment of Royal Enfield genuine motorcycle accessories, the company said in a statement.
These fully-kitted motorcycles will be exclusively available online for a limited period from January 12-30, it added. Interested buyers will have to register through the company's website and sales will go live on January 30 on a first-come-first-serve basis, Royal Enfield said.Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet.

Genuine Motorcycle Accessories that will form part of the Himalayan Sleet Explorer Kit are two 26-litres water resistant aluminium panniers, off-road style aluminium handlebar with cross brace for added strength, handlebar end weights for additional protection, and a powder-coated finish engine guard.
The bike is powered by 411cc air-cooled engine that delivers 24.5 bhp and 32 Nm of torque and comes with a 5-speed transmission. It also comes with a counter-balancer which has effectively removed almost all the vibrations that you would normally associate with an Enfield.
"The new Himalayan Sleet is inspired by the terrain of Royal Enfield's spiritual home - the Himalayas, its craggy land, the gorges, edgy peaks all brought together in the colours of the sleet," Royal Enfield President Rudratej Singh said.
