    @ Akil | Iam 5.4 feet still it is difficult for me to take it out of slanted parking,i have to get down and push the bike which feels a bit awkward

    The RE Interceptor seat height is 800 mm. So there will be difficulty for short riders, though not unsuitable. But the Benneli Leoncino 500 cc seat height is 785 mm and twin cylinder, The Triumph is even better with a seat height of just 760 mm. Leoncino delivers 47 brake horsepower and 46 newton metres of torque. The Triumph Speed Twin is a 900cc machine delivering 65 BHP and 90 newton metres of torque. however on the latter, there is bound to be a compromise in fuel economy in view of larger engine size and more expensive. But there is a bonus ! Both bikes are lighter than the Interceptor and are hoot to ride. RE is biased against short riders ! Siddhart Lal are you listening. I am short myself and ride a RE 500cc and the Triumph makes me salivate !

    Both the Benneli Leoncin0 500 cc and the Triumph Bonneville, are bikes with a seat height less than the RE Interceptor family. The Benneli has a seat hieght of 785 mm and the Bonneville speed twin is even better at 760 mm.Both are twin cylinders with engines as refined or even better than Interceptor. Benneli though offers better mileage, whereas Triumph mileage is not all the great since it has a larger 900 cc engine. Here is a bonus, both are lighter than the Interceptor by at least 10 kgs . RE is biased against shorties like me.

    The seating postures on GT is some aggressive. The leg peg is a little bit behind. And the head and upper body inclineds towards the front. For that the helmet feel more heavier, and the wind make it a little bit more difficult. For these small points, it not comfortable for 5.1ft or vice versa.

    Major problem is the fuel indicator, Highly inaccurate.Also few false neutrals are present.Overall handling and power is really nice, Plus bike has lots of character.

    Mileage is great im averaging 27kpl on highways and 22 to 23kpl in traffic.Engine performance is great as well.But the suspension especially then front forks, Need a lot of performance upgrade.My fork springs are the worst.They are very soft for the weight of the bike.I had changed the oil grade from 10w to 20w and up the oil volume to 500ml for each tube and its still soft and wobbly on corners.The bike is not very stable when cornering.Straight iine, Well i can top at around 170kph🙂.

    Bike is super engine wise.But mileage in city is hardly i am getting 18kms per liter.On highway i am getting 25 to 30kms per liter.Maintenance is too expensive for daily commute.When you are taking you turn then need to be very careful if bike lean for 20degres the you will loss the control.After 120kms per hour mirrors are use less.On 110 you can curse it without any issues.After 140 there are minimal vibrations which can control.Finally bike i can rate 4.1/5.
