Hi­malayan Sleet

Ready for two-wheeled ad­ven­ture, if you are

Evo India - - NEWS -

ROYAL EN­FIELD, HAS in­tro­duced the Hi­malayan Sleet. The ad­ven­ture tourer fea­tures a new white cam­ou­flage paint scheme which finds its roots in the Hi­malayas. The first 500 cus­tomers get an Ex­plorer kit pre-fit­ted on the mo­tor­cy­cle at an in­tro­duc­tory price of `2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai). The kit in­cludes two 26-litre wa­ter re­sis­tant alu­minium pan­niers, pan­nier mount­ing rails, alu­minium han­dle­bar with cross brace and an en­gine bash guard with pow­der coated fin­ish.

There are no me­chan­i­cal up­dates to the mo­tor­cy­cle. The newly launched Hi­malayan Sleet is essen­tially the same bike fea­tur­ing a 411cc sin­gle-cylin­der, air-cooled fuel-in­jected mo­tor with an oil cooler, which pumps out 24.5bhp of max­i­mum power and 32Nm of peak torque. The kit is pre­sum­ably part of the many cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions that had been promised at the bike's launch ahead of the last Auto Expo in 2016.
