Royal Enfield has confirmed it will open bookings for the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 in India in Q3 FY2018 (October-December). The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 made their world debut at the EICMA 2017.
The Interceptor 650 is a neo-classic street bike, while the GT 650 is a quintessential café racer. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 features a teardrop fuel tank, round headlight, clip-on handlebars and a single café racer-style seat. On the other hand, the Interceptor 650 features a circular fuel tank, flat-seat, raised handlebar, and a circular headlamp. That said, the Royal Enfield 650 twins share the frame, suspension setup, engine, wheels, and even the tires with each other. However, both get different ergonomics.
Powering the Royal Enfield 650 twins is a newly-developed 648 cc, twin-cylinder, 8-valve, oil-cooled, SOHC engine with fuel injection. The parallel twin motor is capable of generating a maximum power of 47 bhp at 7,100 rpm along with a peak torque of 52 Nm at 5,250 rpm. The engine gets a slip and assists clutch as standard with the company’s first 6-speed gearbox.
