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.
