Royal Enfield has won its second consecutive IMOTY award thanks in part to the new second-generation adv tourer.
With the new Royal Enfield Himalayan has won the Indian Motorcycle of the Year 2024 title.
The most prestigious Indian motorcycle prize went to the brand-new Royal Enfield Himalayan, surpassing the Triumph Scrambler 400X, which came in second, and the KTM 390 Duke, which came in second.
Along with Indian Car of the Year, the most esteemed accolade granted to a motorcycle is Indian Motorcycle of the Year. The jury is made up of journalists who test-drive motorcycles all year long for magazines and other media outlets. The prestigious 14-member panel includes Rahul Ghosh, Associate Editor of Auto Today, and Dipayan Dutta, Assistant Editor. Each jury member has 25 points to give out, which must be split among five finalists; the most points that one competitor may receive is 10.
The Himalayan outperformed the Harley-Davidson X440, Hero Karizma XMR, Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650, TVS Apache RTR 310, Triumph Scrambler 400X, and KTM 390 Duke.
The brand-new, code-named Sherpa 450, 451cc liquid-cooled motor—RE’s first—powers the 2023 Royal Enfield Himalayan. This generates 40.02 horsepower and 40 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm and 5,500 rpm, respectively. A 6-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch is attached to this engine. The entire thing is more compact than in the previous Himalayan since the engine is canted forward and the airbox is positioned over the engine.
From Rs 2.69 Lakh (ex-showroom, introductory) to Rs 2.84 lakh (ex-showroom, introductory), prices for the Himalayan vary. To read the complete Himalayan review, click this link.
