The local motorcycle community was understandably excited when Hardcore Brothers Custom Motorcycles Inc., official dealer of Royal Enfield, announced the launch of the 2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan 410. After all, it’s one of the first affordable Adventure Bikes to grace the local scene, and with a 65 Year Heritage to back it up.
Still equipped with the bulletproof (now Euro IV compliant) 411cc engine, the new Himalayan now sports new and inspiring colorways, the new Himalayan promises the same quality and reliability that enthusiasts have know for so long.
Some may scoff at the rather “smallish” engine displacement, but Royal Enfield says that’s more than enough for an adventure bike. Proper torque on a lightweight package delivers more performance than bigger sized engine counterparts. Plus, lower price is always an advantage for riders; they can spend more on safety equipment or even modifications.
Designed with the Rider in mind
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 410 is an adventure ready bike. The half-duplex-split cradle frame and long travel suspension works in tandem to provide a safe and stable through any rough terrain.
Ideal for the Filipino rider, with an 800mm seat height, ideal foot peg position and swept back handlebar, gives the rider a perfect upright riding position – either sitting or standing.
Long Journey design
The Himalayan has mounting points to strap your panniers at the back, or jerry cans in front. Worry-free ride is also made easier by the easy-to-read LCD dash. All information is available at your fingertips.
Big “17-21” wheels coupled with an upswept exhaust and 220mm of ground clearance assures you passage through any obstacles or terrain.
Vimal Sumbly, Head – APAC Business markets said, “The Philippines is one of the promising products, initiatives and engagements markets for Royal Enfield. We have sold over 400 Himalayans in the country and have received excellent feedback on this Adventure Tourer from Royal Enfield. I am delighted to also share that Himalayan has won the “Best Adventure Touring Motorcycle – 2018 by a known publication, and Motorcycle of the Year, 2017 Best Adventure / Dual Sport” By the Car Awards Group in Philippines.
“This apart, the product has been also garnering a lot of positive response from Adventure enthusiasts in the country. It is undoubtedly the fastest growing Adventure motorcycle for the brand in the APAC region”. Vimal continues. “With the ease of riding and handling, more focus on rider safety, the new Himalayan in the Euro IV specification is also equipped with a hazard switch that warns other riders in its proximity in case of a red flag and improved side-stand that will make parking on any kind of terrain easier. It’s ideal for on road and off-road riding, and practical for everyday riding as well as weekend Adventures.”
Jimmy D.L. Barinaga , President & CEO, Hardcore Brothers Custom Motorcycles Inc., shared “ We are excited to launch new colorways in Philippines for the new Himalayan Euro IV. In addition to the current colors – Snow White and Granite Black, Himalayan will have four new colors, two dual-tone colours, inspired from the varied terrains that our riders ride on during their journeys – Lake Blue and Rock Red, the camouflage Sleet Grey and Gravel Grey that has a satin finish to it. With these colorways and the accessible price point of PHP 299,000, the product will appeal to Adventure enthusiasts and Two Wheeler intenders alike.”
