RE shows off another test bed version of their sometime-in-the-future electric motorcycle (that will likely be unaffordable to most of the Indian market):  https://www.notebookcheck.net/Electric-Royal-Enfield-Himalayan-makes-shocking-debut-at-EICMA-bearing-polished-Himalayan-452-styling.765979.0.html

Royal Enfield Himalayan Electric concept unveiled!
Neil Nair; November 07, 2023

https://www.bikewale.com/news/royal-enfield-himalayan-electric-concept-unveiled/?utm_source=BWSubscription&utm_medium=BrowserNotification&utm_campaign=BikewaleWebNotification&utm_term=164339

- Showcased at EICMA 2023
- Is a platform for future e-mobility
- Could be launched by 2025
Royal Enfield has officially taken the wraps off the Himalayan Electric Concept at the EICMA 2023 alongside the Himalayan 452.
While specs and details of the electric motorcycle haven’t been disclosed, the reveal showed the e-Himalayan concept being ridden somewhere in the mountains, off the road and even on it. But more importantly, it showcased the design, or rather what we can expect from the production model.
Unsurprisingly, the Royal Enfield Electric Himalayan concept borrows heavily from the new Himalayan 452 and comes with sleek styling. It gets a circular, full-LED headlamp with a large windscreen and an interesting-looking tank that flows directly into a single-piece seat. Underneath, it houses the tightly packed electric motor. The concept also comes fitted with chunky upside-down forks at the front and what looks like an adjustable rear shock.
Royal Enfield has also revealed that the real-world testing as well as wind tunnel testing for the Himalayan Electric has been in the process for a few years now but we can only expect the motorcycle to debut in production form by 2025. For now, we have the option to choose the Himalayan 452 which seems like a massive leap from the Himalayan 411 that will be discontinued this month.
A trifecta of Pre-Unit Bullets: a Red Deluxe 500, a Green Standard 500, and a Black ES 350.

I wonder what else they’re going to reveal this week. Or is all we get is the Himy 450 and the EV that almost no one wants?

Whaddyamean no-one wants? Be an early adopter ($$$). Buy two, you can park them on either side of your Livewire in your living room. Be sure to leave on the price tags to impress upwardly-mobile friends & party-goers. You'll be the first one on the block with a $40K electric Oreo collection.

 A first look it looks very odd/silly Himmy EV, but why not? It'll surely will test the reliability of all the components by knocking the living daylights out of them. Really it’s quite a brilliant test bed after once I think on it.

Last Saturday after a year of pressure from my friend that owned a HD LiveWire, I took a good long 30 mile test ride on a HD S2 Del Mar. Zero to 60 in thee seconds. :D It was a real kick in the pants! In that 30 miles I used up 49% of the charge. 15 of those miles was on echo mode the rest was on sport.  If RE made a EV street bike with a good 180-200 mile range and level three charging I would take a good look at one.
