Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Highlights

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.

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.

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.

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. I have crossed 4700 km only.

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.
