Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, Continental GT prices in India start at ₹2.50 lakh
“Keeping these motorcycles accessible is a key objective for us to bring in new people to the Royal Enfield way of pure motorcycling lifestyle and give our existing enthusiasts an irresistible opportunity to upgrade. We strongly believe that the 650 twins will be attractive, evocative motorcycles for our customers across India,” said Siddhartha Lal, chief executive of Royal Enfield. Nestled in a double-cradle, steel tubular chassis designed by the UK-based Harris Performance, the all-new, oil- and air-cooled 648cc twin-cylinder engine powering the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 puts out 47 BHP at 7,100rpm at the crank and 52 NM of torque at 4,000rpm. The visual differences between the two motorcycles lie in styling: the Interceptor is street-oriented—with its upright handlebars, flat seat and slightly rearset footpegs—while the Continental GT is the cafe racer complete with a humped seat and low clip-on handlebars.
