User Reviews of Comparison

  • Royal Enfield Interceptor 650
  • A fun filled thrilling ride, its great joy at canyon carvings. Breeze on highway and easy in city rides even. A great value for money product with superior quality hardware and certainly that 650 cc twin cylinder engine is a gem. Having 25 kmpl out of most of my highway rides. Service cost is so feasible and even service period is longer compared to any other bike in its price range. In comparison with Interceptor Conti GT adds on its sporty feel. Happy Riding 😊

    Kevin Kevin few weeks ago
  • Overall it's good, but more power could have been taken out from a 650 cc engine, which will reduce the mileage for sure😋

    Vishal Chauhan few weeks ago

  • I booked intercepter 650 colour is Baker Express and as per dealer they will be able to deliver the bike in Jan 2020 end. whatever information I have gather through YouTube videos ... it's looks with minor change which need to be done after delivery.I am looking for better headlight reason being headlight isn't matching what rest of the bike is offering and I believe Thunderbird headlight would have been awesome additions and seat which is not great as per the bike standards.. so looking for seat changes with better qauilty for sure.

  • Very Good Bike , The money you pay for the vehicle has value. Ride, Breaking are exceptionaly good. What I don't like is the head light which is not powerful and it should be modified. Also tail lamp they should change it to LED. Royal Enfield should come out with mag wheels for this bike.
