Royal Enfield is working on a new Himalayan 450! It will be launched with a more powerful engine, upgraded cycle parts and a new body design. The upcoming motorcycle was recently spied in India, whilst being tested, and going by the looks of it the bike looks almost production-ready.

Although this is not the first time that the upcoming Himalayan 450 has been spied on. Earlier, in the UK, a similar all-black camouflaged unit of the Himalayan 450 based on an all-new platform was spotted parked. It sported a high ground clearance, so naturally, the seat height was also higher. Along with that, adventure-spec wire-spoke wheels, USD fronts and single-mono shocks with longer travel could be clearly deciphered from the image.

As has been mentioned before, the upcoming Himalayan 450 will come with a bigger engine. It is purported to be a new 450 cc unit that will produce 40 hp and 45 Nm of torque. The transmission system might be a 6-speed gearbox derived from the Continental/Interceptor duo. Other design changes include a new half-fairing design, coupled with new tail light and indicators. The instrument cluster might be a borrowed unit or a new unit as well, we are yet to confirm.
