Triumph Street Twin vs Royal Enfield Interceptor & Is The Twin Thrice The Bike

Triumph’s Street Twin has been one of their highest selling models in recent times. For 2019, the Brits have made it cooler and surprisingly, it is more affordable for India. Hence, it is the most affordable British twin available in India. Or is it? Because Royal Enfield went big with the Interceptor 650. It is already selling like hot cakes. Why shouldn’t it? We have longed for a big Enfield for decades and our wishes came true. Royal Enfield made every single bikemaker sit up and take notice as it managed to price the Interceptor at a super accessible Rs 2.5 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. And even though the Street Twin is more affordable (by Rs 25,000 at Rs 7.45 lakh, ex-showroom India), it is still three times the amount of the Interceptor. Both bikes come with a parallel-twin motor with a 270-degree crank. While the Enfield just has 648cc to play with, the Triumph offers 250 cee cees more. This obviously gives the Street Twin an advantage in the performance numbers, 65PS vs 47PS and more importantly, 80Nm vs 52Nm.
