Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Twin – now in New Blacked Out ‘Dark’ colourways
Along with the classically-styled variants that were inspired by its iconic namesake from the 1960s, this new version of the ‘Dark’ Interceptor 650 ( also available in the Continental GT 650 Blacked Out 2 colourways ) moves the styling forward by a decade, into the 1970s. Built with a perfect balance of style and performance, it’s a modern classic that retains the essence and appearance of an authentic British roadster, but with a splash of sun-soaked California.
The all-new, all-black Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 features a blacked-out engine and exhaust that unite the aesthetics of both the motorcycle, seamlessly fusing with its chassis and keeping the spotlight on the updated tanks for a look that is guaranteed to make hearts race and heads turn.
Updated features include:
Blacked Out Exhaust & Engine
Cast Alloy Wheels
Premium Switch Cubes
The 650 Twin range is the rebirth of Royal Enfield’s legendary parallel twin-cylinder engine. And it’s driving two Royal Enfield classic motorcycles – the Interceptor and the Continental GT. While classically styled and visually beautiful, the new engine is Royal Enfield’s most forward-looking yet, with a cleaner, elegant look, fewer components, less weight and easier maintenance.
Powered by the air-oil cooled parallel 650 Twin, the Interceptor is a trove of ’60s design staples with its 7? headlight, twin clock front and quilted twin seat. The narrow teardrop tank is slapped with a classic badge and topped with a Monza-style fuel cap. A dual cradle frame with a rear loop makes up the core, by way of a nod to the original Interceptor.
Easy Come, Easy Go.
Sit back, breathe in, breeze away. The Interceptor exudes a versatile, laid-back attitude with its upright riding position. And its suspension is developed for precise, immediate handling while staying agile and light. Fun, under your control.
The Twin is in

The Parallel with no parallel.
Of course, the 650 Twin is notable not only for its character, but also for its sound. Developing the right tone and burble from its twin silencers was an important goal during the engine’s creation. Whether at idle or at full chat, during over-run or while winding on the power, the exhaust note just oozes individuality.
Engineered for fun.
Beauty is often overlooked in chassis design. But this new frame blends the authentic form of period classics with the superb handling and ride of modern engineering. The result is a chassis that’s nimble and precise, making for a pure and enjoyable ride. Whether on the Interceptor, or the Continental GT.
Easy like Sunday morning.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor* 2018 marks the return of one of Royal Enfield’s most loved classic motorcycles. Hailing from a time when all that mattered was that the California sun was out and the surf was up, the new Interceptor retains every bit of charm that made it a legend.
