The Chennai based retro bike making company Royal Enfield has planned a couple of motorcycles for this year and the Interceptor 650, Continental GT 650 is one of those. The was recently spotted in rather new black/grey and white/red color schemes which can be among the new paint schemes in which company is planning to sell these bikes in the country. Though before going any further, you should know that these bikes were not spotted on the Indian soil but in Australia.
Talking about the Continental GT 650, the bikes have received new paint in the form of part black-part grey tank with a yellow stripe running vertically. While the Interceptor 650 has been updated with a white tank with the low end gets red treatment. While portions like side panels, front fender, and rims all are commonly black painted.
Both the bike though are separated by design and paints, but at the heart runs on the same 648cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled engine that is capable of churning out 47bhp and 52Nm of torque. Also, the company has planned to give these bikes dual-channel ABS for maximum safety. While assist and slipper clutch can also be seen on both the bikes.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 price and Continental GT price in India is expected to fall around Rs 3 lakh to Rs 3.2 lakh. Though at present there is no technical competition for both these bikes but they expect to lock horns with the Harley-Davidson Street 750 which stands as even more premium product than these two.
