Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Expert Review
The Interceptor 650 is Royal Enfield’s first truly global product. Royal Enfield has designed the bike in a single spec that’s common for both local and markets abroad. It’s essentially a standard motorcycle with a neo-retro design theme. This combination seems to be gaining a lot of popularity in the two-wheeler market. In India, the Interceptor is the most affordable multi-cylinder big bike. Speaking of affordability, prices of the Interceptor start at Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Its chief rivals include Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Kawasaki Z650.
Design and Features
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 comes with a round headlamp, twin-pod instrument cluster, teardrop shaped fuel tank with monza-style fuel cap for retro feel. Royal Enfield has gone ahead with a very straightforward design approach which gels well with the overall character of the motorcycle. The instrument cluster is also quite basic. You get an analogue speedo and tacho, a digital inset which houses an odometer, fuel gauge and two trip meters. There’s no range indicator or any gear position indicator either, which is standard now, at least at this price point. Fit and finish is considerably better than Royal Enfield’s other products, and is on par with what’s reasonably expected.
Braking and Handling
The Interceptor 650 is built on a twin-cradle tubular steel frame developed with Harris Performance, a subsidiary of Eicher. Compared to the Continental GT 535’s double cradle frame, this one has higher torsional stiffness, which is quite apparent while flicking the motorcycle around corners. Suspension components include 41mm forks with 110mm travel and twin shock absorbers at the rear, offering 88mm travel. The 18-inch aluminium alloy spoke rims on both ends are shod in 100/90 front and 130/70 rear Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres that have been developed specifically for this motorcycle.
Interestingly, Royal Enfield has revealed the kerb weight, but the value is without fuel. Despite weighing 202kg, the motorcycle feels quick on its feet. Straight line stability is commendable too, thanks to the 1400mm wheelbase.
Safety and Features
Apart from the standard dual-channel ABS, the motorcycle is devoid of any electronic aids. For braking, it employs a 320mm front and a 240mm rear disc.
