Features and Specifications

The Classic 650 is expected to come with an LED headlight, bulb indicators, and a dual-pod console1. Its hardware comprises telescopic front forks, dual rear springs, a single disc at both ends, and dual-channel ABS. These are mounted on spoke wheels wrapped in road-biased tyres.

The Royal Enfield Classic 650 is expected to launch in June 2024. The asking price could be around INR 3.25 to 3.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Classic 650 will be positioned between the Interceptor and the Continental GT.
