Royal Enfield 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins' delivery begins
Royal Enfield had unveiled the 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins back in November 2021. The automaker has now commenced the deliveries of the special edition Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. The first recipients of the bikes are Rear Admiral Philipose G Pynumootil and Olympian Gagan Narang. The company has allotted a total of 120 units of the bikes for the Indian market.
Why does this story matter?
Royal Enfield has a unique history that many other automakers cannot claim. Therefore, it was fitting that the company launched the 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins to mark a special occasion. Designed and handcrafted by Royal Enfield's team from UK and India, they are a pure depiction of the brand's legacy. It wasn't surprising that they were sold out within two minutes.
The bikes have a die-cast brass badge on the tank
Royal Enfield 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins sit on a tubular frame and feature a black-chrome color scheme, a brown rider-only saddle, a black fuel tank with a die-cast brass badge, hand-painted pinstripes, and an all-black finish on the engine. Each bike has a unique serial number on the tank. The special tourers also have rounded headlights, engine guards, heel guards, and circular mirrors.
A 47hp, 648cc engine powers the Twins
The Royal Enfield 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins are fueled by a 648cc, parallel-twin engine that churns out 47hp of maximum power at 7,150rpm and 52Nm of peak torque at 5,250rpm. The motor comes linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
They have dual-channel ABS for safety
For rider's safety, the Royal Enfield 120th Anniversary Limited Edition Twins are equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling while applying the brakes. The suspension duties are taken care of by a 41mm fork on the front side and twin coil-over shocks on the rear end.
