ROYAL Enfield is celebrating its 120th Anniversary with the release of two stunningly beautiful version of its popular 650 Twin motorcycles, the Interceptor and Continental GT. Just 30 of each were headed down under, and have sold out in just a few hours.
Priced at $13,990 ride away for the Interceptor 650 and $14,490 ride away for the Continental GT 650, an incredible amount of interesting following last night’s launch has seen them all snapped up. Both bikes come with a 3-year warranty and road side assist.
Conceptualised and designed in celebration of Royal Enfield’s rich and storied legacy, the motorcycles present a unique opportunity for global enthusiasts to own a piece of motorcycling history.
The unique, rich black-chrome tank colour scheme has been developed in-house, with Royal Enfield’s industry-leading chroming technology at the company’s original 1950’s manufacturing factory in Thiruvottiyur, Chennai – India.
To complement the black chrome tanks, both the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 will feature, for the first time, completely blacked out components, with the engine, silencer and other elements in an array of black colour schemes.
The motorcycles will also come equipped with a range of genuine accessories, including fly screens, engine guards, heel guards, touring and bar end mirrors, all of them in a black disguise to match the overall design.
The 120th Anniversary edition motorcycles will feature a very unique, handcrafted, die-cast brass tank badge, made in collaboration with the Sirpi Senthil family who are multi-generational artisans from the temple town of Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu, India.
Particularly specialised in making the elegant brass effigies for the most revered temples in India for centuries, this is the first time these artisans have collaborated with any automotive brand. The badge will also feature a unique serial number.
Royal Enfield hand-painted pinstripes will also feature. Additionally, the motorcycles will also bear a special side panel decal and Royal Enfield’s hand-painted pinstriping.
Inspired by the legendary Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 and Continental GT 250 of the 1960’s, these motorcycles have been instrumental in the brand’s global expansion and success over the last few years.
The significance and relevance of the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650, both in Royal Enfield’s glorious past, and modern history, made them an obvious choice for the anniversary edition.
