ROYAL ENFIELD has released the full details on their 2021 updates to the Himalayan, and we’ve got all the specs you need to know. 

The most substantial additions to the new 2021 model year range are the switchable ABS for the rear wheel, which is perfect for off-roading, and the new Tripper navigation, first seen on the Meteor 350.

Both of these additions are perfect for the adventurers among us, the ABS in particular being a feature regularly requested by Himalayan fans who enjoy a bit of green-lane action. The Tripper system is non-intrusive guidance seamlessly integrated with the gauges in the instrument cluster, giving basic directional navigation reminders as you ride. 

Outside of this, the Himalayan has seen a few cosmetic tweaks, namely with a comfier seat, reduction of size for the front tank-guard, and rear luggage optimisations. It's still within the A2 licence limit, so budding adventurers can step on to this from 19 with their A2 licence in hand.
