One of the reasons why the Royal Enfield 650 twins are such a craze right now is because of their mouth-watering starting price of just Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). However, after almost eight months since their launch, our sources suggest that Royal Enfield is set to increase the price of both motorcycles by Rs 10,000 from August 16.
As of now, the company hasn’t revealed the specific reason behind the price hike. However, both the motorcycles will still remain the most affordable 650cc motorcycles available in India even after the hike. While the Interceptor 650 will now be priced from Rs 2.6 lakh to Rs 2.8 lakh, the Continental GT 650 will retail from Rs 2.75 lakh to Rs 2.95 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). Additionally, the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 are still selling like hot cakes as the waiting period for both motorcycles still hovers around two-four months in major cities.
In other news, the Chennai-based bike maker has launched new vibrant paint options for the Bullet 350 and the Bullet 350 ES which are around Rs 9,000 more affordable than the previous models. Quite a shocker, right? Here’s why the new variants are cheaper than before.
