    Q. We want to choose between Interceptor and Himalayan, which is better. Have issue of back pain.
    • I own both the Himalayan and the Interceptor and I can definitely say with authority that with the himalayan you wont have a back pain. Ride is more comfortable due to the seating posture and the seat itself. Same goes for the pillion rider as well. What you will get is a solid freaking headache considering the Himalayan has so many other issues that you get fed up spending most of your time in RE service centers. I own a BS3 model. So I hope the later models have these issues sorted. Interceptor on the hand was built for a different purpose and tall riders (5 foot 9 and above) will have problems with their back. This is because of the seating posture. But there are work arounds to this. its a great bike and is open to customization unlike the Himalayan.
    • I can vouch for the comfort that Himalayan has to offer since I have taken it to places where most other bikes would just give up. Even on tarmac the soft sprung suspension of the Himalayan is much more comfortable than the Interceptor. However, the thrill that you experience riding the Interceptor is a whole new experience . Take a test ride of both & decide for yourself . Or just wait for a few months as RE should be launching the Himalayan 650 by the end of this year & that would surely be one hell of a machine.
    • I have Interceptor, when I Test Drove Himalayan, I felt has a better riding posture & comfort, seats are best. Interceptor is for those who love the mean machines for sheer power & pickup above 90Kmph, you will get a great tremendous performance. Interceptor is a highway performer and on some rough roads. I believe Himalayan is a great package as all rounder for that price. Latest BS-4 is of great build quality. If you want a best comfort in a bike and not looking for more speed greater than 90 Kmph smoothly, then Himalayan is great. Interceptor is a blend of power & performance and a heavy weight sports champion. My suggestion is for your height, stature and your body build, you need to take a sincere unbiased test drive of both of these on a longer ride, forget the others reviews on the internet when you do a test drive and buy which suits you well, keeping in mind what exactly you want. That will give you peace of mind.

    Q. Which is better a new Interceptor or used Kawasaki Ninja 650 which I am getting at same price
    • There is a way big difference in the prices of both the bikes. Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is priced in the range of Rs. 2.64 - 2.85 Lakh(Ex-showroom price in Delhi) and Kawasaki Ninja 650 is priced at Rs. 5.89 Lakh(Ex-showroom price in Delhi). Apart from it, both bikes are of different segments too. If you are on a budget and looking for a bike with comfortable ride quality and should be enough for city commutes as well as highway long rides, you may go for Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. On the other hand, if you want a feature-loaded bike with better power performance and track-based dynamics, you may go for Kawasaki Ninja 650. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    • For racing ninja 650. for relaxed long tour interceptor
    • Both are different. Ninja is good
    Q. I am confused between Interceptor and Himalayan? mostly I am a city rider and yearly twice touring, which is suitable for me?
    • Having owned both of them I'd say that for touring the Himalayan makes sense. My only problem with the Himalayan was its lack of power or feeling that it do with some more power. I know that a lot of folks are waiting for a 650 Himalayan.Having said that a lot depends on you and your requirements. Interceptor is great as a daily commuter. You'll most probably have to tweak the handlebar and seat to get the desired riding position. Himalayan seat is excellent. Panniers etc again Himalayan. In case of the Interceptor you'll have to get suitable panniers and stays etc. Both are good and different categories so in the e d it's your call.
    • Himalayan is a all rounder Off road & Highways it performs well. Suspension set is too good say no to back pain. Interceptor is very good in highways it is the best performer & Powerful bike in royal enfield fleet. It cant off road like himalayan . Suspensiongood so no back pain issue. Because interceptor is not too comfortable in city riding. Plus their are many sensitive quality issues in ongoing models of interceptor. Like problem in T- Stem noise & Strut , Wheel wobble , Which RE might address soon. My choice is himalayan .
    • For city, Electra or Bullet 500 with ABS is best, Himalayan for touring, Interceptor is for fun as a heavy weight champion. Suggest you an unbiased test drive forgetting our reviews for a while and then decide.
