Ready for two-wheeled adventure, if you are
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.
