Royal Enfield starts deliveries of its 120th-anniversary edition 650-twin motorcycles. Celebrating 120 glorious years of the brand, the special edition Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 were previously showcased at EICMA 2021. Just 480 units of these were ever made, distributed among India, Europe, the Americas, and South-East Asia markets, 120 units each. These were listed for a flash sale in December last year.
