Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Highlights

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.

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.

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.
