Both Twins are designed to be a modern interpretation of their 60’s predecessors of the same names. Adorn your Interceptor or Continental 650 with a set of our handlebar grip wraps finished in leather to conjure more of the 60’s vibe into your motorcycle. It is designed to considerably reduce handlebar vibrations while giving the motorcycle a classy vintage feel. It also improves grip especially while wearing gloves. The grips were a favourite among the previous gen Continental 535 GT owners. Check out our collection of grips on our website:
One of the biggest outcries against the new sweethearts will be that owing to the lack of storage. Grab our retro looking tank pouch to go pockets free so that you can enjoy the easy life without the tension of losing anything. It is handmade for the modern adventurer who prefers the charm and build quality of the good old days using the finest leather which ages beautifully as you clock up the miles.
Take your new RE Twin for a long journey by accessorizing them with saddlebags to gobble up your stuff. Again, with both being reincarnations of 60’s classics, the best way forward will be to slap on some of our retro looking leather hybrid saddlebags. It is designed to be easily mounted on and off the motorcycle in a matter of seconds. Carry it with you when you are not riding by slipping it over your shoulder. One can opt for either one or two depending on the rider’s discretion and carrying needs. Here is it on a Triumph Bonneville for good reference :
The biggest blunder that one can commit is to throw ugly black saddlebags over one's beautiful motorcycle.
Because your bike deserves the best. Carry your new RE Twin keys in style with our braided keychain. The leather braid accessory has been hand finished to perfection and is intended to tether the key securely to your body while looking cool doing it. Channel some serious James Dean vibe by adding this to your outfit while gearing up for a ride on your new Royal Enfield Twin.
Having gone this far, it is safe to say that leather is indeed the best way forward. And if you are into your leathers, you would want nothing to happen to your favourite pair of shoes. Opt our stylish shoe protectors to keep your shoes as good as new while caning your new Royal Enfield Twin on your favourite stretch of tarmac.
Now here are some accessories for the new Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Contiental Gt 650 Twins that we would love to see hitting the shelves :
The biggest gripe against Royal Enfield after their launch was the fact that the optional S&S exhausts are not homologated for India. This means that there are no aftermarket exhausts readily available for the bikes. The best way to make your new Royal Enfield Twin stand-out is to unleash the full grunt of the twin exhausts.

This applies mainly to the Continental GT 650 Twin and will ensure that eyes turn every time you pass those adoring onlookers. This simple addition will give a whole new appeal to your new bike and will definitely ensure that it stands out from the rest of the lot. This will also be a throwback to the 60’s when Café Racers were the vogue and fairings were the way to go. JD customs offers a mean looking front fairing for the previous Continental 535 GT and we sure hope that they come out with one for the new bike.
