Royal Enfield launched its adventure tourer, the Himalayan in India at Rs. 1,55,545 (ex-showroom Maharashtra).
With the launch, the excitement among the Royal Enfield lovers has already at its peak, however, Delhities couldn’t excite that much, as the bike won’t be hitting the Delhi stores for now, at least for few months.
The Delhi Transport Department has restricted registrations for the newly launched two-wheelers that comply with BS-III emission norms. And, the state government shows green signal for the motorcycles compiling with BS-IV emission norms. As of now, the Indian government follows BS-III emission norms for two-wheelers and BS-IV for passenger vehicles. With the new rule, limited to Delhi, all new models of two-wheelers need to comply with BS-IV norms by April 1 2016.
The Himalayan will have to meet the state government protocol in order to make it convenient for adventure freaks in Delhi, until then they may see the bikes in the showrooms, but they can’t take it to roads. We heard that the company is already working on a BS-IV complaint engine, so keep your hopes high, as you don’t have to wait that longer.
