Royal Enfield just launched the Classic Signals 350, which was its first submission in our country to feature ABS. The standard model of the Himalayan ABS has been valued at Rs 1,78,833, while the Himalayan Sleet ABS conveys at exceptional of Rs 1,836 and will trade for Rs 1,80,669 (all prices mentioned are ex-showroom, Mumbai). The addition of ABS has seen prices increase by Rs 11,000, which is in line with what we estimated when we first broke the news that the Himalayan ABS would launch soon after the Classic Signals 350. Both motorcycles are armed with a dual-channel ABS unit, which is likely to be a non-switchable one (similar to the export model).
The on-road price for Royal Enfield’s voyage touring motorcycle sees a major jump as the new IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India) directive makes it mandatory for all new two-wheelers to be traded with a five-year third party insurance policy. The one-year inclusive insurance and the obligatory five-year third party insurance policy for the Himalayan will cost the consumer almost Rs 17,400. The on-road, Mumbai price for the Himalayan ABS outlooks at Rs 2,18,693 and the Himalayan Sleet ABS will hit your wallet by Rs 2,20,771. Apart from the addition of ABS, no mechanical or cosmetic modernizes have been made on the motorcycle.
Royal Enfield has broadcast that they will be kitting its whole range with dual-channel ABS by end of the year, which is a constructive step by the firm given the safety welfares. Sales for the Royal Enfield Himalayan have increased ever since the BS-IV-compliant variant was launched in late 2017.
It will be fascinating to see whether the jump in price, owing to the inclusion of ABS and the new insurance policy, will disturb sales of the adventure tourer in the near future or not.
