The duo has been equipped with clear lens headlamps in accordance with the new rules coming in effect from October 1, 2019. The report adds that both the bikes will get reflectors on the front forks very soon.
Both the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 have been performing consistently well in the middleweight segment with sales increasing every month.
The rival brand Honda is also contemplating the introduction of similar motorcycles with heavy local content. Royal Enfield could also launch a few new models based on the 650 architecture in the near future.
