    Q. If budget is not a constraint, should one buy int 650 or meteor 350? considering i will be using the bike 50% of the time in city and rest 50% on highways.ps: I like the features provided and the body of the meteor 350 but really like the ride quality of int 650.?
    • Apart from the budget, both bikes belong to different segments and have different characteristics. If we talk about Meteor, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. The lack of oil leaks or missing parts over our 800km stint makes the package more joyous. The healthy fuel efficiency, 10,000km oil-change intervals and 5000km/6 month service inspections make it more endearing. So, this Royal Enfield fulfills the promise made by the Thunderbird many years ago. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. On the other hand, if we talk about Interceptor 650, with this pricing, Royal Enfield has delivered an exceptional value-for-money product like none other. Small issues, like no clear lens for the headlight or wide exhaust layout, or the narrow and soft seat, can be overlooked or fine-tuned. This is virtually half the price of the Harley Street 750 and it sits precariously close to the KTM 390 Duke, the Austrian being just four grand cheaper. Hence, with this pricing strategy, Royal Enfield is giving you a class product that seems to be built more solidly than anything it has ever produced. It is not as premium or modern in many aspects, but this motorcycle has brought back the joys of simple motorcycling - just what Royal Enfield set out to achieve. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    • Int 650 will better. all the features of meteor will be available as options in the mean time.
    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.
