As recent reports suggest of an impending safety law that ensures ABS systems to be fitted on all bikes, Royal Enfield has taken a step further and is planning to introduce the Anti-Lock Braking System on its future launch vehicle – the Himalayan.
Royal Enfield is evolving into a mass rider oriented brand, a lot of youngsters willing to buy the infamous 'Bullet', and also striving to be part of the brand are evident. Besides the Indian market, Royal Enfield has a strong presence in the global scenario as well. The Royal Enfield company which originated in the U.K., now gets to showcase its own bikes but with the Made In India tag. Recently, the CEO of Royal Enfield Siddhartha Lal, who took over as chief when he was only 26, relocated to the UK for further enhancing the company's presence in the European markets and to research and bring about changes in its market strategies.
If Royal Enfield intends to survive globally, it would have to rethink on ways to bring in products that are both worth the money but still worth the pleasure. The RE brand is known for its ruggedness and its unique way of surviving years of torture. With added research and successful input of updated technology, the brand may able to come in close competition with the others in this segment.
Coming back to India, Royal Enfield would be bringing its first, ABS equipped motorcycle in 2016 with the launch of the Himalayan, a highly rumored bike; the spy pictures revealed shows a better styled and adventure oriented motorcycle, unlike the normal Royal Enfield products that one might see today. The ABS system would come as an option, and buyers would be able to choose between the equipped and the non-equipped. However, the Himalayan is still under development, RE sources said that the bike would be launched only by next year.
The Himalayan would be running on an all-black 410cc, single-cylinder engine, and with the tag of an adventure bike, it would receive a few goodies like a raised handle bar, step-up seat, skid plates, redesigned mudguards, a monoshock suspension unit at the rear. With all that said, the Himalayan package is something to look out for and it might as well lift the image of the Royal Enfield company to even greater heights.
