Royal Enfield claims the Himalayan is the “only motorcycle you will ever need.” That’s probably stretching the truth a bit, but this Indian-manufactured single-cylinder adventure bike has a lot going for it. First and foremost, MSRP: $4,499. That’s a sweet deal, especially for a brand-new machine whose engine displaces more than the usual 250cc to 300cc found on many entry-level dual-purpose machines at this price—even if it is air- not liquid-cooled. Despite a displacement advantage on most of its competition, the Himalayan is not a fast motorcycle; company literature claims the little thumper makes less than 25 hp. And ready to ride, the bike weighs as much as a 600cc supersport. Combine the two and acceleration should probably be measured in minutes, not seconds.
