Price hikes have been prevalent on the BS6 two-wheelers from almost all manufacturers since April this year to offset the additional costs incurred for the updated technology and now all the services offered during the lockdown. Royal Enfield though has not stated a specific reason for increasing prices on its offerings this time. Both bikes do not get any feature upgrades either with the hike.

The Interceptor 650 differentiates itself with the modern-classic design, single-piece braced handlebar and a bench seat, all of which make for an upright riding posture. The retro design also makes it quite the canvas for personalisation.
