Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Highlights
Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Price: Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 prices start at Rs. 2.56 lakh (Ex-Showroom). Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is available in 1 variants and 6 colours.
Interceptor 650 Engine and Specifications: At its heart is an all-new 648cc parallel twin, counterbalanced engine with air- and oil-cooling. Producing 47.6PS @ 7100rpm, and 52Nm @ 5200rpm, power is transferred to the rear wheel via a new 6-speed transmission with assist and slipper clutch. Though the engine is reasonably modern, the motorcycle has run-of-the-mill underpinnings: telescopic forks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. A large 320mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS are offered as standard.
Interceptor 650 Design and Features
The Interceptor is Royal Enfield’s first twin-cylinder motorcycle alongside the Continental GT 650. The motorcycle is a modern iteration of its forefather with the same name that was sold in the ‘60s. Royal Enfield has tuned the ergonomics to be comfortable enough for long distance touring. At 13.7 litres, the Interceptor gets a fuel tank that’s 1.2-litre bigger than the Continental GT. Instrumentation is a twin-pod, analogue-digital combo cluster. However, you only get access to basic information. You get a speedometer, odometer, twin trip meters and fuel gauge apart from the tell-tale lights. In terms of design, the bike exudes the ideology of function over form. The side panels and the fuel tank are simple-looking. However, a neat vintage addition on the tank is the Monza-style fuel cap. The bench seat looks simple and functional, while the twin upswept chromed exhausts dominate the rear half of the motorcycle.
Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Competitors
Harley-Davidson Street 750: Harley’s entry-level motorcycle, the Street 750, looks like a proper no-compromise American cruiser. The raked-out front forks along with the headlight cowl gives the motorcycle a sporty appeal, while the fat rear tyre is in line with what’s expected of a cruiser. A boon for shorter riders are the low seat height and centre of gravity. Matching the show with the go is a liquid-cooled, 750cc Revolution-X engine. Coming to the brakes, front and rear discs with dual-channel ABS is standard. The Street 750 is priced at Rs 5.31 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
Kawasaki Vulcan S : The Vulcan S is Kawasaki’s most affordable cruiser in the Indian market. Priced at Rs 5,48,400, the motorcycle is slightly dearer than the Harley but gets a sweet-sounding liquid-cooled parallel twin motor derived from the Ninja 650. The motorcycle looks properly modern, and its curvy design is further accentuated by the stubby, blacked-out, two-to-one exhaust. Kawasaki also offers a forward or rearward biased footpegs to suit riders of different stature.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Interceptor 650

- For short rides only. : By Abuzar | 1 week ago
- Yes but not at all comfortable : By Uppiliappan | 4 months ago
- A sports bike would be very uncomfortable for you due to the seating position.. An RE interceptor would be a better alternative. : By Manoj | 3 days ago
- Himalayan is the best & INT 650 is also fine : By Uppiliappan | 3 days ago
- My reason is that I was looking for a multi-cylinder motorcycle and this offered the best value for money among all that were available. The next alternative was almost twice as expensive, so the choice was easy. Besides, this does not have the bullet DNA. This is a motorcycle that is designed fresh and build new from the ground up, with considerable contribution from RE UK and also Harris performance. Also has the latest tech like FE, Slipper Clutch and dual channel ABS. Cant ask for more at this price. : By Manoj | 3 days ago
- I will answer in my point of view . Why i purchased INT 650 because very good indigenous manufactured retro styled , performance bike with fair mileage & Cost efficient maintenance package he best service network. Plus i cant afford even basic versions Harley Davidson , Ducati , BMW . : By Uppiliappan | 3 months ago
- Super build quality, very good handling, even in city traffic, and at an unbeatable price! It's up there with the great super bikes! : By Harsha | 2 months ago
- Motorcycles are inherently dangerous. When the bikes get bigger, they are more like cars on 2 wheels which makes it even more dangerous, with the engine heat, weight, power and speed,all contributing to the danger element. Riding a motorcycle is fun provided you take the necessary precautions, and riding gear is what you start with. Bottom line.. Good Shoes which cover the ankle, helmet and gloves are absolutely necessary. Anything additional is added protection. Don't compromise on safety. Be a responsible rider. : By Manoj | 6 days ago
- Dear Arun, It is not at all a good idea to ride with slippers although it is possible,For your own safety I advise you to ride with proper riding gear to protect yourself. : By Shivraj | 2 months ago
- No not at all. Firstly it is against traffic rules, secondly danger of slipping in case of emergency braking and chances for burning of your foot with hot silencer. : By Ashok | 2 months ago
- Himalayan is best for touring because of excellent suspension setup & Brakes. . INT 650 has a weak front suspension & worst Rear Brake which acts like drum brake not ABS (Un-trustable rear brake). Plus it cannot handle very rough roads . Priority pillion rider cannot be accommodated for touring. INT 650 has a powerful engine & Gearbox mounted Retro looking in a inferior quality components filled bike. It will thrill you in short bursts & Rides in good roads. : By Uppiliappan | 1 week ago
- Nope. Its a pure street bike with limited travel suspensions. You may want to consider something like the Triumph Tiger. The upcoming KTM 390 Adventure will also be a good option if you are looking for something slightly cheaper. : By Manoj | 1 week ago
- Or You can go for Himalayan! : By Sourav | 1 week ago
- Wired, and its a bit hard too. : By Manoj | 2 weeks ago
- Wired. : By Arun | 2 months ago
- Wired..slipper assist clutch : By Mriganka | 4 months ago
- Don't let height keep you from getting onto a bike, once you get going you get used to it. And with time you can figure out how to use just one foot to get the job done. for instance - while pushing the bike back while sitting on it takes effort. just hop off and push it back. So, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.

- The bare minimum height to handle interceptor will be 5.6 ft , But person in 5.4 should use boots , Alter seat to handle the bike. The weight of the person driving at least should be 60kg + because the bike is 210 kg.Test drive the bike as much you can to find it suits you Most important you should be passionate to ride a 650 CC the bike. If so the bike is for you. : By Uppiliappan | 6 months ago
- Height of rider is not very important seat height of this bike is less than Himalayan and I have seen so many person of your height driving both the bikes comfortably .Just keep in mind weight of bike which is around 200 kgs but on road very balanced performence. : By Ashok | 5 months ago
- A 648cc parallel-twin motor with a 270-degree crank which gave the ideal starting point for this new generation of Enfield. Output figures of 47.65PS at 7250rpm and 53Nm at 5250rpm aren’t dazzling to say the least, but it will delight those who are upgrading from Enfield’s singles, especially the 350s. A 4-valve head helps the engine burn fuel more efficiently while a counterbalance shaft is also thrown into the mix to reduce vibrations. And this has paid dividends, as there are no vibrations to speak of; not even a hint of buzziness at any rpm whatsoever. For the first time in Royal Enfield’s history, you get a six-speed transmission with a slip-and-assist clutch. Shift action is extremely smooth with one hardly requiring the clutch for quick upshifts. Needless to say, clutch action is light and there’s no strain on your left hand even in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Considering it weighs 200 plus kilos with fuel on board, the performance figures are pretty impressive. 0-60kmph takes 2.87 seconds, while the 0-100kmph dash is done in 6.54 seconds. To put that in perspective, it’s actually 0.1 second quicker to sixty and 0.4 seconds slower to hundred than the more torquey Harley-Davidson Street 750. Nearly 80 per cent of the Interceptor’s torque is available from 2500rpm and begins to taper off at around the 6000rpm mark. Therefore, it does manage impressive in-gear acceleration figures. The 30-70kmph run in third gear is completed in 3.9 seconds, while it takes 4.85 seconds for the 40-80kmph run in fourth gear. Here’s where the Street 750 has a distinct edge. However, when compared to something like the performance-oriented KTM 390 Duke, the Interceptor is just a whisker away. It shines on the highway too. Slot the bike into sixth gear and you are able to pull off from speeds as low as 50kmph, all the way up to 170kmph. Yes, it cracks the ton (British term for doing 100mph, roughly equating to 160kmph) but you will need to brave the strong windblast that you will experience due to the upright seating position and lack of aerodynamics. We found that cruising at around 120kmph, with the revs hovering around the 5k mark, the Interceptor sings a sweet tune. A fuel efficiency figure of 26kmpl in both city and highway is fairly decent for a motorcycle of its size and cubic capacity. With a range of close to 350km, thanks to the 13.7-litre fuel tank, the Interceptor will be more than happy to go cross country. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
- Interceptor is very good in Performance. Good Braking. Driving position is good. Standard seat is hard for long drives.Pillion seating is not comforta ble because of elevated foot pegs. Heating is little bit in high city driving conditions. Suspension is bouncy making thud noise in little bad & Very bad roads . Suspension is Very Good in highways. Interceptor is definitely not a zero vibration bike. It is creating vibration in foot peg areas , Side of the fuel tank & Minor development started in handle bar area. Fuel gauge is improper/inaccurate it shows error reading we have to manually check by opening the tank. Engine RPM some times improper in idling glides up & Down. : By Uppiliappan | 9 months ago
- Interceptor performance in terms of power, pickup, balance is good but some point needs to be addressed like uncomfortable seating position (riding position very aggressive) not advisable for long riding without modification.Handle bar riding posture also towards engine means complete stress you body like shoulder, back, arm.Breaking ratio with engine also having as issue while you ridding more than 120 km/hrs, engine have more power w.r.t. break.Little bit issue for short ridder also, may Royal Enfield team work on it on some cosmetic changes. : By Krishan | 4 months ago
- As per the user manual it seems to be BS-IV(or BS4) and not BS-VI(or BS6). @Zigwheels so are you trying to say that it is BS-VI READY? : By Tushar | 3 months ago

- Not a complete off-roader but you can do pretty well in irregular tracks and roads , An all-rounder machine it is :) : By Gowri | 2 months ago
- What is a ladies foot rest? I am a lady, and I use the footpegs it comes with. Ladies' feet are very similar to men's feet - we don't need special footrests. : By Bronwyn | 2 months ago

- The vehicle design is not for single side sitting. My advice pl don't allow the pillion ride to sit one it very dangerous for pillion rider because of Sharp pickup , Dual ABS . Moreover It is not possible because of elevated exhaust. : By Uppiliappan | 9 months ago

Riding my classic 350 was a great experience. I used to cruise on it and most of the times the torque, the seat the engine were all adequate. Then came the interceptor and it just took one test ride to realise what I was missing. On 27 Nov 2018 my satisfied life just turned upside down and got intercepted by the interceptor. I booked it then and there as I had no other way of achieving nirvana again. I booked the ravishing red colour but changed it to Orange crush as that was being delivered faster. I was told a waiting period of 120 days (and nights). Time was passing by I was riding my classic 350 as usual and having a jolly good time dreaming about my very own interceptor. You tube kept me sane as there were plethora of interceptor videos available to keep me occupied. On republic day I was going about my business as usual and I got a call from cruiser motors Dwarka that my interceptor is on its way and should reach by 27th Jan. I was pleasantly surprised and we decided that at 1400 hrs on 27 Jan,19 I will upgrade to interceptor. The PDI went well. After doing all the formalities I finally got the key at 1600 hrs. I rode it back happily. I was instructed to use only extra premium/ speed petrol and never to fill the tank to the brim. Keep tyre pressure as 32 in front and 36/39 in rear. Also not to ride the bike more than 75-80 for first 2000 kms ( lot of patience needed). I have been using it for daily 38 km commute to office and on weekend around city drives and a few tours of three to five days/1500-3000 kms. I have completed 9000 kms ( boy, have they been good!!). I have following observations -:Pros1. The bike is butter smooth. It has negligible vibrations.2. Engine delivers power in a smooth manner ( ps: its no KTM 390or even apache 300).3. Great road presence.4. Very relaxed engine ( due to low compression ratio of 1:9.5) 5. Absolutely no heat issues even in exteme bumper to bumper traffic. Just a warm breeze on your legs. It does misses on low speed in very extreme traffic and hot conditions due to engine heating.6. An all-rounder bike. Excellent on highways and quite manageable in city.Cons1. Rider footpegs have an ergonomic problem. ( It takes time to get used to).2. Tank feels a little thin to hold.( Solutions are available, keep reading to find out mine).3. Seat is absolutely pathetic. Even in city ride of 18 kms/ 30 mins it is uncomfortable. ( Got it modified from karol bagh. Added a little foam next to thighs, and got a pillion raise and guess what, My footpeg and tank issue went away to quite some extent. ( Now I can live with them).4. The clutch gap keeps increasing on its own. ( The clutch wire is touching the meters console and every time you turn the handle right it rubs and rolls resulting in automatic movement of clutch adjusting screw next to lever) FIX- tighten the screw to the max and adjust the clutch gap full and final from adjustment screws on the crank case.5. Two massive silencers keep geeting scratched especially the left one. Innocent auto walas especially do that.Service cost1. Got the first service done at 501 kms.2. Only oil change and basic checks and adjustments.3. Took four hours for service.4. Total cost : Rs 2675 only.5. Next service at 10000 or 1 year whichever happens earlier.Milleage. Overall 25 kmpl. Best 32 and worst 18.8 ( with normal fuel) otherwise 23 (with extra premium).
I own a Interceptor (got it in December). Like most people, my bike also had issues with hard clutch and that tak tak sound since after the first service.I visited #TeknikMotorcycles Sarjapur, #Bangalore couple of times for this issue and they couldn"t fix it. Lately, clutch became too hard to even shift gears, so I called RE officials and they sent an engineer to Teknik Service center to look after the issue. Some friends had suggested me that it"s a clutch play issue so it can be fixed easily. But engineer said they will deliver the bike in few hours.Now it has been 6 days and my bike is still at the service center. Everyday I have to chase them to get an update and they give me shocking reason.What they told me is,Day 1: Local engineers couldn"t understand the problem so they have called engineers from the plant.Day 2: Plant engineers are checking the issue.Day 3: Plant engineers have called for a meeting and doing some R&D.Day 4: They have decided to change the original clutch parts etc.Day 5: Waiting for clutch parts to arrive from Chennai plant.Day 6 (today): They have found some abnormalities in the clutch play and connected areas in engine so they are seeking an approval to change the #Engine.Whaaaat!!! Why is that required? I don"t know if I should be worried to hear this now. They are asking for another 3 days again for more R&D and testing.I don"t understand what kind a joke is this. Royal Enfield has been promoting twins by saying that they have been working on these bikes for 10 years. I mean this is what they worked upon in 10 years?I was so happy with the bike but getting to know these things are worrying me. Cost of this bike is not less. Its just right amount for this bike. Its just the engine is powerful, otherwise quality seem to be very low.
Interceptor is very good in Performance. Good Braking. Driving position is good. Standard seat is hard for long drives.Pillion seating is not comfortable because of elevated foot pegs. Heating is little bit in high city driving conditions. Suspension is bouncy making thud noise in little bad & Very bad roads . Suspension is Very Good in highways. Interceptor is definitely not a zero vibration bike. It is creating vibration in foot peg areas , Side of the fuel tank & Minor development started in handle bar area. Fuel gauge is improper/inaccurate it shows error reading we have to manually check by opening the tank. Engine RPM some times improper in idling glides up & Down.Heating in engine is tolerable it bakes our leg. in highways also. Latest happenings in my INT 650 i had problem in T-Stem i took it to the service center they replaced with , New T-Stem , Front Struts , Front Rim , Abnormal Engine noise was prevailing in my INT 650 All 8 Engine values changed on warranty . Still excessive engine noise is in my bike & bonus whistle sound intolerable. I have again informed the RE service. They assured to sort it out. The INT 650 is still a beta product . We should go to mediation course to control our patience. But riding pleasure is good. Today On 25.09.2019 my bike crossed 7000 km. The engine noise is abnormal still waiting for RE to sort our. My rear ABS is not functioning properly 60 % ineffective. Serviced the rear brake twice . Still problem. The surprise is RE is hesitating a lot change parts in warranty. It drags the issue for weeks .Pushes the customer frequent visits to workshop. RE has to sort out , Value noise & Clattering noise in INT 650. The front suspension & T-Steam is not strong enough . RE might recall INT 650 for a massive part change campaign.
The most refined and powerful engine till date from the RE stables. Beautiful looking classic retro styled twin engine machine. Low on vibrations and high on performance. In some ways it's a blank canvas begging to be accessorized. The aftermarkets industry must be going nuts. To be fair RE has some good accessories up for sale with the promise of more in the pipeline. On the downside are seating ergonomics (obviously subjective),placement of footpegs, pillion comfort or lack of and vendor quality control.
Apart from its phenomenal value for money proporsition. This bike offer phenomenal breaking power despite 202 kg heavy and it feel heavy only when its stand stil but once it start moving it become nimble.Once you twist the throttle it just drag you with pleasantly good force.further, its seating is good for daily commute but you will face problem in long hoirs on saddle...Icing on cake is its deep rumble rumble sound ,its exceptional.Overall i am loving this beast brought back again by royal enfield
Since features are basic and I wanted alot more from it. But It gave room to add upgrades for you.
Excellent engine with FE and slipper clutch. Brakes are reasonably good and has dual channel ABS. Seat is painfully uncomfortable. Footrest comes in the way when you put your feet down.
ITS THE BEST LOOKING RETRO STYLED MOTORCYCLE UNDER 3L IN INDIA. ENGINE IS ITS CORE SELLING ASPECT , ITS RELAXED RIDING POSTURE MAKES CRUISING ROADS VERY EASY. OVERALL ITS THE BEST BIKE FOR DAILY COMMUTING AND LONG TOURS
A superb machine from royal Enfield 🤗👌
smooth engine nice to ride. nice pickup climbs hills very well
