Royal Enfield Interceptor and GT 650 Sales have crossed over 11,000 units since the launch in November 2018, making them the best-selling in their segment.

The most powerful motorcycles from Royal Enfield are also one of the most popular ones in India right now. The Royal Enfield Interceptor and Continental GT 650 have achieved over 11,000 units in just 8 months of its launch in India.

The Interceptor starts off at Rs 2.5 Lakhs and goes up to Rs 2.7 Lakhs, whereas the GT 650 comes in a bit costlier, from Rs 2.65 Lakhs to Rs 2.85 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). Even for a premium price, it is the current best-selling motorcycle duo in its price range.

The 650 Twins go against the likes of KTM Duke 390, Honda CB300R, TVS Apache RR310, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and BMW G 310 R. For a couple of months, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and GT 650 garnered more sales than all of its rivals combined.

In the first week of its launch, the Interceptor and GT 650 garnered over 325 units of sales. The highest figure was recorded in May 2019, at 2427 units. This figure is actually better than a lot of 150-200cc main-stream motorcycles.

The most important reason for the popularity of the Twins is their powerful engine. Both use a 648cc air-cooled parallel-twin cylinder engine, that produces 47 BHP and 52 Nm of peak torque, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The power figures are a bit less for a 650cc motorcycle, but you get the torquey Royal Enfield engine. Also, you get the power of a twin-cylinder engine which helps to keep it stable at higher speeds.

Just like a typical Royal Enfield, the 650 Twins are not feature equipped. But, you get the classic retro design that attracts the millennials as well as the senior buyers. The Interceptor is a classic roadster inspired by the original 1950s Interceptor. The GT 650 is an old-school cafe racer with low-positioned clip-on handlebars and an aggressive position.

As of now, the waiting for the Royal Enfield Interceptor and GT 650 has decreased over the months. However, you still would have to wait around 4-5 months depending on the colour you choose.
