The new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has the familiar looks of the Himalayan 411 but the bike now uses an entirely new platform codenamed K1. The core adventure bike DNA is retained in the new Himalayan 450 as this bike comes across as a premium adventure bike. Features such as a round headlamp and rearview mirrors, matching frame construction, and raised front fender give this bike the adventure touring bike look. Spoke wheels with knobby tyres is another feature the new Himalayan 450 will share from the previous Himalayan 411. The use of a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel setup will also be the same as the Himalayan 411. Upswept exhaust is another feature that resembles the Himalayan 411. The centrally placed footpegs, thick saddle, and pulled-back wide handlebars ensure a relaxed riding position with the Himalayan 450.
