Royal Enfield Celebrates 120 Years with Limited Edition Anniversary Bikes

The world’s ‘oldest motorcycle company in continuous production’ is celebrating her 120th anniversary – and with Royal Enfield’s birthday bash comes a limited run of her 650 twin range. 

If you recall, RE debuted these beauties at last year’s iteration of EICMA. Now that the bikes have touched ground, CycleWorld, tells us that the brand’s festivities will include strict limitations on the range for each country – and they’re not playing games.

“Only 60 models will be produced for America, 30 each of the Continental GT 650 and INT650 models,” states the report. 

“Both models will be painted black with chrome trim and be given die-cast brass tank badges…with only 480 units available worldwide.”

As for the special treatment these bikes are receiving from the brand…let’s just say RE’s not going halfsies. 

First off, these machines will be handcrafted with brass badges – a first-ever collaboration created with multigenerational artisans from the temple town of Kumbakonam.

Add to this the first-ever blacked-out element stying (to complement the black and chrome tanks), the hand-painted pinstripes, specialty serial numeration on each unit, and the obligatory anniversary decals, and you’ve got yourself one specialty bike.

Both the Continental GTs and INT 650s will come with fly screens, engine guards, heel guards, and bar-end mirrors – everything to complement one of the longest motorcycle warranties available on a new bike in our current industry.
