Planning to buy a Royal Enfield Motorcycle? Check out the Aug 2022 price list here.

 

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Price:

Royal Enfield offers the Interceptor 650 in a bunch of new colour schemes along with a couple of already-existing ones. The base Orange Crush, Canyon Red, and Ventura Blue retail at Rs 2,88,815. The mid-spec Downtown Drag, Sunset Strip, and Baker Express cost Rs 2,97,229. The top-end chromed-out Mark 2 colour variant will set you back by Rs 3,14,682 (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

 

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Features:

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 comes with a twin-pod analogue instrument cluster with a digital inset that shows the odometer, along with dual tripmeter readings, and the fuel level. The lighting system on the Interceptor is an all-bulb one. We would have liked it if Royal Enfield had included at least an LED tail lamp along with a gear position indicator. As far as safety is concerned, the bike gets a dual-channel ABS as standard. For a more relaxed riding stance, it comes with an easy-to-reach braced handlebar, mid-set footpegs, and a bench seat.

 

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Engine:

The new BS6-compliant motorcycle remains mechanically unchanged. There is a negligible 0.2PS drop in power, now rated at 47.45PS. The peak torque remains the same, at 52Nm, and the engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission along with an assist and slipper clutch. Thanks to the counterbalancer, the 648cc parallel twin air-cooled motor is refined even while cruising at triple-digit speeds on the highway.

 

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Suspension and Brakes:

The bike employs a double-cradle frame linked to a telescopic front fork and a pair of gas-charged preload-adjustable rear shock absorbers. Braking is via a 320mm front and a 240mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS as standard. The motorcycle rolls on spoke wheels shod with a 100-section front and 130-section rear, both tubed tyres from Ceat. At 202kg without fuel, the bike is on the heavier side.

 

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Rivals:

The Interceptor 650 competes against the Kawasaki Z650. For its price, you could also get the Kawasaki Ninja 300, KTM 390 Duke, and the KTM RC 390.

Interceptor 650 Expert Review

Like all two-wheelers, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 too underwent the BS6 transformation. The update brought about a reworked motor and seemingly nothing more than a price hike of around Rs 9,000. Royal Enfield’s flagship motorcycle offered excellent value in BS4 trim, but does the same hold true for the new Interceptor 650 BS6? 

Design and Features

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 BS6 remains cosmetically unchanged. It still looks like a 70’s motorcycle with round headlamps, a twin-pod instrument console, flat seat and chrome mudguard. The Interceptor 650 might not have the road presence of the Classic 350, but it sure looks impressive if you are into retro motorcycles. Even more impressive are the six colour options: Orange Crush, Glitter and Dust, Ravishing Red, Mark Three, Silver Spectre and Baker Express. Out of these, the Baker Express colour option stands out but we feel Royal Enfield should have used the BS6 transition to introduce more colours. 

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

The paint quality is top notch as are the fit and finish levels with clean welds and straight panel gaps. The switchgear plastics and buttons feel robust and built to last. Royal Enfield also offers a host of accessories to do up the Interceptor your way. 

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

Overall, the Interceptor 650 remains a good looking motorcycle with no changes to quality as well as fit and finish levels. If it were not for the badge, you could easily mistake it for something out of Honda’s classic lineup.

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6: Road Test Review

Despite BS6 restrictions, the Interceptor’s power output remains unchanged. That said, there is a slight change in the engine tune which seems to result in a slight drop in acceleration times. Post update, the motor feels more refined and free revving than before, although top-end performance appears to have been toned down. In the 0-60kmph acceleration run, the BS6 bike is 0.21 seconds slower than its BS4 predecessor. In the 100kmph run, it takes 0.47 seconds more than the BS4 Interceptor to crack the ton. In the real world, the slight power deficit is only felt when you are cruising at triple-digit speeds.

  Interceptor BS6 Interceptor BS4
30-70kmph (3rd Gear) 4.02 seconds 3.90 seconds
40-80kmph (4th Gear) 4.94 seconds 4.85 seconds

The motor retains its tractable nature and you can easily ride around town in a gear higher than you normally would without the need to shift often. Out on the highway, the engine feels flexible and offers excellent mid-range performance. The only noticeable difference at higher speeds is that you take a few more seconds to overtake that truck ahead.

City 25.93kmpl 25.35kmpl
Highway 26.82kmpl 33.17kmpl

The gear ratios remain unchanged and you can still do 120kmph in the BS6 Interceptor all day with the rev counter pointing at a steady 5000rpm. Its light clutch actuation, thanks to a slip-and-assist system, also helps while riding in bumper to bumper traffic. While city fuel efficiency remains on par with its BS6 predecessor, the BS6 Interceptor is significantly more fuel efficient on the highway. With a 13.4-litre fuel tank, you are looking at a range of around 450km.

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

The underpinnings remain unchanged in the BS6 Interceptor 650 and that's not a bad thing. Developed by Harris Performance, the frame traces its origins to the sweet handling Continental GT 535. The suspension is set up on the softer side and takes away some of the motorcycle’s agility. It works well when shown wide, sweeping corners but takes time and effort to change directions. The Interceptor 650 BS6 continues to get Pirelli Phantom SportComp tyres. These touring-spec tyres offer good grip on straight dry roads but do not inspire confidence while cornering. While the Interceptor isn't a sharp handler, it feels planted at high speeds and that makes it more adept at touring. In the city, the handlebar feel is a bit on the heavier side and you are always aware that you are riding a heavy motorcycle. 

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

The soft suspension setup, coupled with the large 18-inch tyres, helps the Interceptor glide over uneven road and bridge joints over high speeds. It, however, bottoms out easily when confronted with sharp road edges or potholes. The rear twin shock absorbers send jolts up your backside every time it bottoms out. A firmer suspension setup would have helped here. Despite the suspension bottoming out easily, we did not have any issues with the Interceptor scraping its underbelly on speed breakers even with a pillion on board.

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

 

While the braking setup has remained unchanged, we were surprised to record dismal braking figures on the Interceptor BS6 when compared to its BS4 predecessor. The older bike offered a strong and progressive brake bite which was missing on our test bike. Given that both motorcycles use the same ByBre dual-piston front calipers, double-H sintered brake pads, steel braided brake lines and dual-channel ABS, we would chalk up this anomaly to the Interceptor BS6’s brakes not being bedded in properly.

Safety and Features

Royal Enfield has taken the retro diktat seriously with the Interceptor BS6. Its halogen headlamp now gets a clear lens with a small LED DRL at the bottom. The headlamp offers even more focussed lighting and a wider beam spread. It continues to use a bulb tail lamp and turn indicators.

Royal Enfield Interceptor BS6 Road Test Review

The unchanged twin-pod instrument console gets a digital insert that displays fuel level, an odometer, and two trip meters. The basic instrument console could benefit from the inclusion of a gear position indicator, clock, and distance-to-empty reading.
