So, you want a Himalayan? Maybe you’ve come in to Throttle Company and done a test ride. Maybe they just look cool in all of the Youtube videos by Itchy Boots.
Psssst. Not sure if you heard, but the 2021 Himalayan will have switchable ABS, 6 color options, and has an MSRP $4,999 (plus tax, title, fees).
Wherever your desire for the Himalayan comes from, we FINALLY have answers to some of your questions about the 2021!
As of this writing (8/22/2020), the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan is PRE-ORDER ONLY.
That’s right. The only way to get a 2021 Himalayan right now is to pre-order one from your favorite Royal Enfield dealership (which is us, right?!). 😉
We’re not sure if the process will be opened up to dealerships directly to order non pre-ordered units for 2021. But right now, we’re getting set up to facilitate the PRE-ORDER ONLY process. Dealers WILL be able to order showroom units, but only AFTER the Pre-Order direct to customers program is over. And when those dealership units will arrive is still unconfirmed!
Quantities are limited to 300 Himalayan motorcycles for ALL OF NORTH AMERICA.
So, how do you get one?
Starting SEPTEMBER 1st, you’ll be able to go to the Royal Enfield website (or our Himalayan Information Page that will be updated as info is available!) and create a customer profile. We’re not sure what information they’ll ask for, but it will probably be name, email, phone, etc.
***We’re normally closed on Tuesdays (Sept 1 is a Tuesday!). But since we have the feeling that the pre-order will sell out QUICKLY (hint, hint, nudge nudge!) we’re going to be available SPECIAL HOURS Tuesday Sept 1 Noon-(TBD) to take and process pre-orders.
The really important part of step one is to select THROTTLE COMPANY as your desired dealership. You will be assigned a “Unique Buyer Code” via email. We will need this code. Without this code, you cannot get a Himalayan! ***You will see the code on the screen once your profile is created AND it will be emailed to you.
2. Once you have your “Unique Buyer Code,” you’ll bring it in to Throttle Company and we will be able to put in your order. The earlier you come in to place a deposit, the more likely you are to get your color choice!
***You will also have the option to call in or email us the code if you’ve already placed a deposit! We can collect your deposit STARTING TODAY 8/27/2020. NO need to wait!
Throttle Company will have special hours September 1st from 12-7 to receive pre-order deposits once you have your code.
The pre-order process does require a $500 deposit to order a Himalayan. If you want to complete the entire purchase at that time, we can do that too!
***You can come into the store, place the deposit and provide the information we need to create your profile PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 1st. We will then submit your profile and place your order.
Your “spot in line” will be determined by when you put down your deposit, NOT when you create your “Unique Buyer Code.”
Himalayans will arrive at Throttle Company for the pre-delivery inspection IN THE ORDER THEY WERE ORDERED. So, while the pre-order program goes until September 30th (or until all 300 are sold out), it is recommended that you put your order in as early as you can to ensure timely delivery and your first choice in color.
Annnnnnd, when will you get it?
- Starting OCTOBER 1st, 2021 Himalayans will be shipped. IN THE ORDER THE DEPOSITS WERE PUT DOWN. Royal Enfield tells us that the shipping window is October 1st through October 30th. Again, shipped in the order they were officially ordered through the deposit process.
2. Once they’re here in Columbus, in the shop, we will perform the Pre-Delivery Inspection and let you know when you can come pick it up and complete the purchase process!
In case you’re wondering, yes! We DO have financing. It’s based on your credit score, the price of the motorcycle (after deposit/down payment considerations), AND can include accessories! We work with Freedom Road Financial (so aptly named!) to provide special Royal Enfield rates.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan will be ready to accept panniers, sump guards, and many other Himalayan accessories to get you out in the wilderness. Or just around the block.
Built for all roads. Built for no roads!
