Based on brand new 400cc Royal Enfield Himalayans, the fuel tank, front and rear mudguard are all resprayed, with headlight grille and handguards added during reassembly.

Customers can choose from postbox red, sky blue and mustard yellow, and other colours may be offered in future.

“We imported Royal Enfield into the UK from 1999-2013, prior to becoming a franchised dealer, so we know the bikes inside out,” explains Watsonian MD Ben Matthews.

“Painting the mudguards, as well as the tank, really makes these specials stand out from the crowd. And if you want a sidecar to match, we can help with that, too!”

Available exclusively from Watsonian, special edition Himalayans sell for £4,895 on the road, which includes paintwork, headlight grille and hand guards, plus full manufacturer warranty.
