The news about Royal Enfield increasing the prices of its 650 Twins surfaced sometime during the mid of last month. It was being said that the brand will implement or enforce the new prices from 1st of September. Well, it has.
All the variants of both the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 have received a price hike of 2%. The thing to note here is that Royal Enfield is yet to update the pricing on its website but if you visit any dealership now, you’d be quoted the updated price.
Following are the changes in the pricing-
|Model||Old Price (Rs)||New Price (Rs)||Hike (Rs)|
|Interceptor 650 Std||2,50,610||2,56,372||5,762|
|Interceptor 650 Custom||2,58,109||2,64,029||5,920|
|Interceptor 650 Chrome||2,70,609||2,76,791||6,182|
|Continental GT 650 Std||2,65,609||2,71,573||5,964|
|Continental GT 650 Custom||2,73,109||2,79,329||6,220|
|Continental GT 650 Chrome||2,85,609||2,92,092||6,483|
Even after the price hike, the 650 Twins continue to be the most affordable twin-cylinder bikes in the country. Royal Enfield is also working on the BS 6 variants of the 650s which are expected to be launched in the country before 1st April 2020. Of course, those models will come at an even higher price tag.
