Of the six beautiful colours on sale, let’s see which one’s for whom

We finally have the updated Royal Enfield 650 twins in India. While we’ve already explained the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650’s colours for you, let’s talk about its cafe racer brother now. The Continental GT 650 can be had in a total of six colours which come at four different prices. Confused? Fret not. Let’s see which ones are new, which ones are old, and then you can decide for yourself which one to splurge your hard-earned money on: 

Older Colours (Spoke Wheels)

Spoke wheels indeed enhance this retro racer’s already stunning appearance; and if you want to retain the authentic retro look, you’ve four colours to choose from and here’s how much each will cost you: 

Continental GT 650 Variant

Price (ex-showroom India)

Rocker Red/British Racing Green

Rs 3,19,000 (Rs 13,376 more than before)

Dux Deluxe

Rs 3,29,000 (Rs 14,962 more than before)

Mr. Clean

Rs 3,45,000 (Rs 13,432 more than before)

The Rocker Red and British Racing Green colourways look bright and eye-catching. The latter, especially, will make you look like a racer from the 60s.

But we can’t possibly talk about attention-grabbing paint jobs and not talk about the Mr. Clean trim eh? The boys at BikeDekho were swooning over it when it came to our office, because of the perfect blend of black and gold to complement the shiny chrome finish. That said, this mister will demand a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care) too. 

Those looking for something more subtle would prefer the Dux Deluxe, though. The combination of white and black with gold pinstriping and highlights on the tank logo look pleasing to the eye. 

New Colours (Alloy Wheels)

If you want a touch of modernity (and practicality) to your cafe racer with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres, Royal Enfield has two options for you, both priced at Rs 3,39,000 (ex-showroom India). The Slipstream Blue is the more eye-catching of the two. The blue graphics on the all-black tank look stunning. But what’s a bit of a miss is the rather simple alloy design. The bike would’ve looked absolutely perfect had the alloys’ design been a bit more modern.

Apex Grey is for the ones who find the Slipstream Blue a bit too loud. The grey tank looks elegant and neat. What works for the alloy-wheeled bikes is the blacked-out treatment to the engine and the exhausts which in our opinion looks drop-dead gorgeous. The 2023 models come with a revised rotary-styled switchgear, USB charging port on the left switchgear and an LED headlight.
