Royal Enfield has announced the launch of the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 in India on 14 November 2018.

In September, both the Royal Enfield 650 Twins were launched in the USA. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650's prices start at USD 5,799 (INR 4.27 lakh) onwards, while the Continental GT 650 costs USD 5,999 (INR 4.42 lakh) in America.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is a modern-classic café racer. It features a tear-drop fuel tank, clip-on handlebars and a single seat.

Both the bikes get 18-inch wire-spoke wheels wrapped in 100-section front and 130-section rear tube-type Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres.

The engine is mated to Royal Enfield’s first 6-speed gearbox, with a standard slip-assist clutch. Both the bikes get power from an all-new 648 cc, parallel-twin cylinder, SOHC, oil-cooled, 8-valve engine that generates 52 Nm of peak torque at 5,200 rpm along with 47 bhp of maximum power at 7,100 rpm.

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 has a fuel tank capacity of 13.7-litre and with a kerb weight of 202 kg whereas the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 gets a 12.5-litre fuel tank and has a kerb weight of 197 kg.
