2024 Royal Enfield Interceptor & Continental GT 650 launched in France. Check what’s new
Royal Enfield has rolled out the updated Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 in France with a host of upgrades for the 2024 model year. The 650 Twins for France now come with a new LED headlamp and switchgear borrowed from the Super Meteor 650. The bikes finally get factory-fitted alloy wheels with tubeless tyres bringing more convenience to users.
Other upgrades include a USB Type-A charging socket and a reworked saddle with additional padding for more comfort. Our readers will remember that these changes were introduced on the India-spec RE 650 Twins earlier this year. Lastly, the 2024 Royal Enfield Interceptor and Continental GT 650 get new colour options with single and dual-tone schemes. The engine and exhaust have also been blacked out for a stealthy appearance. The new colours will be available with the existing colour options, while the spoked wheels will continue to be on offer.
There’s no change to the engine block on the MY2024 Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. The bikes continue to draw power from the 648 cc twin-cylinder motor with a 270-degree firing order. The motor develops 47 bhp and 52 Nm of peak torque. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and gas-charged twin shocks at the rear while braking performance comes from a 320 mm single front disc and a 240 mm disc at the rear. Both bikes get dual-channel ABS.
