Himalayan 450 mirrors, rider ergos & size comparison with V-Strom 650

Royal Enfield has made the mirrors far more functional and properly adjustable than those of the Himalayan 411.

BHPian shyamg28 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Few observations from me

Mirrors

In general, I feel round mirrors, while they look good, aren't that functional.

But the 450 mirrors actually work well. They also have some sort of anti-reflection thing going on which really helps at night.

On my Himalayan 411, this was the first thing I changed, about 100kms into the ownership.

What I feel is the main difference between them, is how far out the mirrors are on the 450.

Maybe I'm reading into it a bit more than I should, but I feel the 450 ones being a little further out, actually makes it far more functional, in addition to it being properly adjustable now.
