Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

The only fly in the ointment I have is my new clocks which have been on a week are misting already!!!! The dealers are pulling their hair out as RE don't seem to have a solution. I think maybe they need to do a recall and look at suitable replacements. Shame as everything else is fine

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Well back from 3 day away down to Brighton from the West Mids and back. As previous decent trips the himalayan handled well 2 up with luggage as per the photo. In fact the engine seems to prefer and handle the extra weight well. If required it could accelerate up to 80 but prefers 60 mph and returne...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Had a morning riding mine today and a couple of niggles, clocks slightly misted but nothing too problematic. But one thing that did bother me was a couple of times it cut out whilst coming to a stop and then once when I pulled away. Bit disconcerting but only 500 miles on it so far, so maybe it nee...

The most challenging was probably Green Lane which runs off the A515, from Harrington to Middleton. Apar...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Jak I reckon there were a few dodgy batches of clocks as everyone ain't had the issue. I just think they need to sort the customer focus side to fix these niggles quickly and there would be no issue.

Re: WK400 owners thread.
