Royal Enfield's 650 Twins, which include the Interceptor and Continental GT 650, are among the company's most popular models. In fact, it was these two motorcycles that catapulted the once-obscure Indian firm into global prominence. To the pleasure of the budget-conscious classic motorcycle crowd, the 650 Twins delivered unrivaled value for money with a sturdy platform and timeless throwback appearance.

To mark its 120th anniversary, Royal Enfield announced special edition models of the 650 Twins at EICMA 2021. Both the Interceptor and the Continental GT 650 had sleek and elegant paint schemes that included black with gold trim, blacked-out engine components, and distinctive visual add-ons. There will be only 480 of these bikes made in total, and they're all intended to be shared throughout Europe, America, and Southeast Asia.

The Royal Enfield 650 Twins 120th Anniversary Edition is distinguished by a number of visual upgrades. They have an all-black theme with gold accents on various parts. There's a brass tank badge, gold-painted pinstripes, and a 120th Anniversary logo on the fuel tank, which is plated in Royal Enfield's striking 'Black Chrome.' In addition, Royal Enfield has introduced features such as a fly screen, an engine guard, heel protectors, and bar-end side mirrors, which are otherwise optional on the standard versions.

Aside from the visual upgrades, the bikes' engines and mechanical components remain unchanged. As a result, they remain powered by a 648cc parallel-twin engine that is air-cooled and fuel-injected. They have a 270-degree crankshaft and provide the tone and attributes of a V-twin motor, which fits the two bikes' laid-back personalities well. The engine produces 47 horsepower and 38 ft-lbs of torque. Conventional telescopic front forks and a set of preload-adjustable dampers at the back support the bike, while disc brakes with dual-channel ABS bring it confidently to a halt.

Lucky for us, Royal Enfield has officially launched these special edition models in the Asia Pacific region, the Philippines included. A total of 120 units will be allocated to the region, of course, on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are keen on getting one of these limited edition machines, you’ll have to get in contact with your nearest Royal Enfield dealer, as pricing and availability in the Philippines has yet to be revealed.
