Visually, the snow-themed camouflaged paint job is attractive, especially for touring bikes like Himalayan. The Sleet model comes with the ‘Explorer Kit’ as a standard fitment, along with off-road style cross-brace aluminium handlebar and an engine guard. The mounting rails in the bike can hold 26 litre capacity panniers each, while the panniers are made of aluminium and are water-resistant. Extra protection to handle-bar in terms of end weight has been enabled.
Rest of the mechanical and tech specs are same as the regular Himalayan. The engine is a 411 cc air-cooled, single pot SOHC unit that is fuel-injected. It is housed inside a half-duplex split cradle frame. Paired to a 5-speed gearbox, the engine generates 24.5 bhp of max power at 6,500 rpm, and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm. The bike is suspended with 41 mm telescopic fork in the front wheel and a mono-shock with linkage at the rear.
