New 2018 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 Expected India Launch Date

Just like the Interceptor INT 650, the Continental GT will first arrive in the European market. Royal Enfield officials remained tight-lipped about any details of India launch.

New 2018 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 Design and Styling

The motorcycle has an front-leaning stance that gives it a sporty look and a speedy form. The Continental GT 650’s ergonomics are designed to offer easy reach to the mid-level handlebars without compromising to its 12.5L fuel tank capacity. Like the Interceptor INT 650, the Continental GT 650 sports disc brakes at the front and the rear with ABS. The upswept exhaust and rear-set footrests are claimed to give the motorcycle plenty of lean angle. The single seat (optional), sculpted tank, and clip on bars complete the authentic look.

Both the Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor INT 650 will be available in variety of colourways and two distinct styles – Standard and Retro Custom. While the Standard range of colourways take inspiration from the motorcycles of the 50’s and 60’s, the Retro Custom range is a bolder version of graphics and colours. Buyers can select from three colour options — Ice Queen, Sea Nymph, Black Magic.
