At the start of the new year, Royal Enfield has increased the prices of its motorcycles, including Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. The latest price increase is likely due to higher production costs. Even with the price hike, Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 remain the most affordable 650cc bikes in the country.

2022 Royal Enfield 650cc – No updates

There are no styling or performance updates with the recent price hike. Both bikes continue their neo-retro styling.

Both engines share the same 648cc, parallel twin, air/oil-cooled engine that generates 47PS of maximum power at 7,150rpm and 52Nm of peak torque at 5,250rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh transmission. Chassis consists of a tubular steel frame with bolted truss, integrated with 41 mm telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers.

Continental GT and Interceptor have 18-inch wheels on both ends, shod with 100/90 front and 130/70 rear tires. Braking duties are performed by 320mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes. Dual-channel ABS is offered as standard.

Upcoming Royal Enfield 650cc bikes

To offer enthusiasts in the 650cc segment more options, Royal Enfield is working on at least two new 650cc engines. One of these will be a cruiser, probably called the Super Meteor 650. The second model is a classic style 650cc motorcycle, probably Shotgun 650. Both bikes will use the same engine as Continental GT and Interceptor ones. The launch is expected later this year.
