Added in: News

The BS-3 Royal Enfield Himalayan had its share of problems but the brand has claimed to have ironed out all the issues with the 2018 model. So, have all the issues really gone? We test rode the new 2018 Himalayan BS4 FI for a weekend, in a variety of conditions, including an afternoon of serious off-roading to find out how successful has Royal Enfield been in solving the problems from the first-generation motorcycles. Check out a detailed video review of the New 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan BS4 FI from Motoroids:

Just to give you a quick recap, the Royal Enfield Himalayan continues to use a 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine, although it now uses a Electronic Fuel Injection system instead of a carburettor. The performance numbers have not changed and the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan continues to draw maximum power of 24.5 bhp @ 6500 rpm and peak torque of 32 Nm @4000-4500 rpm from the 411cc single-cylinder engine.
