Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, Interceptor 650 Launched in India
Finally, a long wait is over now. Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 have been launched in India.
Both were showcased for the first time at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. The two motorcycles share a 648cc, twin cylinder engine that gets liquid-cooling and is good for producing a peak power output of 47 bhp along with a maximum torque of 52 Nm.
The Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 are the only bikes in the company's line up at present to feature a twin cylinder engine.
Both have disc brakes at both ends and a dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) comes as standard for additional safety.
The two bikes share parts including engine, chassis and suspension with each other. But they are different in body styling and riding geometry. While the Interceptor 650 is an old-school roadster, the Continental GT 650 is a cafe racer.
