The single seat and cowl are just two amongst the 40 different types of accessories that RE is offering with the 650 twins
Royal Enfield launched the 650 twins in India last month. While we all expected their deliveries to commence from early January but fortunately RE has already started the deliveries of the motorcycle from the month of December only. The Interceptor 650 is the cheaper motorcycle amongst the two and is priced at Rs. 2.50 Lakhs (ex-showroom India) while the Continental GT is priced at Rs. 2.65 Lakhs.
RE is also offering plenty of new accessories for both the motorcycles. In these images, you can notice the Interceptor 650 has been fitted with a single seat and a white cowl. RE is charging Rs. 3,500 for the single seat while the cowl is priced at Rs. 2,500.
The single seat will definitely attract the attention of those who love to ride alone. The seat is not only comfortable and heavily padded but also adds a touch of sportiness to this Neo Retro motorcycle. The White cowl on the other hand, which is used mostly for café racers to keep the rider locked in their position while they manoeuvre or change directions at high speeds helps in adding a sporty look to the Interceptor.
Royal Enfield is offering 40 different types of accessories with the 650 twins. Out of which 32 of the accessories are common to both the motorcycles while the rest of the 8 are model specific. There is a huge demand for the 650 twins and Royal Enfield has already sold out the new models till March 2019 (according to some dealers).
Both the 650 twins are manufactured in India and they will be exported to other International markets of Europe and US. The 650 twins will help RE to establish themselves in the competitive middleweight motorcycle category.
Both the 650 twins are powered by a 648 cc parallel-twin cylinder, air, and oil cooled, fuel injected motor which gets 270-degree firing order. The engine produces about 47 ps of peak power and 52 Nm of torque. The smooth and torquey unit is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. RE is also offering a dual channel ABS and slipper clutch with the 650 twins for the very first time.
