Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 & Continental GT 650
The Interceptor 650 & Continental GT 650 which mark a new chapter for Royal Enfield not only in India but globally as well.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 borrow heavily from the original motorcycles of 1960-70s.
Both the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 will be available in three variants - Standard, Custom and Chrome. All three variants have the same mechanicals and the only difference is cosmetic - different colour schemes and different badges.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 borrow heavily from the original motorcycles of 1960-70s. The bikes are retro in design, underpinned by an all-new frame developed by RE subsidiary Harris Performance in the UK.
The only negatives that we could think about are cosmetic - lack of LED headlights, and a clock on the instrument panel, as well as a gear position indicator.
The Royal Enfield 650 Twins get a brand-new 649 cc, air/oil cooled, parallel-twin engine which puts out 47 bhp of power at 7250 rpm and 52 Nm of peak torque at 5250 rpm.
Both bikes get a twin-pod instrumentation console gives you the old-school cool feels.
Royal Enfield has really upped the game and the brand new 650 Twins are comparable to the best modern classics available on offer, although there is no liquid-cooling, ride-by-wire or fancy electronics.
