EVERYTHING YOU NEED. NOTHING YOU DON'T.
Quality suspension lets you keep the bike on the line you’ve chosen over the roughest terrain and that’s exactly what you get from the inverted Showa cartridge fork.
The steel twin-spar frame is stronger, stiffer and narrower between the legs for improved comfort while riding in a standing position. Better handling, better stability and better balance.
Ride-by-wire with four riding modes so you can tune the response to suit the terrain and your mood, while in the background the bike delivers smooth fuelling and better fuel economy.
Engines and water don’t mix. But adventure and river crossings go hand-in-hand so we developed the Himalayan with a high up air intake under the tank to keep you rolling when the rivers are running high.
Nobody wants to stop riding because they’re saddle sore. So the new Himalayan features an adjustable two-piece seat to keep both rider and pillion comfortable, along with an optional low seat to keep your feet on the ground at any altitude.
Like the high-altitude Sherpa that inspired it, this engine has the torque to pull you out of a sandy hollow at 5,000 meters above sea level while being able to enjoy the 5 day trip back home afterward
