BSVI Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 spotted on test in India
Royal Enfield has been spotted testing their next generation of the Classic and Thunderbird in India a number of times. This time around, Royal Enfield has been seen updating their flagship motorcycle, the Continental GT 650 to BSVI. What gives it away? A newly styled exhaust. The Continental GT 650 on test has been equipped with a different exhaust which could be designed to reduce emissions to meet the stringent BSVI norms.
Other than that, the motorcycle appears to be identical to the current motorcycle on sale. The engine will be the same 650cc parallel-twin oil-cooled unit producing 47.5PS at 7,250rpm and 52Nm at 5,250rpm. The motorcycle will continue to have a 6-speed gearbox. The cycle parts will be the same on offer as well - telescopic suspension up front and dual shock absorbers in the rear.
Similar changes should be expected on the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and expect both the motorcycles to be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo. The price bump could be around Rs 10,000-12,000 and the Continental GT 650 could cost Rs 2.75 lakh ex-showroom, also, the Interceptor could see a price hike up to Rs 2.65 lakh, ex-showroom India.
