The fact that Royal Enfield chose Ceat over a globally acclaimed tyre brand for the Interceptor, is a testimony of quality of our products and strength of this partnership. This launch also marks our entry into Premium Cruiser 650+ cc and reiterates our commitment to be the preferred choice for OEM’s in India.”
