Is This What The Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 Will Be Called?
The veteran bikemaker has applied for the Interceptor Bear 650 name trademark
Craving for a new Royal Enfield bike? We know we are, and to entice us even more, the veteran bikemaker has trademarked the Interceptor Bear 650 name. Now what begs the question is, which of the upcoming 650cc bikes could be named Interceptor Bear 650.
Well, we put our money on the upcoming Scrambler 650. Until now, whatever test mules we have seen of the Scrambler 650, look like an Interceptor 650 that is ready to scramble, making the Interceptor Bear name a good fit. While it won’t be a hardcore off roader, it would still be more friendly on the broken roads compared to the stock bike.

It also gets a USD fork and dual shock absorbers (non gas charged unlike the 650 twins) and gets a new two-into-one exhaust, which should cut the excess weight compared to Interceptor 650. That said, the engine is the same parallel-twin 648cc engine, but we expect a slightly different tune to go with the scrambler style. You can head over to this story for more details on the bike.
We expect the Royal Enfield Interceptor Bear 650 to be priced around Rs 3.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Once here, it will rival the Moto Morini Seiemmezzo 6 ½.
