Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 gets new rival from Kove

Chinese manufacturer Kove has unveiled its offering in the middleweight adventure-touring segment called the 510X. The motorcycle features a styling similar to the BMW R1250 GS, with a muscular fuel tank, split seat setup, and cross-spoke wheels. Powering the Kove 510X is a 498cc parallel-twin engine producing close to 48bhp and 45Nm of torque.

It comes with a steel tube frame and an aluminum swingarm, along with adjustable forks from KYB and a fully adjustable progressive mono-shock for suspension. The motorcycle weighs 205kg and offers a 20-litre fuel tank. In terms of features, it includes an LCD cluster, crash guards, and LED lighting. While it will compete against models like the Honda CB500X, Royal Enfield Himalayan 450, KTM 390 Adventure, and Benelli TRK 502, there are no plans for an India launch at this time.
