In terms of pricing, the updated model is expected to get a minor price hike of around INR 2,000 to INR 4,000. For your reference, the current-gen model of Himalayan 411 is available with a starting ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.91 lakhs for the basic shades while the dual-tone colours are available at INR 1.96 lakhs.
