It is 120 years this month since Royal Enfield presented their first motorcycle at the Stanley Motorcycle Show in London. To commemorate that impressive milestone the company are producing a very limited number of 120th anniversary 650 twins.
There will be a total of 480 bike available globally, 240 Interceptors and 240 Continentals. The bikes have black chrome tanks, pinstriped by hand and adorned with these lovely brass tank badges.
Royal Enfield say, 'The exquisite brass badges are crafted in collaboration with the Sirpi Senthil family, 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.'
Also, '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.'
