    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. I am confused between Duke 390 and Interceptor 650, which one should I go for?
    • Main thing to consider is why are you buying a bike ? If you are planning for long rides and few track's you can go for duke 39O . It's a bit harsh on city riding but when ever you tap gear up it's a whole new level of fun . If you are person you wants a strong mid range power in long rides you can go for RE.incptr . If you are buying mainly for city commute then go for RE. Duke si a monster city bumber to bumper traffic naah it's bit hard for it . For 390 you have to unleash it on highways ;-)
    • Depends on your requirements. The Interceptor is a nice cruiser with plenty of power to play with. It's also extremely refined which is unlike any other RE. Although, I'd suggest you get the optional accessory seat installed which has better cushioning. Go for the Duke if you love getting your knee down. It's razor sharp handling and power from the motor will keep you on your toes, always.
    • Duke has all compact package with Quick shifter in BS6 and powered vehicle but this both r so crazy if you need to upgrade to high CC you can go to Interceptor 650 and even I want to this both has good capacity of touring vehicle. But my suggestion is if you r a beginner like after 200cc you go for 390 as well you can go a 650 but I suggest you Duke 390 is best...

    Q. Which is better, Royal Enfield Interceptor or Duke 390?
    • Hands down Duke 390.Interceptor is 650cc and you are barely able to let loose the throttle to understand the bike completely. RE doesn't have initial pick up but once it hits the mid range then it really goes like a bullet, but only when you are on a highway. For city and highway D390 is the perfect bike.
    • This is an apple and orange comparison.First decide what kind of a rider are you ?Are you someone who loves to cruise on the highway feeling the cool breeze, ride into the sunset ?Or do you just love to redline the engine like a maniac and scrape those knee pads demolishing some corners ?
    • I think if you need performance faster bike then go for Duke 390 its most powerfull bike in 400cc bike segment.But if you are a tourer then go for Enfield i think this is best bike for touring. But the duke 390 is also okay for the traveler.

    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.
