Royal Enfield 650cc India-price details have been revealed. Our sources have confirmed that the new Royal Enfield Interceptor will be priced at Rs 4 lakh on-road. The British-origin motorcycle brand will launch the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor on 14 November 2018.
Bookings for the new 650cc Royal Enfield motorcycles will also start on the same day at an amount of Rs 5000. Meanwhile, deliveries of the new Royal Enfield 650cc models will commence only in January 2019.
Coming back to the pricing, Royal Enfield has competitively priced their latest products, especially when compared to the other parallel-twin motorcycles on the market. Since the on-road price of the Interceptor is around Rs 4 lakh (Bangalore), it will have an ex-showroom cost of around Rs 3.25 lakh, if we exclude taxes.
As for the slightly more premium Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, the ex-showroom price will be close to Rs 3.40 lakh. Both the Continental GT and Interceptor showcase a retro-inspired styling and will be two of the cheapest parallel-twin modern classics on sale.
The Royal Enfield 650cc twins have already been launched in certain global markets. The price for the Interceptor 650 in European markets is 6,200 euros or approximately Rs 5.16 lakh. As for the Continental GT 650, the amount stands at 6,400 euros (around Rs 5.33 lakh)
The two Royal Enfield motorcycles were also showcased at the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. At the event, the company revealed that they aim to absorb a major amount of the mid-size motorcycle market, across the world.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor and Continental GT are powered by a 649cc parallel-twin engine which makes 47bhp and 52Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch (standard option).
Once launched, the 650cc Royal Enfield twins will be two of the most value-for-money motorcycles for their price tag. They will be a cheaper alternative to the successful Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Triumph Bonneville Street Twin.

Royal Enfield has a strong fan community in the country and many have been waiting to get their hands on the brand's first parallel-twin motorcycles (in recent times), for a long a time.
