300 Km ride on a new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has all adventure motorcyclists excited. But here are some real world ownership experiences which will help you understand this bike better.

BHPian sinharishi recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Did my first ever 300 kms trip on a 2-wheeler. Odometer has crossed 500 KMs, listing down some observations.

• The bike is top-heavy.

• 100 KMPH comes up at exact 5K rpm on the 6th gear.

• Bike is heavy. I took a short spin on a Duke Adv250, made me realise how heavy the himalayan is!

• Bad roads? Undulations? Love it how it rides, now wonder it is the USP of the bike.

• Headlights are pathetic.

• Brakes are good.

• The seat could have been more comfortable but it could be just me since this is my first 2-wheeler and I am still getting used to riding.

Today's ride: G.Noida-Ashram-Ballabgarh-Vrimdavan-YEW-G.Noida

Somewhere near Ballabgarh

Prem Mandir, Vrindavan
