Royal Enfield Himalayan 452: Tyres & Wheels
For the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452, CEAT Tyres has developed an all-new tyre sub-brand, the CEAT Gripp RE. While the front 90/90-21 tube-type tyre is CEAT Gripp RE F, the rear 140/80 R17 is a one-of-a-kind tube-type radial tyre, the CEAT Gripp Rad Steel RE.
The CEAT Gripp RE tyre has an angular block pattern for its tread, capable of holding grip on uneven dry surfaces, thanks to its block act-like teeth. The tread blocks of this tyre have an ideal distance between them for easy evacuation of water, thus allowing it to hold a firm grip on wet surfaces. Adding more ruggedness to the CEAT Gripp RE is the stiffer sidewall, which gives it a high-strength load-carrying capacity, further matching the off-road riding prowess of the Himalayan 452.

Royal Enfield Himalayan 452: Looks & Design
The new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 looks like a more modern evolution of the current-generation Himalayan 411, with a more voluptuous fuel tank, slimmer side panels and more comfortable split seat arrangement. It also has additional modern features like an all-LED headlamp, tail lamp, turn indicators and a full-TFT 4-inch instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, along with three riding modes – Eco, Performance (rear ABS on) and Performance (rear ABS off).
Royal Enfield Himalayan 452: Engine & Specifications
The new Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 debuts the all-new Sherpa 450 engine, the brand’s first liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. Paired with a new 6-speed transmission, this 451.65cc engine generates 40 PS of maximum power and 40 Nm of maximum torque.
Sitting on a new twin-spar steel tubular frame, the new Himalayan 452 also gets a new suspension setup over the Himalayan 411 – 43mm upside-down front forks with 200mm travel and mono-shock with pre-load adjustability and 200mm travel at the rear, both from Showa. For braking, the Himalayan 452 gets a 320mm disc at the front and a 270mm disc at the rear, coupled with a dual-channel ABS.
