Q. What's the diference between bs4 and bs6 in terms of fuel economy or sound of speed? Tks
  • BS 6 adopts with , Minimum pollution , Direct injection system , Minimum exhaust noise ,
  • Probably none on the parameters you listed.
Q. I booked Interceptor 650 BS6 recently. I am 5feet 11 inches is it suitable for me, I got tempted with 4 reasons, no vibration, every 10k kilometres service, totally iron body and superb race machine with retro attire. Suggest me I have to go for it any other options in that price bracket?
  • You have a perfect height to handle INT 650. Then mileage around 27 KMPL & 210 Kg weight should not bother you. Plus front suspension & Rear ABS area below average. The best part is powerful engine mounted in a average built quality bike. Look wise great retro look. One thing you will forget all flaws when you ride it. May be in BS 6 all these issue should have been addressed by RE. No bike available in that price bracket. Most important it is not a zero vibration bike. You can feel vibration in side tank , Foot pegs.
  • I am 5'11 too and find the bike very comfortable. In fact shorter riders may have trouble due to the 804mm seat height and the long reach to the handlebars. Besides the footpegs get in the way when you put your feet down so long legs will help a bit in overcoming that too. There is no other bike in this category in this price bracket. The nearest would be a Triumph which costs almost 3 times as much!
  • Do you know when you will get the delivery of bs6 engine interceptor
Q. I own Suzuki Gixxer SF, looking forward to upgrade to RE650 Interceptor, does it have vibrations or same vibrations as of my SF. What price shall I expect for selling my SF 7k ridden 1.5 year old. Also, is it worth to upgrade to Interceptor I need a bike which sounds great and I think Interceptor does.
  • That's a good choice, You need to be wary about the Seat and lights of RE. There are a ton of aftermarket accessories for these. Just pick one of them and you should be fine. If you have owned a RE in the past, none of these matter. But looks like you are not.
  • You should to buy interceptor to ride of reading on roading an existing real climbing mountain climbing 100 most powerful bike in India
  • It's worth for the price to upgrade the interceptor
