The Himalayan is an entry level dual-purpose adventure bike with an all-new engine, 411 cc, referred to as the long-stroke "LS410". Power is stransferred to the rear wheel via a 5-speed constant mesh transmission and 0-ring 525 chain. Braking is handled by front and rear disc brakes. The fuel tank capacity of the Royal Enfield Himalayan is 4 gallons with 0.1 gallon in reserve. Charging output is 220 watts max supporting a 12V 8AH lead acid battery. Consequently, the stock battery failed early for many Himalayan owners who were either offered a similar-to-stock replacement or upgraded to a more modern lithium batter option such as the Antigravity ATZ-10.

How far can the Royal Enfield travel once the trip meter starts the Trip F mode? Approximately 100 kilometers of highway/roadway travel.

The first Royal Enfield Himalayan to reach North America's Prudhoe Bay and Deadhorse, Alaska was ridden by Justin Matley, aka Karmakaze Moto, in August of 2019, one year after Matley purchased his Himalayan in Seattle Washington and rode it from the dealership to Anchorage, Alaska where he lived. That motorcycle adventure along with the Prudhoe Bay ride was covered extensively on the Karmakaze Moto YouTube channel, youtube.com/c/karmakazemoto.

As one of the first owners of a Royal Enfield Himalayan in the US⁠—he had pre-ordered when it was announced the dual sport adventure motorcycle would be available in North America⁠—many later Himalayan owners attributed their adoption of the Himalayan to Karmakaze Moto's adventures. The overall consensus was that Matley proved the Himalayan could withstand thousands of miles of continuous travel on North America's long, fast highways, and that the Himalayan was a fun, competent and durable motorcycle despite the low $4,500 price tag.
