Royal Enfield has launched a new version of its adventurer tourer motorcycle, the Himalayan. Christened as the Himalayan Sleet, this new Royal Enfield adventure tourer has been launched at an introductory price of INR 2,12,666 (on-road Chennai). In case you’re wondering, Sleet means ‘rain containing some ice, as when snow melts as it falls.’
The first 500 units of the new Himalayan Sleet will come equipped with the Explorer Kit, which will include an assortment of Royal Enfield genuine motorcycle accessories. The fully-kitted motorcycles will be available online for a limited period, starting from January 12-30. Buyers will have to register through the company’s website and sales will go live on January 30. The Himalayan Sleet will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Speaking about the new motorcycle, Royal Enfield President Rudratej Singh said, “The new Himalayan Sleet is inspired by the terrain of Royal Enfield’s spiritual home – the Himalayas, its craggy land, the gorges, edgy peaks all brought together in the colours of the sleet.”
