Royal Enfield launched the all-new 650 Twins in the Indian market last year, and both of them have become quite popular in the market. Last month, Royal Enfield sold over 1,000 units of the Interceptor and the Continental GT 650 last month the sales are only expected to grow with time. Here is a beautiful looking Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 in five different colours and the chrome colour, which is officially known as the ‘Mister Clean’ is also the most expensive colour in the range. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 carries a base price of Rs. 2.49 lakh but the Mister Clean Chrome version of the bike is priced at Rs. 2.69 lakh, ex-showroom. Here is a video by Dino’s Vault that shows the timeless paint scheme on the bike.
It should be noted that the chrome painted Continental GT does not get any extra features. It looks exactly the same as the base variant of the bike, get similar features and is powered by the same engine. So the extra Rs. 20,000 is only for the paint job of the bike, and it really makes it exquisite!
The chrome paint finish is only on the fuel tank of the bike. In the middle of the tank, it gets a thick and wide stripe that saves the fuel tank from getting scratches from the belt buckle or anything abrasion. The chrome paint on the fuel tank looks like mirror finish on the bike. It looks extremely good and unique. It will attract a lot of attention on the road and even in the parking, which means the owner will have to park it at a safe place. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 in chrome is a unique paint finish, and none of the bikes in India offers the same paint job except for the Interceptor 650. To take care of such an exquisite paint job, the owner will have to surely spend a lot of time and effort. Just because it is mirror-finish, it will catch a lot of smudges easily. And if the tank gets a dent or gets involved in an accident, a lot will be needed to get it fixed.
Other colours that are available on the Continental GT are Black Magic, Ventura Blue, Grey an Black and Ice Queen White. Even the Ventura Blue colour carries the same price tag as the Chrome version. The Black Magic version is the most affordable in the line-up while the Mayhem Grey & Black and Ice Queen White are priced at Rs. 2.56 lakh, ex-showroom.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor and the Continental GT 650 are powered by the same 647cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled engine. It generates a maximum power of 47 Bhp and a peak torque of 52 Nm. The bike gets mated to a six-speed transmission and receives a slipper clutch as standard. Both the models also get disc brakes on both the wheels and dual-channel ABS as standard.
