Royal Enfield is gearing up to launch the new 2021 updated Himalayan in the Indian market. The new Royal Enfield Himalayan is expected to carry forward the same adventure styling but will be updated with new colours, a new Tripper navigation system and mild changes to the front body frame which is now more ergonomic for taller riders. The prices on the new Himalayan is also expected to rise with the updates, but it is still likely to be one of the most affordable in the segment.
For 2020, the biggest update is expected to be the Tripper Navigation system that made its debut on the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. The Google-powered Tripper navigation system provides turn-by-turn navigation along with key details such as remaining distance to destination time etc. The Tripper navigation is a dedicated pod with a rounded colour LCD display that doubles up as a clock when the system is not in use. Royal Enfield is expected to integrate the new pod style navigation system with the existing instruments cluster.
Another update on the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will be the colour of the motorcycle. Sources report that the new Himalayan will come with a new shade of Pine Green. The motorcycle is also likely to come with a White and Silver dual-tone colour option. It is also being said that the Solid White shade is likely to be discontinued in the future.
The motorcycle comes with a front frame on the sides of the fuel which are very helpful while exploring uncharted terrain. The frame not only helps protect from minor scuffs on the trail but also helps mount small luggage bags to carry tools and also specialised jerry cans to carry extra fuel and water. But on the current motorcycle, the frame is extended almost till the knee recesses on the tank, the updated motorcycle is expected to come with a redesigned frame that will address the issue of the knee coming into contact with the frame especially for taller riders.
