Mine has only misted up in direct sun , as did my XT660Z and HD , even then only very slightly . If it does it more I'll go for the vent holes solution , maybe with a rubber grommet to stop rain water getting in easily .

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

I've got to the point I enjoy the 90+mpg of a small bike and the extra challenges it brings finding somewhere to put luggage ! 8-) Did the 2500 miles to Spain and back first on a 200 then upgraded ( :lol: ) to a 125 Chinese bike for the next trip , all went well but did need to drop to 2nd going ove...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Finally got a test ride yesterday on the Himalayan at Bolton Motorcycles. Impressions? Well, I came back feeling that this was a really decent bike.
