Royal Enfield has revealed the complete price list for the official accessories of both, the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. Like the motorcycles themselves, the prices are very competitive and range between Rs 600 (handlebar brace pad) and go up to Rs 6,000 (soft pannier pair). The prices include the labour cost for fitting the parts.
For reference of what these accessories might look like, here is a spy image of Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 testing a few months ago with a number of accessories installed. The Continental GT 650 seen in the image is equipped with the short flyscreen (Rs 1,500), large engine guard in black (Rs 2,900), fork gaiter kit (Rs 850) and pannier mounting kit (Rs 1,600). Royal Enfield is also offering other accessories for the Continental GT 650, like a single-seat cowl in multiple colours (Rs 2,500), a single seat (Rs 3,200), heel guards coloured in black (Rs 1,200) and compact engine guards (Rs 2,600 for it in black and Rs 2,900 for it finished in chrome).
There is also a taller flyscreen available, priced at Rs 1,700. An aluminium sump-guard will cost Rs 1,850, while a set of soft panniers will set you back by Rs 6,000. Meanwhile, a single soft pannier (right-hand side) will cost Rs 4,000. Royal Enfield is also offering some of its components like the oil-filler cap (Rs 775), brake-reservoir cap (Rs 675) and bar ends (Rs 1,100) in a machined finish.
Most of the accessories and the costs remain universal across the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. Like the Continental GT, the Interceptor 650 can also be installed with a large engine guard, compact engine guard, either short or tall flyscreen, aluminium sump-guard, fork gaiters, panniers and pannier mounts and a handlebar brace pad.

BMW Motorrad India are running a year-end scheme on their G 310 R and G 310 GS models in the form of three benefits – cash discounts, free insurance and reduced interest rates on their financing options.
For the duration of the offer, the bikes are available starting at an on-road price of Rs 3.39 lakh for the G 310 R and Rs 3.93 lakh for the G 310 GS in Delhi. However, the ex-showroom prices of the bikes remain the same, starting at Rs 2.99 lakh for the naked G 310 R, and Rs 3.49 lakh for the adventure-oriented G 310 GS.
We called a number of dealers across the country and they informed us that customers can save upto Rs 40,000 – free insurance worth close to Rs 15,000 and cash discounts of up to Rs 25,000. The brand has also brought down the Rate of Interest (ROI) on these bikes to 3.10 percent, with some dealers having slightly higher ROI, depending on the duration of the loan. This is a significant reduction from the standard loans which vary between 14-18 percent from dealer to dealer.
While the free insurance is being offered pan India, some dealers are offering either the cash discount or the reduced interest rate in addition to it. The few that are offering all three benefits claim savings of up to Rs 70,000 – which will be the product of saving on EMI.
The G 310 range is the first product from the TVS-BMW collaboration in India and both bikes are powered by the same liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 313cc engine that produces 34hp at 9,500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. Both bikes use 6-speed gearboxes.
The offer is valid until December 31, 2018, or until stocks last.
