MILWAUKEE (April 18, 2019) — Royal Enfield, the leader in the global middleweight motorcycle segment, will begin shipping the highly anticipated and all-new INT 650 and Continental GT 650 Twins this month to all U.S. and Canadian dealers. The MSRP for the Twins starts at $5,799 and includes standard ABS, a three-year unlimited-mile warranty and roadside assistance.
The first twin-cylinder motorcycles to be produced by Royal Enfield since 1970 — the motorcycles are the first created for the global market leveraging Royal Enfield’s world-class product development and manufacturing capabilities — are built for real-world riding with sufficient power to navigate city traffic or cruise effortlessly on the open road. The offerings will inspire confidence in new riders and satisfy the performance expectations of experienced riders.
Reminiscent of the street-scrambler-style motorcycle that emerged in California in the ’60s with a teardrop tank, dual seat and high, braced handlebars for a comfortable and commanding riding position. Starting MSRP $5,799 (U.S. pricing)
