What brings Royal Enfield to the modern times is the new speedometer cluster on the Himalayan 452. The bike will be offered with a 4″ circular TFT colour display speedometer screen. This is not a touchscreen unit, but can be operated using the toggle buttons on the switch gear, which is also new by the way. This speedometer cluster will get smartphone connectivity with media / music controls and will also support a map screen layout which will allow riders to stay updated thanks to Google Maps being mirrored over here.

The motorcycle will come equipped with a LED headlamp similar to the Super Meteor 650 and a new set of LED rear turn indicators which integrate the tail lamp as well. The battery is a 12V 8 AH unit and the motorcycle also features a USB Type C charging socket.

This is possibly the most advanced Royal Enfield motorcycle ever built, with new tech & modern engineering. It remains to be seen how reliable the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 is once the product is launched, and the real test begins in the hands of the customers.
