The Interceptor and the Continental GT, powered by the 650 Twin. Heritage-inspired machines that carry the Royal Enfield legacy and character into the 21st century.
A single-piece forged crank with 270 degree firing order was developed for the way the engine ‘feels’ when making its power. An old school-inspired engine with high character, it delivers power smoothly. The slightly off-beat feel of a 270 degree crank engine makes it feel truly special and keeps a broad spread of torque at your disposal throughout the rev range. The highly precise Bosch fuel injection system ensures smooth, accessible power that is available from the moment the throttle is opened.
The new Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental GT 535, which in turn, was an evolution of the Continental GT 250 – the original Royal Enfield British café racer. Powered by the all-new 650 Twin, it looks every bit like its predecessor and performs even better.

Retaining the classic horizontal split running right through, the motorcycle’s engine is elegantly cut off from the new bodywork with a dual cradle frame. The distinctive sculpted tank, clip-on handlebars and classic-styled instruments give the motorcycle’s cockpit an authentic café racer vibe. Rear-set footrests and upswept exhausts allow for better lean angles – a café racer requisite for pulling off ton-ups. Just like in '60s London.
It takes more than good looks to carve through a corner. The design and development team applied its many years of accumulated know-how while setting key parameters like steering rake, ground clearance, and lean angle, to create the perfect ride for this sports inspired café-racer. The Continental GT is a motorcycle that delights in the way it handles on the road, responding to the rider's desires by feeling focused and integral while offering light and agile handling, allowing anyone to enjoy it.
