Wonder what they mean by two models with a price difference of 20,000 INR ?
EFI and Carburetor ?

It could well be the faired and unfaired version IMO.

The side box and accessories etc, filled deluxe version ?

Guys, the source is given by Barcalad, please click on it and gain enlightenment

One is a full on adventure model and the other is regular street based.

Cheers

The source doesn't mention on the type of fuel feed. Our Mod Bblost saw a motorcycle which does the engine check procedure like an EFI and Man of Steel traced out the presence of a fuel tap in a picture which indicates the presence of a carburetor. So the question still remains - are there two versions wrt fuel feed ?

And on the spare fuel tank holder : won't it eventually rotate into horizontal position due to vibration and eject the spare tank ?

Even carb fed bikes do this full cluster animation/check on startup. Non-Fi Pulsars, RTRs even the new TB350 does the same. So unless there was a pump priming sound, we can assume that it is a carb!

As they went for a new engine, hopefully the vibrations will a lot lower than the current line of REs. Also, I believe there might be some sort of locking mechanism to keep the holder in place.

Finally a motorcycle to quench the thirst of adv tourers in our country! I am extremely tempted to buy one but I have no intention of becoming RE's personal guinea pig.

Oh well, maybe by mid 2017 then, when they would've ironed out all the chinks

That's what I thought too so I got my enfield c5 after 2 years, and I still feel like I was experimented upon, its far from as reliable mechanically as they say while reviewing a brand new bullet.

Looks like the launch of the Himalayan will happen early next year, unless he's referring to a different product.

On new products, he said the company will launch two new models, based on new engine platforms.
"One model would be launched early next year and the other one in 2017," Lal said.

New spy pics of full speedo console and radiator.

Rumoured: Tyres to be Ceat with optional Pirelli's. The counter balancer in engine that will reduce the vibrations.

The Himalayan’s instrument cluster has been spied up close as well, giving us a better look at the bike’s cockpit. The spy shots also confirm that the Himalayan will use an oil cooled engine.

Thanks for sharing these pics mate.

The RPM meter has a range of 0 to 10,000 RPM? Height of optimism or do we really have a hard revving RE on the cards? Oil cooled engine is a welcome addition too.

All said & done, the bike is growing on me and I just can't wait for the launch.

I think the red line starts at 6K and the meter is calibrated till 10K? Seems like M800 with a speedo going all the way till 250KMPH

Its not an oil cooled engine but an oil-is-cooled engine. Same happened with the Pulsar 200/220 when bajaj stuck an oil cooler and called it Oil Cooled Engine.

Aah! nice to the see the conventional fuel gauge instead of the digital one found on Tbird series. Looks like RE learnt a lesson or two from the rising complaints about the notoriously moody digital fuel gauge.

That's a welcome addition, but I hoped if RE could give us a liquid/water cooled engine . Nah! that's a long shot for RE or maybe they will consider it sometime in the future like Triumph did for their Bonneville series. Anyways the Himalayan seems to be poised for success looking at the eyeballs it has been grabbing since the spy shots appeared.
