Due to overwhelming interest and inquires on these 2 new beauties since recently being announced and displayed at the Sydney Motorcycle Show, we are now taking deposits on the new 650 twins. So if you are keen and considering one of these, now is the time to move. Only catch is they won't be available until around May 2018, but at least you can secure one early. For any further details CALL Motociclo now.

This weekend (25/26th Nov) hosts the biannual Sydney Motorcycle Show at Darling Harbour. No doubt one of the most exciting bikes at this years event is the unveiling of the new stunning Royal Enfield 650cc TWINS. In the 'Interceptor' and more sporty 'Continental GT' configuration, these bikes have been a long time coming, and now finally here, ready for the 2018 release.
Paying true homage to their historic namesake, these new releases from the Royal Enfield factory show the commitment to respecting and appreciating the marques authentic and beautiful heritage. Still officially the world oldest motorcycle company in continuous production. Stay tuned for further news on 2018 release dates and availability at MOTOCICLO.
Make sure you drop into the Royal Enfield stand and say Hi to Nicole..

More about the bikes..
At the heart of the new bikes is an all-new air-/oil-cooled 648cc SOHC parallel twin engine. Claimed output is 47 horsepower at 7100 rpm from a classically-styled engine in a deliberately mild state of tune.

The goal, Royal Enfield says, is to make the bike very tractable and easy to ride by making the bike’s 38 ft/lbs torque available at a mere 4000 rpm. The engine’s short stroke (2.66 inches) sets it up to spin up the engine speed quickly. So, along with the tractability goal, the six-speed transmission should allow using the bike’s peak horsepower in short order.

The engine is fed via electronic fuel injection, but unlike some manufacturers, Royal Enfield made no attempt to make the throttle bodies resemble good ol’ carburetors.

In true classic bike authenticity, to complement the sound as well as the aesthetics of the bike, the engine features a 270° crankshaft to give the exhaust note the 'ol British rumble, quite popular with classic bike aficionados.

Royal Enfield CEO Siddhartha Lal says the 650 twin has been “an absolute dream for years, maybe even over a decade.” That tidbit of information indicates how deliberative the company has been in the creation of the first twin-cylinder motorcycle engines to bear the Royal Enfield name in nearly five decades.
