50HP Royal Enfield Himalayan MJR Roach Video Released: Last year, Royal Enfield showcased a modified Himalayan at London’s 2019 ‘Bike Shed Show’, labelled as MJR Roach. The brand has now officially released a video of the perfectly-customized motorcycle.
The model packs a turbocharger and is capable to generate 50HP of maximum power, which is more than twice the power figure generated by the stock model of the adventure motorcycle. The RE Himalayan MJR Roach features rugged styling and premium hardware that gives it a unique and distinctive look. Here is the official video of the custom-made motorcycle:

Going by the design, the MJR Roach is equipped with unique-looking four-pod projector lights. The windscreen of the stock model has also been removed and there is a custom panel that has been installed just above the headlamps. The rear end of the bike continues to use a mono-shock suspension, while the front end has been equipped with thick upside-down telescopic forks.
Even the chassis has been given a new paint scheme that matches the crash bars and headlights. There is a yellow belt that runs through the top-centre of the motorcycle and it adds a nice contrast to the visual appeal. We must say that this turbocharged Royal Enfield motorcycle looks ready to tackle extreme conditions.
Coming to the wheels, the rear one features a massive change as the customised motorcycle is equipped with an extra-wide tyre with an attractive looking alloy wheel. The front wheel of the motorcycle has not been switched and it is the same factory-fitted 21-inch wire-spoke wheel. Both the wheels feature off-road spec knobby tyres.
The premium touch to the bike has been added by installing a single-sided swingarm that has replaced the twin-sided setup. Instead of the conventionally positioned stock exhaust, the Himalayan MJR Roach features a customized twin-pipe exhaust system.
The stock model of the Royal Enfield Himalayan is powered by a BS6-compliant 411cc, single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled, fuel-injected engine that develops 24.3 HP of maximum power and 32 Nm of peak torque. The engine of the bike comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. At present, the stock model of the Himalayan is available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.90 lakhs in India.
