Royal Enfield Himalayan Review

Royal Enfiladed finally delivered! Many riders were waiting for an affordable Adventure Touring Bike for long. Using street bikes for touring off the tarmac was always a compromise. Then came the big ADV bikes in the shape of Triumph Tigers. They were huge, heavy and most importantly costly for most buyers. Perfect plot for something like Himalayan. I have Test ridden the bike and all the details are in the accompanying Video.
