Depending on the colour of the bike, customers will have to wait for the next 6 months to get the delivery of the bike. Royal Enfield dispatched a lot of motorcycles for the dealership showrooms for displaying them and for the test rides. Royal Enfield is expected to dispatch motorcycles only for deliveries starting from this month. Currently, Royal Enfield is dispatching around 2,500 units per month but the production is expected to be doubled and reach a higher number soon. It should be noted that Royal Enfield is also selling both the bikes in the international markets and the made-in-India bikes are exported to various countries like Australia, Brazil, Thailand, Indonesia and the USA.
Both Royal Enfield Interceptor and the Continental GT are the most affordable 650cc motorcycles in the Indian market. They are also the most affordable parallel-twin cylinder powered bike. Royal Enfield uses a brand new, 648cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled engine that generates a maximum power of 47 Bhp at 7,100 rpm and a peak torque of 52 Nm at 4,000 rpm. Both the bikes get the 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch. Both the bikes also get disc brakes on both the wheels and ABS as standard.
Royal Enfield used an all-new P platform for the 650 Twins. There are a lot of bikes that can be launched on the same platform in the future including Royal Enfield Himalayan 650 and Classic 650. However, no new products are expected to be launched in the next two years.
