The Himalayan 452 will get a 451.65 cc liquid-cooled motor that makes 39.45 bhp at 8,000 rpm. The current Himalayan makes peak power of 24 bhp at 6,500 rpm, indicating that the next-generation Himalayan will have a higher revving engine. Torque output figures have not been revealed though they could be in the region of 40-45 Nm. The leaked documents also report a gross weight of 394 kg.

The new bike is likely to feature a fully digital TFT instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity. The bike is likely to get a six-speed transmission, possibly with a slip and assist clutch, compared to the current Himalayan’s five-speed unit.

The motorcycle will be built on an all-new chassis with the engine being a stressed member. The rear subframe is a bolt-on unit. The motorcycle also features full LED lighting as well as premium components such as an upside-down fork setup at the front and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. Like most ADVs, it is likely to have a 21-inch wheel up front and a 19-inch wheel at the rear. Expect RE to give options between spoked and alloy wheels. 

We expect prices of the ADV to be between at Rs. 2.8 lakh to Rs. 3 lakh (ex-showroom).
