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.

While the firm has not released any official statement on the same, the switch has likely occurred due to the rising input costs which have led the automakers to introduce price hikes across the model portfolio. 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.
