Royal Enfield 650 Twins will now come shod with new Ceat Zoom Cruze tyres instead of the previously found Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres which were an import from Brazil. Goes without saying, the tyre sizes haven't been altered and it remains the same as before - 100/90-18 for the front and 130/70-18 for the rear.

Also, goes without saying, this may also be an indirect result of the restricted imports of tyres from foreign markets in a bid to encourage local manufacturing.

While the new Ceat Zoom Cruze tyres cost significantly less in comparison to the Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp, the Chennai-based automaker hasn't reduced the price of the motorcycles. On the flipside, the bikes have received a recent price hike. (Know more here)
