Royal Enfield Marks 120th Year with Anniversary Edition Models of the Interceptor and Continental GT 650 Motorcycles
Date posted on April 15, 2022
To mark this milestone year, Royal Enfield launched the 120th Year Anniversary Edition of its popular 650 Twin motorcycles – the Interceptor INT 650 and the Continental GT 650 in Australia, Thailand, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. 120 Units of the motorcycle will be available in the Asia Pacific region.
Conceptualized and designed in celebration of Royal Enfield’s rich and storied legacy, the motorcycles present a unique opportunity for global enthusiasts to own a piece of motorcycling history with a limited production run of only 120 units in South-East Asia, comprising of 60 Continental GT 650 and 60 Interceptor INT 650.
Given the milestone and exclusivity, the 120th Year anniversary edition Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 have been designed and handcrafted by the company’s teams across the UK and India.
The unique, rich black-chrome tank colour scheme, has been developed in-house, with Royal Enfield’s industry-leading chroming technology at the company’s original 1950’s manufacturing factory in Thiruvottiyur, Chennai – India. The motorcycles are chromed with an alternate, sustainable trivalent eco- friendly process.. To complement the black chrome tanks, both the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 will feature, for the first time, completely blacked out components, with the engine, silencer and other elements in an array of black colour schemes. The motorcycles will also come equipped with a range of Genuine Motorcycle Accessories such as flyscreens, engine guards, heel guards, touring and bar end mirrors amongst others in a black disguise to compliment the overall design.
Proudly celebrating the brand’s handcrafted DNA, the 120th Year Anniversary edition motorcycles will feature a very unique, handcrafted, die-cast brass tank badge. These exquisite looking brass badges have been made in collaboration with the ‘Sirpi Senthil’ family who are multi-generational artisans from the temple town of Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu, India. Particularly specialized in making the elegant brass effigies for the most revered temples in India for centuries, this is the first time that these artisans have collaborated with any automotive brand.
Reminiscent of the brand’s legacy of passionately building handcrafted motorcycles, the 120th Year Anniversary edition Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650s will also boast of the legendary Royal Enfield hand-painted pinstripes.
To make each motorcycle even more exclusive, the tank top badge will feature the unique serial number of each motorcycle indicating that it is 1 of 60 unique motorcycles in any of the four regions mentioned around the world. Additionally, the motorcycles will also adorn a side panel decal that is a special ode to Royal Enfield’s 120 years. credit: Royal Enfield
