Royal Enfield 120-year special edition 650 Twins: What are the changes?
The limited-edition motorcycles are designed in collaboration among Royal Enfield’s teams in the UK and India. Both the motorcycles get the same changes that set them apart from their standard variants respectively.
The highlight is definitely the die-cast, handcrafted badges. These exquisite brass monikers are handmade by the Sirpi Senthil family, who belong to the generational artists’ family from the temple town of Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu.
Starting with the colour, both Continental GT and Interceptor get a black-chrome colour scheme that has been specially developed by Royal Enfield using chroming technology at the manufacturer’s Chennai plant.
Apart from the black-chrome on the body, the Continental 650 and Interceptor also get blacked-out components. The engine, exhaust pipes, handlebar, and all other chrome parts are now painted in black as well.
