2020 Royal Enfield Continental 650 GT being upgraded to BS-VI.
Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 GT also in the pipeline for BS-VI upgrade.
BS-VI emissions norms kick in from April 1, 2020, across the country.
Royal Enfield, identical to every other automaker in the country, is working extensively to upgrade its existing portfolio of motorcycles to comply with BS-VI emission norms. The Continental GT 650 Facelift has been spotted doing the rounds on the Indian roads. Although, the test mules have been spied earlier also on a couple of occasions, hinting towards the new-gen Classic and Thunderbird.
Looking at the spy images, it can be easily made that the Continental GT 650 hasn’t gone under the hammer completely. The other mules spotted testing were boasting of substantial updates. It can be understood that Royal Enfield 650 duo is based on the company’s modern architecture and hence, they are being considered for a BS-VI switch. The only big surprise that the spy shots bring to the table is the addition of a new exhaust pipe and a cowl cover. Though, the cowl cover on the pillion seat could be offered as an aftermarket accessory. Besides these couple of new elements, there is no other noticeable change in the spied test mule of Continental GT 650.
