Royal Enfield UK dealer Millenium Motorcycles has opened the bookings for the Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 for 2018.
The booking amount stands at GBP 100, and the dealer estimates the price to be around GBP 6,000, which is GBP 801 more expensive than the OTR (On The Road) price of the Royal Enfield Continental GT. Orange Crush, Ravishing Red and Silver Spectre are the colours available in the country. The dealer also offers low rate finance and nationwide delivery.
Royal Enfield CEO Siddhartha Lal confirmed that the bikes will enter the European market first in April 2018, and then the Indian market when the brand is ready to take on the local demand. With the Royal Enfield 650 Twins, the company also aims to strengthen its presence in the ASEAN and Latin American markets. The 650 Twins made their global debut at the 2017 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.
