Acche din are here! Don’t believe us? Well, you better believe it son, ‘cause India’s favourite thumper unveiled two brand new motorcycles. EICMA Motor Show was graced with Royal Enfield’s latest offerings, the Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650. Yes, you read that right and no this is not a dream, 650cc bikes from Royal Enfield are really here. The modern 650cc twin engine is complimented by an all-new steel-tube cradle chassis that is shared on both bikes, but that’s where the similarities end. Just by looking at the bikes you realise that the Interceptor INT 650 favors a relaxed riding experience with up with its classic tear-drop shaped fuel-tank, quilted twin-seat and distinctive wide braced handlebars. The Continental GT 650, on the other hand, has an eager, front-leaning stance that gives it a sporty look and a speedy form. You can probably tell how excited we are when it comes to these new launches, from Royal Enfield and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. We will update you on the pricing as soon as it is announced.
