A factory custom version of the Royal Enfield 650cc twins, namely, the Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 have just now been emerged in the market, before the global launch of the two. The bike is named LockStock and is going to make a debut appearance at Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in London.
“The LockStock is a performance powerhouse made to take on the drag strip, burn some serious rubber and create a lot of noise,” is the official statement issued by the Royal Enfield. Chassis, seat design, handlebar and headlamps have been redesigned. The engine and fuel tank are same as that of the Continental GT 650, other than that it doesn’t take sny designing or engineering cues from the 650 cc twins. It is a single seated bike with drop handlebars. It is expected to be a high potential bike, and Royal Enfield might not sell it and keep it as its personal collection. The top speed of the bike is around 300 kmph. A new 650cc, twin cylinder, oil cooled engine offering 47 bhp power at 7,100 rpm and 52 Nm torque at 4,000rpm will be the running factor of the 650 twins. A 6 speed gearbox is also offered with the engine. A nitrox oxide cylinder is also placed behind the engine. The compression ratio is 9.5:1, which is quite reasonable. The Harley Davidson 750 is a potential rival of the LockStock. The 6 spoke alloy wheel dimension and the wheelbase dimension are more than that of a normal bike. The bike doesn’t have a rear suspension. An underbelly unit houses the exhaust which is integrated with the exhaust pan.
The 650 twins are manufactured in a plant in Chennai. The Australian continent have already received them. AUD 10,000 (INR 5 lakhs) and AUD 10,400 (INR 5.24 lakhs) are the prices of the Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 respectively.
