The Chennai based motorcycle maker, Royal Enfield has already launched two of its highly anticipated motorcycles, the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 in the European motorcycle market recently. The company launched the same at the 2018 EICMA show in Milan and pricing of the same has been set at 6600 Euros (Rs 5.50 lakh), and 6400 Euros (Rs 5.33 lakh); respectively.
The company is also gearing up for the Indian launch of these bikes which have already garnered huge anticipation in our market. Since Royal Enfield wants to compete for a segment which would make it easy for the masses to upgrade to 650cc motorcycles, we expect these bikes to be priced under good Rs 3 lakh. You can expect these bikes to be launched in the country by next week, and deliveries of the same will commence by early December.
Both the bikes run on the same 648cc inline-twin liquid-cooled engine which churns out close to 47bhp of maximum power and 52Nm of peak torque is available at 5200rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. The bikes will be available with standard features such as ABS and slipper clutch.
Stay tuned as we bring you more updates on the same.
