Recently Asked User Questions

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 have slipped disc and tail bone/sciatic pains .. you know how bad it can get. But I can tell you, on a normal day the Interceptor has never caused any issues or never till date have I had any issues because of the seating position on the Interceptor. I can't speak for Himalayan, I am sure it's meant for touring and expect that to be equally comfortable or more. With Interceptor, you cant go wrong that much I could tell trust me.
  • The Interceptor 650 will marginally have a better seating posture than the Himalayan and hence should give less back pain.But eventually it depends on whether you will utilise the motorcycle for city rides for which Interceptor is best or for off roading for which Himalayan is best.Hope this helps! Happy riding!

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.

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!
  • Don't take bro...recently i hv sold my conti gt 650,,,,engine will roast like you hell in summer season,wrist pain,pelvi pain due to seat thickness is lyk very poor,,,thigh support poor,,,i am having riding experience of 15 year,,,bhai save your money royal ke naam pe idiotic design dete...means lyk riding comfort metror 350 is hv great...

    The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a bike that combines classic design with modern performance, making it a great choice for riders who enjoy a stylish machine for cruising, relaxed riding, and occasional twistier roads. Talking about the safety it provides disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels provide strong stopping power. It offers a neutral, upright riding posture that is comfortable for relaxed cruising and long rides. While its fuel efficiency is low as compared to its competitors

    power no doubt, but looks is just ok 

    " The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is magnificently charismatic and attractive as ever, this motorcycle deserves a high note from riders. By torquey parallel twin engine, the bike proves having a truthful nature of such patterns, among them is playful at rough and accords the rider with a comfy and enjoyable experience. The people earn laurels for the instrument because of its good seating, retro design, and both dual-channel ABS and slipper clutch, which are modern. Nevertheless, some riders point out that vibrations at higher speeds need to be addressed and propose fuel-efficiency enhancements for longer trips. Follow-up: Ensuring that these issues get resolved should be a priority for manufacturers if they want to ensure that these vehicles gain a wide acceptance and commercial use."

    Perfect engine 

    Royal Enfield super meteor 650 offers a very relaxed ride and the seat design is very good. It is a long distance ride bike and the comfort is the top notch but the suspension gives firm ride. The engine is perfectly suited to this bike with smooth and great performance also on the top end but it is a very heavy bike. The sound and feel of this bike is great and gives around 25 kmpl of mileage and the handling of this bike is pretty nice with good fun and is a well behaved bike in the corners.
