    Comparing this two bikes completely depends on your liking. Both are completely different bikes. 500 is a thumper whereas 650 is a twin that rumbles and won't satisfy the thumper enthusiasts. But 650 is a better bike, having a better engine, a better quality and having a better engineered bike overall. The rumbling sound plays a symphony to the ears. There's this rumble and then there's burble especially when you are doing down hill. The weight is felt only while lifting the bike from the stand and it vanishes the moment the bike moves. So weight may only be a concern for a very light weight person. For a normal person weight factor won't matter. In fact riding a 650 feels more easy than riding a 350 classic.BDW, 202 kgs is dry weight and the fuel weight will add to it!

    Definitely weight matters . Interceptor 650 is 10 kg more than its predecessors Classic 500 Or Classic 350. Moving in rear is a problem or strain the situation may arise in tight parking for that park the bike in nose up position.Always move the bike while sitting on the bike. Bikes till 110 kg weight is easier to handle. No major difference in handling between RE 350 & Interceptor 650.

    Prashant, the Interceptor is in a class of its own. I would not compare it to any other Enfield bike at the present time. Yes, an average built guy can handle this bike easily.
