A parallel twin with classic character.

From its peashooter exhaust to 18-inch wire-spoke wheels, the 2020 Royal Enfield INT650 provides classic character in an approachable standard motorcycle. While the marketing material shows this bike riding along the California coast—hinting at the target audience of youthful road trip warriors—the plucky 648cc parallel twin can fit in anywhere the daily grind may take you: country back roads, urban sprawl, or freeway stretches. Features like the assist and slipper clutch and ABS (front and rear) aid newer riders, but the parallel twin and two-piston floating ByBre caliper can provide reasonable power and stopping power for more experienced riders.
