Royal Enfield has just launched a limited edition version of the Himalayan. It’s called the Himalayan Sleet and features a unique Camo paint scheme, and is fitted with many useful accessories. The Himalayan Sleet is priced at Rs. 2.12 lakhs but will only be available to buy online, at Royal Enfield’s website.
Only 500 units of the Himalayan Sleet will be built, making it a limited edition model. If you are interested one, you can register on Royal Enfield’s website starting tomorrow, and pay a booking amount of Rs. 5,000 for the bike. Official sale will begin on the 30th of January, when the company will announce the first 500 people who have registered for the Himalayan Sleet, making them eligible to pay the remaining amount and ride home the bike.
Coming to the changes on the motorcycle, it gets the camo paint job, and is fitted with the Explorer accessory kit. The kit consists of aluminium panniers, pannier mounting rails, aluminium handlebar with cross-brace and powder-coated engine guard. The bike will continue to use the same mechanicals as the BS4 Himalayan. ABS will also not be offered, even as an option.
The Himalayan Sleet will be powered by a 411 cc, four stroke single cylinder engine with air and oil cooling. This engine features an overhead camshaft and two valves. The fuel injected engine puts out 24.5 Bhp of peak power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,500 rpm. A five speed manual transmission is standard. The bike uses a double cradle duplex frame, high travel front and rear suspension.
The telescopic front forks have a travel of 200 mm and the rear monoshock has a travel of 180 mm. The bike gets a fuel tank of 15 liters, which gives it a range of about 300-400 Kms considering that it delivers about 30 Kmpl of fuel efficiency on an average. Speaking about the launch of the Himalayan Sleet in India, President of Royal Enfield, Mr. Rudratej Singh had this to say,
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.”
