    The other motorcycle, the Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental 535 on sale currently. It shares all the chassis components such as the front forks, brakes and the frame with the Interceptor. However it’s styled like a café racer and gets shorted clip-on handlebars for a racier seating position and a single seat with rear cowl.

    Which brings us to the engine. The 650cc engine is smaller than the 750cc displacement we were expecting. Royal Enfield wanted to keep the engine big enough to be powerful for experienced riders, but not too powerful for those moving up from smaller machines.

    Unlike the older push-rod singles, this parallel twin is a thoroughly modern unit with four valves per cylinder. Still air-cooled, it employs oil-cooling and produces a healthy 47 bhp of power at 7,100 rpm. The maximum torque of 52 Nm arrives at a more relaxed 4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a six speed gearbox and is expected to give the motorcycles a top speed of 160 km/h.

    Here’s what the engine sounds like.
