Royal Enfield is going to launch its most anticipated bike, the Himalayan 450 at Motoverse on November 24, 2023. The upcoming bike which was recently unwrapped by the brand is the successor of the Himalayan 411 in India. The bike is expected to fall In the price range of somewhere between Rs 2.06 lakh – Rs 3.03 lakh. Here’s why.
The Himalayan 450 will likely fill a big gap
Since the Himalayan 450 will replace the current Himalayan 411 in India which will create a big space between the Scram 411 and the new Himalayan 450 (We all know it is going to be more expensive than the 411). The scram currently costs Rs 2.06 lakh and with the Himalayan 411 out of the equation, the next motorbike in the Royal Enfield family is the Interceptor 650, which comes with a price tag of Rs 3.03 lakh. So, the brand will fill this 1 lakh gap with the Himalayan 450, and expect the pricing to lean more towards the Interceptor.
Going with this assumption, the Himalayan 450 will carry a starting price tag of Rs 2.5 lakh – 2.6 lakh for the Kaza Brown paint scheme and other colour options and variants are expected to cost Rs 12,000 to Rs 20,000 more. The reason why It’s so obvious that the upcoming bike will carry a premium over the current 411 is because of its brand new platform, a more powerful Liquid-cooled engine, which the company uses in their bike for the first time. Also, consider the additions of new modern features such as a full-colour TFT and new riding modes.
These additions easily make the bike fall in the expected price tag and considering that, the on-road price of the Himalayan 450 will be around Rs 3 lakh for the base variant.
