However, these prices will differ from city to city. From its launch in November, the Royal Enfield 650 Twins had been selling at the very price they were introduced. This is the first time the 650 Twins are seeing an increment in price and it is not the last time either. The motorcycles will see another price hike when the engines are updated for the BS-VI emission norms.

Now with this price hike, the motorcycles have become more expensive than the KTM Duke 390 but its still the most affordable mid-displacement motorcycle you can buy in the country. And well enough, both these motorcycles have been getting Royal Enfield great numbers. The 650 twins are still seeing a waiting period of 3-4 months in some variants and if you still haven’t got one of these for yourself but are planning, we suggest you do it rather soon.
