    Can I put alloy wheels on Himalayan?

    If your primary purpose is just city rides and local driving, you could do this. But if you want the pure soul of Himalayan to stay as it is, then have the spoke wheels as it is or you can replace spoke wheels with high quality alloy wheels that are being offered in KTM 390 or BMW G310, which would cost more.

    Is Himalayan suitable for 5.7 height?

    The Himalayan is ergonomically perfect for someone who is 5'10 or above. But that doesn't mean short riders can't swing a leg over it. Its lowest-in-class seat height (800 mm) ensures that it is ergonomically friendly for even slightly shorter riders.
