Royal Enfield is evidently competing against KTM and BMW in terms of twin-cylinder motorbikes in India. In comparison to KTM 390 and BMW 310R and G310GS, Interceptor and Continental are considerably cheaper.

The Interceptor 650 is priced at ₹2.50 lakh and the Continental GT 650 at ₹2.65 lakh against KTM Duke 390 (₹2.43 lakh), BMW G310 R (₹3.09 lakh) and the BMW G310 GS (₹3.59 lakh). All prices are ex-showroom prices.

The motorbikes are prices lesser in the state of Kerala (₹2.49 lakh) and Karnataka (₹2.34 lakh) due to high taxation.
