For 2020, Royal Enfield introduced new dual-tone colour options on the Himalayan including Lake Blue, Rock Red, and Gravel Gray, in addition to Sleet Grey and Granite Black. The bike also comes with hazard lights as well as a redesigned side standard that is less prone to being scraped around a corner. The company had previously said that it has also worked on reducing the braking distance on the motorcycle, having taken customer feedback into consideration. Lastly, the instrument console gets a white backlight replacing the orange hue on the bike.
