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.

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.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Just a quick update; I hopped over to Hitchcocks today and bought a Powertronic thing. Will get it fitted this week and report back. Was going to try and measure MPG, 0-60 and 50-70 roll on in fifth, before and after.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Yes, I think that's pretty much all it does; make it run a bit richer.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Interesting one about this Powertronic business. I've just put up my own video update and it's fair to say I've been inundated by people telling me about Itchy Boots and her Poweretonic and how it's transformed the bike. I'm a cynic at heart and less than convinced, especially as there's a discount ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Dakar RE.jpg Could this be the new Dakar Himalayan, that Nathan was talking about a few pages back. If you start off with the 4k bike and spend extra on the suspension etc it might be a great little off road machine. Nah just 24 bhp I hear you say, same as CRF450L then :D It does look cool that but...
