Royal Enfield will soon launch its limited-edition Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 in the American market. The company confirmed the update via its USA website. The Chennai-based manufacturer will only produce 480 units of the two motorcycles, distributed as 120 units each for India, Europe, America, and South-East Asia. The 60 units for each region are split into 30 Continental GT 650 and 30 Interceptor INT 650.
These motorcycles will be sold through a first-come-first-serve flash sale. To give you a quick recap, the 120th Anniversary editions get a special ‘Black Chrome’ finish through a process that was developed by Royal Enfield in the 1950s. Apart from the Black Chrome finish, these special-edition motorcycles also sport completely blacked-out engine covers and exhaust canisters. Further, Royal Enfield has also kitted the 120th Anniversary models with fly screens, engine guards, heel guards, and bar end mirrors that are otherwise offered as optional accessories. Lastly, these models get a handmade brass tank badge and a unique serial number.
The mechanical specifications and other hardware remain unaltered, and these special edition Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 continue to use the 649cc parallel-twin engine. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the motor is tuned to deliver 47bhp and 52Nm of peak torque. The hardware comprises telescopic front forks, twin rear spring, disc brakes, and 18-inch wire-spoke wheels.
