Royal Enfield plans to offer the Tripper navigation pod as an optional accessory for the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 motorcycles. The cost is expected to be around Rs 5,000, and the pod will be placed between the twin-pod instruments.
Additionally, LED indicators are also likely to be offered. This is good news for riders who want a bike navigation system, as the Tripper pod has received positive reviews for its functionality and ease of use.
Adding LED indicators as optional extras on the Interceptor and Continental GT 650 is a welcome upgrade, as LED indicators offer better visibility and reliability than traditional bulb-based indicators.
Royal Enfield is going with current trends and allows customers to customize and personalize their motorcycles according to their preferences.
No impact on other instrumentation
The “Tripper” is a specific feature or piece of equipment that can be added to a vehicle’s instrumentation. The statement suggests that adding the Tripper will not impact the other instrumentation components but will be integrated alongside.
Specifically, the twin-pod speedometer and tachometer setup will remain intact, with the Tripper between them.
While the design may be less cohesive, there is a common theme of circular pods with chrome rims. This design choice intentionally created a sense of continuity and unity among the instrumentation components.
Can we retrofit the Tripper pod? Is still a question
It may be possible to retrofit the Tripper pod onto earlier Interceptors and Continentals.
However, based on experience with similar situations, it is likely that the manufacturer will release a statement or provide instructions on whether or not retrofitting the Tripper pod onto earlier models is possible. This may depend on compatibility, technical feasibility, and cost-effectiveness.
If you want to retrofit the Tripper pod onto the model, I recommend checking with the manufacturer or a certified dealer for more information. They will have the most up-to-date information and can advise you on the best course of action.
