Has anyone ridden this yet? A friend told me that RE is mulling at a 550cc Himalayan of some sorts?

Fuel return line is from the fuel rail. Some EFI systems are returnless.
That is engine oil temperature sensor.

Odd place for an oil temp sensor? Are not those usually found in the sump or near the oil filter?

Yup, the 500 FI has the temperature sensor at the same location.

If one unscrews the sensor, does oil flow out?

Sounds trivial, but yes, oil will flow out.

The FI version of the RE Himalayan is already in the showrooms.

Saw this Himalayan FI at Royal Enfield Paud Road showroom Pune last evening.

Sadly I was rushing for some personal work, so couldn't ask the SA much about the upgrades. He quoted 1.93 Lakhs OTR Pune price for the new Himalayan.

Test ride bike is available with the Paud Road dealer.

Hope the quality issues are sorted out with this Himalayan, since they took a long time to launch the BS4 model.

All was well, until he started reviewing it, I did not have the patience even to watch it till the end.
Reviewing a product and making a YouTube video about it is the biggest hobby these days.

Sadly the update does not include ABS. Why can RE not provide an option at cost?

My BS 4 Himalayan was delivered a couple of days ago. I booked it in Mysore sometime in March in the hope that the waiting period would be shorter compared to Bangalore. But I ended up waiting for 6 months! I went on ride to Kaveri Nisargadhama from Mysore yesterday. Here are my first impressions:

- The upright seating position gives the rider an excellent view of the road. The ergonomics are spot on.
- Since the bike is in the run-in period, I could nt take her beyond 60kph( 3k ). The acceleration is quite linear.
- The brakes have bite and are confidence inspiring.
- The suspension is very good. One can coast over bad roads.
- My only grouse is the amount of effort required to switch to 2nd gear from 1st. It is not smooth. The other shifts are OK.

I have been browsing around to get a feed back on the BS IV Himalayan but there seems to be no one updating that.
I saw one of them run a few days ago on the Ajmer Jaipur Highway and it ran ahead of the BSIV Classic 500 that I had (with pillion) and we were pushing past 105- and yet the H seemed to be easy and ahead always>
Sambhar- Naraina- Dudu to Nirman Nagar - the bike seemed amazing.
He was with me from Sambhar lake and the miserable stretch till we finally turned left at Dudu. The bad road capability was always something I was in amazed about, and that was reaffirmed- on that stretch/
However, average (for one), and woes- if any, I could not discuss. Horror stories from the earlier BS3, and ranges from 15-22 Km/L abound.... and worry me.
Hope someone here has a few words from experience to add.
Thanks.
