The New 2022 Himalayan from Royal Enfield

I love the style of Royal Enfields, but they’ve always looked uncomfortable for anything longer than a day trip. However, it looks like that may have changed. Since its international debut in 2018, the Himalayan has undergone significant changes to appeal to more long-distance riders. (PS-there’s even talk of RE developing a 650 cc engine.)…

2022 Triumph Tiger

Teasing Test Shots of the New Triumph Tiger

Lighter, agile, transformed—this is some of the wording used to describe the new Triumph Tiger 1200, now in prototype testing.
