Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Just been out on the bike with the Powertronic fitted and kind of working okay. It's still running a bit rich, even after running the configuration programme. You can fine tune but I've not got my head around that yet. Subjectively it seems to give more zip and surge in the midrange. Objectively, ri...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

It's a shame you have to make it personal Sweeney Todd but if that's your take on it, fair enough. Grown men happy with the bike they've purchased. Can't see anything wrong with that. Why experiment with performance enhancing products? Because there are some out there claiming amazing things about t...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

.......I was over at the development centre the other day and I have a fair idea as to what's coming next. It may or may not suit you down to the ground. I'm thinking it might, but it's a good way off yet. Anynews/rumours of an "Adventurised" 650 ? Unfortunately I'm not at liberty to say, but needl...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I'm getting confused here. Surely, by putting the Interceptor engine in a Himalayan, you'd be making a bigger, heavier more complex twin-cylinder motorcycle which is moving away from the ethos of what the Himalayan was all about: a simple, relatively light, low-powered single that'll go anywhere. N...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Yeah I hear you on the performance. It does need more top end zip, but then out riding and trail riding with another lad on one the other day it felt perfectly perky, and I think we both concluded do we really need more power from it? Not really. Context is everything. Equally, I know from 'racing' ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Cheers Hugh, looks like a handy video that. At the minute I've given up for the day and charging the battery. I got the computer and Powertronic synced - the guy in India on the helpline was very useful - the problem I have and need to figure out is that when you have it all connected to configure y...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Struggling a bit to get this Powertronic to work. Got it all coupled up; it comes like a wiring harness with connectors for TPS, injector and one other thing, I forget what. The instructions are for the Continental, so don't help a lot. The bike fires up and runs but runs poorly and the engine manag...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Haha. I did mention it to the man at Hitchcocks but he didn't bite. Full RRP for me.

It's going to sting a bit if it's shit.
