Royal Enfield 650 Twins turned out to be a huge success for the company not only here in India but in other international markets as well. One of the main reasons behind the success of these bikes is the pricing. RE really hit the bull’s eye. However, now, the Royal Enfield 650 Twins will become Rs 10,000 more expensive to fulfil the stricter and more stringent BS6 emission norms.
As per the revealed price list, RE has hiked the price of its 650 Twins by Rs 10,000 across all the variants. So previously, the Interceptor 650 price used to start from Rs 2.55 lakh for its standard model. It has gone up to Rs 2.65 lakh. Similarly, the standard Continental GT 650 was previously priced at Rs 2.70 lakh and now it will retail at Rs 2.80 lakh.
Following is the detailed price list-
|Model||Old Price (BS4 Model)||New Price (BS6 Model)|
|Interceptor 650 STD||Rs 2.55 lakh||Rs 2.65 lakh|
|Interceptor 650 Custom||Rs 2.63 lakh||Rs 2.73 lakh|
|Interceptor 650 Chrome||Rs 2.76 lakh||Rs 2.86 lakh|
|Continental GT 650 STD||Rs 2.70 lakh||Rs 2.80 lakh|
|Continental GT 650 Custom||Rs 2.78 lakh||Rs 2.88 lakh|
|Continental GT 650 Chrome||Rs 2.91 lakh||Rs 3.01 lakh|
Even after this price hike, Royal Enfield 650 Twins continue to be the most affordable twin-cylinder and 650cc motorcycles in the Indian market.
As far as the specs are concerned, the 650cc parallel-twin engine is expected to produce the same 47 bhp of max power and 52 Nm of peak torque even in the BS6 state of tune. The rest of the mechanicals are also expected to remain untouched. More info coming soon.
