1. Design: The Himalayan 450 ADV features a transparent visor on top of an LED headlight. The side profiles were covered during testing, but it retains the split seat setup, rear luggage rack, and similar bodywork as seen on previous test bikes. It offers an upright riding posture with a tall handlebar.

2. Engine: The bike is expected to be powered by a 450cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine paired with a six-speed gearbox. The output figures are estimated to be around 40 horsepower (bhp) and 45 Newton meters (Nm) of torque. The KTM 390 Adventure has a 373cc engine with 42.9 bhp and 37 Nm of torque.

3. Features: The Himalayan 450 ADV will likely be equipped with LED lighting. The instrument console will be fully digital and centrally mounted, displaying essential information such as the speedometer, odometer, trip meter, and fuel level.


4. Safety and technology: Royal Enfield plans to offer dual-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) and a slipper clutch with the Himalayan 450 ADV.

5. Suspension and brakes: The bike is expected to feature upside-down (USD) front forks and a mono-shock rear suspension setup. Braking hardware will likely include a single front and rear disc brake.

6. Wheels and tires: The Himalayan 450 ADV could have 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels fitted with dual-purpose, tube-type tires.


7. Pricing and availability: An official announcement from Royal Enfield is expected around September, and the bike is inching closer to the production stage. The anticipated price for the Himalayan 450 ADV is around Rs. 2.70 lakh (ex-showroom), placing it in the same price range as the KTM 390 Adventure X and the BMW G 310 GS.

Royal Enfield could officially announce the Himalayan 450 around September this year. This suggests that the development of the bike is progressing, and it is nearing its production stage. 

However, it’s important to note this information is based on spy shots, and it’s always best to wait for an official announcement from Royal Enfield for accurate and confirmed details about the launch and production of the Himalayan 450.
