Royal Enfield took the wraps off the 120th Anniversary editions of the INT 650 and ContiGT 650 at the EICMA recently. The motorcycles commemorate the 120 years of existence of Royal Enfield. And since they will make their way to India next year, let’s see what makes them different from the regular models.
Before we tell you anything else about the Special Edition Royal Enfield 650 twins, you need to know that the motorcycles are ultra-exclusive. The company has announced only 480 units of each model will be built, out of which only 60 each will make it to India.
Unique paint scheme
Both, the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 120th Anniversary editions sport a completely blacked-out look. Except for the upper half of the forks, the engine sump guard, and a few bolts here and there, the motorcycles are done up in Black Chrome. And to complement this is the gold pinstripes on the fuel tank and the gold-finished graphics on the side panels.
Some more limited-edition elements…
Moreover, the Royal Enfield special edition motorcycles also get motif on the fuel tank with a unique serial number on each motorcycle for more exclusivity. There also are die-cast brass badges on the fuel tank made in association with the Kumbakonam-based Sirpi Senthil artisan family.
Loaded with accessories
For final touches on the 120th Anniversary Interceptor and Continental GT 650, Royal Enfield has added accessories to the mix. They come with brown handle grips and stitched seats along with black flyscreens. The Continental GT 650 also gets bar-end mirrors as standard.
Higher price tag
While Royal Enfield has not announced a price tag for the special edition models, considering their exclusivity and added accessories, expect them to be priced higher than the standard model’s top-end variants. For reference, the Interceptor 650 Chrome costs Rs 3.03 lakh, and the Continental GT 650 Chrome is priced at Rs 3.20 lakh.
