Royal Enfield Himalayan – Price, impressions, data sheet.
Simple, light, with a low and economical saddle. An all-round motorcycle without great pretensions. Bike suitable for beginners or for those who want to go down in engine capacity and weight. It does its thing at a very affordable price.
Motorcycle born for those who just want to drive without too many problems, narrow, low and contained in weight. The riding position is comfortable and intuitive, the feet touch without problems. The wide handlebar helps balance the weights well. The engine is lively enough, don't ask it to shoot from "zero to a hundred", the Himalayan is at ease both in the city and on country roads where its engine can grumble without haste. Driving must be gentle, it is a "contemplative" motorcycle, for leisure. In the city it is easy to handle and brilliant in traffic. On the motorway, the windshield protects quite well and the position in the saddle is comfortable, so long stretches are bearable, even if after 120 km/h you feel vibrations which can be annoying. Good stability. In light off the suspension responses are appreciable.
