Royal Enfield is finally going to launch the highly anticipated Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 today and as you can imagine, there's quite a buzz about these motorcycles. The 650 twins get a new chassis, new liquid cooled engine and a host of other features that make it the best Royal Enfield yet. We got a chance to sample the 650s in California a couple of days ago and our comprehensive review will let you know all that you need to know about the bikes.
The RE 650 Twins are made for novice as well as experienced riders. It’s about #motorcycle giving you confidence. You can get it wrong & it stays confident & reliable.

The Royal Enfield 650 Twin began as a cafe racer and a roadster and a clean sheet with no restrictions. RE decided on a single global spec, single frame from the beginning.
