Dear Bike India,
I am Shiv from Nagpur and I am a proud owner of a Royal Enfield Himalayan. But I have am not really impressed with the way the bike performs. I want to know how I can increase the performance, basically the acceleration without spending much money. I don’t want to modify the engine as it will mean spending a lot of money. Please suggest ways to get better acceleration at minimum cost.

Dear Santosh, the easiest way, and also the most inexpensive way, is to upgrade to a rear sprocket with more teeth on it. Putting a larger rear sprocket will give the bike better acceleration, however, it will reduce your top speed. There will be no modification as such required to carry out a sprocket change but make sure that you consult a professional technician before making the change as they will be able to tell you about the exact number of teeth required on the rear sprocket as per your needs.
