Royal Enfield is about to launch the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 globally. The two motorcycles powered by their new 650cc parallel twin engine have an air of retro cool about them. So Royal Enfield has decided to also release clothing and accessory lines which match their retro flavour. RE isn't doing full on technical gear but preferring to do gear that looks normal, has protection but looks good off the bike also. Royal Enfield will also be offering a list of 40 accessories, which you can read about here. Below is a look at some of the new riding gear and apparel.
