Get Ready to Saddle Up
Royal Enfield has two new and very cool models coming, the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. Both are extremely similar bikes. They use the same platform and engine, which is a 648 parallel-twin engine. They have a different aesthetic, though. To help people get excited about the new motorcycles, the company will host several different events at dealerships across the country.
This bike is an important one for the company. It’s a little larger and brings back the twin to Royal Enfields lineup. I think these things look great and could sell well if Royal Enfield can reach its target market. While the bikes will, of course, be sold in Indian and European markets they will also come to the U.S. and Canada. That’s were the dealer events come into play.
The events will help introduce people to the bike. Each event will have live music, food, and giveaways, but the big and important news is that you’ll have a chance to ride these new motorcycles.
