Royal Enfield will release new colour options and accessories for its top selling Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 twin-cylinder models in the third quarter of this year.
A spokesperson from Royal Enfield’s local distributor told INFO MOTO that it expects the first shipment of the 2021 line-up to land in showrooms sometime around August-September.
Pricing for the 2021 range has yet to be confirmed, however, base prices are unlikely to stray far from the current offering of $9990 rideaway for the Interceptor 650 Classic, and $10,190 for the Continental GT 650 Classic.
Overseas markets have already seen the launch of five new colour schemes for each of the models, as well as new accessory options including seats, touring mirrors, screens and sump guards, among other dealer-fitted upgrades.
The Interceptor 650, which is the more upright of the ‘650 Twins’, is expected to launch in new single-tone Canyon Red and Ventura Blue paint, alongside fresh two-tone Downtown Drag, Sunset Strip and Chrome.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 also debuts blacked-out wheels and mudguards on the base single-tone variants.
For the cafe-racer-style Continental GT 650, new paint options will include Dux Deluxe, Ventura Storm, Mister Clean, Rocker Red and British Racing Green.
As before, the Royal Enfield 650 twins are exclusively motivated by a 648cc air-cooled parallel-twin that produces 35kW and 52Nm.
Later this year, Royal Enfield will also release an updated version of its Himalayan adventure bike that receives two new colour schemes, Pine Green and Mirage Silver, as well as the standard inclusion of a Tripper navigation system.
