Royal Enfield 650 Continental GT and Interceptor 650’s delivery will commence from January 2019.
Royal Enfield 650 Twins finally make it to the market, the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 have been released. Royal Enfield 650 is available in six variants and the chrome versions are priced at Rs 2.85lakh and Rs 2.70lakh (ex-showroom) for Continental and Interceptor respectively.
Both the motorcycles were displayed at the EICMA 2017 and grabbed the attention of the whole world. Both the 650cc motorcycles are available for booking at an amount of Rs 5,000, similar as other models from the brand.
Powered by Royal Enfield’s first modern parallel-twin engine, both the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 come with an appealing stance and promise high performance. Already on sale in several European markets, these two models have been among the most awaited ones in India. With these two motorcycles, Royal Enfield aims to be a big player in the global sub 1-litre capacity motorcycle segment.
While the Interceptor 650 is a completely new model adding more colour to the brand’s lineup, the Continental GT 650 is the same model with a bigger engine and more advanced tech. The motorcycle manufacturer has been keen to grab a strong spot in the Indian market’s sub-1-litre category and with these two models, the brand hopes to see some bright light in the coming days.
Speaking about the all-new parallel-twin engine, this 747cc motor is capable of churning out 46 bhp of peak power and 52 Nm of peak torque. For transmission duty, there is a 6-speed gearbox with slipper-clutch. These two Royal Enfield models are expected to throw a tough challenge to a huge category of pricing and capabilities from multiple manufacturers.
