2017 Bikesales Bike of the Year Awards: Best LAMS Adventure
Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner! The Royal Enfield Himalayan was announced as the 2017 Bikesales Bike of the Year Awards: Best LAMS Adventure bike!
As Bikesales say:
“The $6990 rideaway Himalayan was intended to be a simple, pure and basic motorcycle that will take you almost anywhere you want to go for as long as you want to go there. There are no bells or whistles: it’s just an honest little motorcycle that’s up for anything. It’s powered by an oil and air-cooled 411cc long-stroke SOHC engine, it’s carburetor-fed and squeezes out almost 25hp (18kW) and 32Nm of torque which is transferred to the rear wheel by a five-speed gearbox. The engine’s flexible, the brakes are excellent, the suspension is serviceable, and there’s plenty of feedback at both ends. It’s a motorcycle with old-school trailbike charm that has the courage to go where ever you’ve got the gall to point it.”
