As seen from the spy images by Rushlane, the BS-VI version of the Continental GT 650 comes with little to no cosmetic updates. This is apart from a slight extension to the exhaust pipes and the slightly more elongated pillion seat cover.

The Chennai-based bike manufacturer launched the 650-twins late last year and since then the two motorcycles have become the best-selling products in the segment. Both the 650-twins: Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650 are priced highly competitively, with the BS-VI version expected to receive a slight hike in prices.

The BS-VI version of the Continental GT seen in the spy pics is expected to be offered a similar power output. The same engine will also be powering the Interceptor 650 as well.
