Royal Enfield has officially announced that its top-of-the-line 650 cc models – the Interceptor 650 and the Cotinental GT 650, will get costlier by close to 2 percent from September 1, 2019. This price increase is being implemented to accommodate increased cost of material procurement and other sub-heads that have hiked the cost of goods sold (COGS) for the manufacturer.The aforementioned price increase of 2 percent will result in a hike of Rs. 5,012 on the base colour schemes of the RE Interceptor 650. The Interceptor is currently priced at Rs. 2.50 lakh. Meanwhile, the expensive colour scheme model, that retails at Rs. 2.70 lakh, will get a price hike of Rs. 5,400. Meanwhile, the base colour variant of the Continental GT 650 will receive a hike of Rs. 5,312 on its current tag of Rs. 2.65 lakh. The highest price increase of Rs. 5,700 will be applied to the most expensive 650 cc bike in RE’s portfolio, that is pegged at Rs. 2.85 lakh.
Despite the said price increases, the RE 650 twins will continue to be the most affordable twin-cylinder motorcycles to be available on sale in India. They are powered by a 648 cc, parallel-twin engine that is capable of exhaling 47hp at 7,250rpm and 52Nm at 5,250rpm. Thanks to the tremendous value for money offered by the Interceptor 650 and Continental 650, they are currently the most popular motorcycles in the Indian market.
