ROYAL ENFIELD INTERCEPTOR 650 OVERVIEW

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is one among the cruiser bikes available in India. It is available in 3 variants and 7 colors with a top variant price. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is powered by a 648cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 47 bhp and a torque of 52 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Interceptor 650 bike weighs 202 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13.7 liters.

The Interceptor is one of the two models based on the 650cc twin-cylinder platform from Royal Enfield. It is more ‘street bike’ of the two and has the wider appeal with its retro looks and comfort and the capability to carry a pillion rider as well.

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 has, at its heart, a BS6-compliant, fuel-injected 648cc parallel-twin air/oil-cooled motor that generates 46.8bhp and 52Nm. It feeds the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and chain drive. The chassis, brakes, and suspension are all modern-feeling, with all the charm that their retro looks offer. The brakes are single discs at both ends, with a 320mm disc at the front, and a 240mm disc at the rear. ABS is standard. The suspension has conventional forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear, with preload adjustment. The tyres are technically tubeless but require a tube inside as the spoked 18-inch rims are not airtight.

Instrumentation is also retro, with a twin-pod cluster housing, an analog speedo, and tachometer, with a small digital pod offering information about the fuel level, odometer, and two trip meters. In a similar vein, the lighting also offers no LEDs at all and no DRLs – a simple round headlamp does the job.

The Interceptor is available in seven different color schemes. The Standard (single tone) version includes three paint options – Canyon Red, Ventura Blue, and Orange Crush. The Custom (dual tone) variant, too, is available in three options – Downtown Drag, Sunset Strip, and Baker Express. Lastly, the Chrome variant includes an updated version of the Mark 2. The Mark 2 Chrome Interceptor is an ode to the original Interceptor 750 from the 1960s. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 competes on price with the KTM 390 Duke, although in specs, it is a lot closer to the Kawasaki Z650.
