How are US Himalayan sales going?     Been rather quiet on that front since all of the initial buzz.   Another flash in the pan?

Good question. At first they went from, better hurry put your deposit down. To seeing them now listed on Craigslist and Ebay.

my dealer tells me they have done quite well with them........not sure what that means though. They would rather sell Triumph (higher $ sale) than RE, but Triumph makes nothing like the Himalayan.

The TOTAL factory production for the Himalayan by Royal Enfield was
July = 811, Aug = 536, Sept = 1140, Oct = 1089

Total factory production for all models of the Royal Enfield was
July = 67000, Aug = 67004, Sept = 70065, Oct = 70004

The vast majority of these were the 350cc models sold in India.

Arizoni, how do you know so much? No matter what the subject you seem to have actual facts on it. Thanks. I may need to get a Himalayan one of these years. They are certainly cheap enough and I think I could throw some of my lightweight camping gear on and go for an adventure.

In this case, I belong to a web site in India and a guy publishes the motorcycle/motorscooter production numbers there.

I don't know where he gets his data but he seems to know what each factory in India puts on the market, every month.  I suspect he works for the Indian government because he even knows what the Harley Davidson company and Triumph has for sale in India and these brands are usually very secretive about what they are doing.

Here's a link to his latest post:

Well there are people out there modding street scramblers to actually function off road, but they are not off the shelf bikes by any stretch of the imagination.
