Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, Continental GT Receives Software Update
The software updated should iron out issues like engine stalling at higher altitudes
- This software update will be pre-installed on bikes manufactured after June.
- Customers can get the updates installed at authorised RE service centres across India for free.
- The updates should improve fuel efficiency as well.
Recently, few Royal Enfield 650 twins owners reported that they faced stalling issues while riding the bike in high-altitude regions. And the brand has been quick to respond by offering to update the software on the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650, which should improve fuel efficiency as well as iron out the stalling problem.
This software update will be pre-installed on bikes manufactured after June. However, if you own an older model, you can visit any authorised Royal Enfield dealership to get the update installed for free.
This is not the first time when a bike maker is offering software updates to resolve issues on its motorcycle. A few months back, TVS had done the same by updating the ECU of the Apache RR 310. However, unlike in the case of the 650 twins, the updates extended beyond just the software, including a softer roller, rubber piping around the windscreen and more.
Powering the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT is an all-new 648cc, air-cooled, parallel-twin motor which pumps out 47PS of power and 52Nm of torque. This motor is paired to a six-speed transmission. While the Interceptor 650 starts at Rs 2.5 lakh, prices for the Continental GT start from Rs 2.65 lakh (both prices ex-showroom Delhi)
