The Royal Enfield 650 Twins are the toast of the town. There are two motorcycles, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650. The Interceptor 650 features the styling ethos of a roadster in the classic mould, while the Continental GT is, naturally, a cafe racer. Both the motorcycles use Royal Enfield's brand-new 648cc parallel twin cylinder engine. Which proves to be smooth, harmonious and impressive. It also has sounds brilliant thanks to the 270 degree firing order, even on the stock exhaust pipes. The new tubular double crade frame, basic but competent suspension, excellent brakes and standard dual-channel ABS completes a rather thorough if basic package. These are genuinely interesting, well-made, well-finished motorcycles that promise a lot of rides, a lot of memories and for Royal Enfield, a new chapter in the Indian market. The kicker is the price with the basic Interceptor - the one we would buy, starting at just Rs 2.50 lakh! That is a stunning package!
