A motorcycle with strong adventure lineage yet remains true to our philosophy of pure motorcycling. The all-new Himalayan retains the capability, versatility and the ability to go anywhere your adventure takes you. Nothing you dont need and everything that you do for the changing times.

Decades of expeditions. Thousands of miles of traversing the most challenging terrain. Years of living and evolving with a machine that responds to the mountains. That's how we made the Himalayan, our first dual-purpose motorcycle.

Adventure-ready handling
The best chassis is the one you don’t notice. From the versatile 21” front 17” rear wheel combination to the large enduro footpegs and wide handlebars, the Himalayan works with you in all situations on or off-road. The slim seat and tank let you get your feet firmly on the ground when you stop, while increased ground clearance and longer travel suspension let you choose the roughest tracks.

The half-duplex split cradle frame and long travel suspension keep you in harmony with road, rocks, and everything in between.

USD forks
Quality suspension lets you keep the bike on the line you’ve chosen over the roughest terrain and that’s exactly what you get from the inverted Showa cartridge fork.

Versatile performance
Like the high-altitude Sherpa that inspired it, this engine has the torque to pull you out of a sandy hollow at 5,000 meters above sea level while being able to enjoy the 5 day trip back home afterward.

Seat Height
Nobody wants to stop riding because they’re saddle sore. So the new Himalayan features an adjustable two-piece seat to keep both rider (825 mm) and pillion (845 mm) comfortable, along with an optional low seat (805 mm) to keep your feet on the ground at any altitude.

The steel twin-spar frame is stronger, stiffer and narrower between the legs for improved comfort while riding in a standing position. Better handling, better stability and better balance.

Switchable ABS
Dual channel ABS as standard with the option of switching it off at the rear wheel for an engaging ride and for more control while riding on off-road surfaces.

Tour-minded design
The new improved seat lets you cover longer distances with even more comfort. Panniers at the back. Jerry cans in the front. The Himalayan's mounting points let you strap up and set off anytime. The LCD dashboard lets you track everything from miles to maintenance.

Steadfast ride
Hefty 17" and 21" wheels with dual purpose tires, for a steady grip on all roads and no roads.

Ride by Wire with Rider Modes
Ride-by-wire with four riding modes so you can tune the response to suit the terrain and your mood, while in the background the bike delivers smooth fuelling and better fuel economy.

Water Wading
Engines and water don’t mix. But adventure and river crossings go hand-in-hand so we developed the Himalayan with a high up air intake under the tank to keep you rolling when the rivers are running high.
