Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 discontinued; replaced by new 450


Those who wish to go for the more old school and affordable version can still buy the Scram 411.

The new Royal Enfield Himalayan will make its global debut at EICMA 2023 on 7 November. However, the official India price is likely to be revealed at Royal Enfield’s annual Motoverse motorcycle festival (earlier called Rider Mania) in Goa on 24-26 November. 

When the new age Himalayan goes on sale, it will replace the existing Himalayan 411 that has been out since 2016. As the full specifications have now been revealed, you will be aware that the new bike is a world apart from the old motorcycle, both in terms of power and technology. 

Prices are not yet out, but it is safe to assume that the new Himalayan will cost a good deal more than the existing Himalayan that is priced between Rs 2.15 and Rs 2.3 lakh ex-showroom. 

For those who may want to stick with the more cost effective model – or those who prefer the old school air/oil-cooled engine – there will still be the choice of the Scram 411 that will continue to be on sale. In fact, we reported earlier this year that Royal Enfield was working on a larger Scram 440 with a reworked air-cooled engine, so the Scram in this old-school form will be around for the long term. 

Our detailed full review of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan will be out on the 10th of November.
