Editor's View of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650
Most affordable multi-cylinder bike in India, Power delivery is linear and friendly but still exciting, Extremely refined.
Not the most feature packed, Uncomfortable pillion ergonomics, Rear suspension is set up a bit too soft.
Surprisingly, the Interceptor 650 feels less like a Royal Enfield and more like a 90’s Honda -- such is the refinement level and performance on offer. The motor is a gem with loads of torque from the get go and a nice soundtrack accompanying it. Quality and fit and finish levels are quite good and the motorcycle feels built to last. This is easily the best Royal Enfield out there.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Interceptor 650
- Yes definitely. My classic DS' fuel pump failed thrice under running of 8000 km. Very sad.
- NO,GOOD QUALITY BUILD MATERIALS ARE USED IN THE BIKE
- Not at all if the fuel is good.
- As of now, Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is the option you can go for because Kawasaki Ninja 300 has not been launched yet. With just a slight hint of forward arching, the riding posture of the Interceptor is what will make Royal Enfield loyalists happy. The bars are wide and you do not have to stretch much to get to them. However, shorter riders may just find it a bit too much. The saddle height of 804mm is favorable for most riders but they will need to get used to the slightly outward footpegs. At crawling speeds or while slowing down with your feet down, the footpegs tend to hit your ankles and this could be a nuisance the first time around. Although slightly rear set, they feel quite natural, a big boon for city as well as highway riding. The seat padding is extremely soft and narrow. While you will not feel the effects during city commute, it does take a bit of a toll on you on the highway. Royal Enfield offers an optional touring seat with a thicker foam setup which should ideally solve this issue. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
- I own a classic 350 sliver for more than 5 years which clocked around 60k + kms. so I'm looking for a powerful upgrade this year when this pandemic ends. I love the lower acceleration in RE 350. but I'm missing the middle and top end acceleration so I want a bike which satisfies my riding fantasies. I'm a broad shouldered and tall person. so I'm looking for a beefy muscled up vehicle with good allrounding acceleration performance, durable and value for money like INT 650. Thanks for the suggestion sanjay.Have a happy riding!!
- Both the sports bike and the RE Interceptor 650 are suitable for your height.Depends whether you want fast speeds and faster rate of acceleration which is in a sports bike or a Retro Bike which can consistently ride at 120-140 km/hr with quite good acceleration like the Interceptor 650.Hope this helps! Happy riding!
- Rather than INT 650 I have RR 310 because of its panigale looks. I feel like 390 is not beefy in size and suit my broad physic. But will give a try on that for sure. Thank you.
- Engine is same in both the bike but sitting posture is totally different in interceptor you will get straight posture as it's suitable for city and hiway rides but in GT you will get little bit lean posture as it's cafe racer look in my opinion it's not comfortable for long rides...Hope you are quite satisfied with the answer if yes then please hit the like button
- If you want long term bike then interceptor is good but if you need a short term bike then gt is the best option
- Can I put gt tank to an interceptor..coz gt tank looks good..
- I am going for interceptor, but I like the fuel tank of gt 650.. especially tat black grey..CaN the interceptor tank be replaced by gt tank.
- Yes they are tubeless tyres, but with a Tube in it. It doesn't ride tubeless since there are no alloy wheels. The wheels are spoked. As of now, they do not have alloy wheels in line to keep the retro look.
- Nope. They are tubed. Technically the tyres are tubeless, but because of the spoke wheels, they have to use a tube.
- Engine oil grade is 10W 50.Add only Elf Moto4 Tech oil recommended by Royal Enfield.Hope this helps! Happy riding!
- 10 w 50 oil grade . 3.1 liter capacity . 10,000 km service interval.
- 10 W 50 API SL ENGINE OIL -50 GRADE FOR ROYAL ENFIELD INTERCEPTER650CC.

10,000+ km driven till now. Awesome machine. Comfortable at high speed (120+ kmph) cruising.Maintenance cost average.Tyre need to change after 10-15k Kms. Around 12-14k INR.
It’s an affordable twin cylinder motorcycle in our country although performance wise very decent service cost pretty gud mileage overall worth to buy it
Performance wise i am happy about the new 650cc twin engine. Although the bike lacks features and gadgets to enjoy the experience but it makes uo for that by delivering an unforgettable riding experience.P.s. Note that the bike is the best when enjoyed with the red rooster performance exhaust.
i just love the look, really want to buy this bike
it's a great riding experience machine. on highways it feels no less than a harley Davidson.
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 .I have crossed 10,000 km now the engine noise is under control , in 10,000 km service . Rear brake is adjusted & Pads changed still ok only. RE is ready to change the caliper assembly if defective. Now a days RE is providing a very good service support.
I booked intercepter 650 colour is Baker Express and as per dealer they will be able to deliver the bike in Jan 2020 end. whatever information I have gather through YouTube videos ... it's looks with minor change which need to be done after delivery.I am looking for better headlight reason being headlight isn't matching what rest of the bike is offering and I believe Thunderbird headlight would have been awesome additions and seat which is not great as per the bike standards.. so looking for seat changes with better qauilty for sure.
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.
