2023 Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 vs Himalayan 411: Specifications Comparison

Takeaways: –

  • One of the most notable differences is the new liquid engine with higher displacement (called Sherpa 450) that packs an extra punch for enhanced performance and improved capability to beat challenging terrains.
  • It also gets a more sophisticated 6-speed transmission with a slip-&-assist clutch for smoother downshifts and reduced wheel hooping.
  • To enhance its off-road prowess and long-distance touring capabilities, the new Himalayan 450 gets the inverted front fork instead of its conventional forks, improved rear wheel travel, enhanced ground clearance & wheelbase, larger disc brakes, bigger fuel tank and a wider rear tire.
  • With an enhanced feature list, Royal Enfield is also pushing the envelope to provide riders with a more comfortable journey,

All-in-all, the 2023 Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 ADV has successfully built upon the legacy of the Himalayan 411 and will create a new chapter in the adventure touring realm.
