    I ride daily to office and back which is approximately 63kms. There were no 'heating' issues after the 1st service in bumper to bumper traffic. This is a 650cc air cooled twin engine and some heat is expected. I did change the stock seat to a customised seat which I dare say is near perfect for long rides. Absorbs the minor road bumps well and really soft on your behind. This is a fab bike and my take is go for it. You can customize it the way you please. If you buy Royal Enfield you've got to live with the minor issues that crop up. But these aren't deal breakers and there is always a work around. Compared to the Himalayan (I own a BS3 model) , the interceptor is a very well designed, tested and built new bike. There no vibrations whatsoever and the gear shifting is butter smooth.

    I guess people who ask about 650 knows the displacement size of the engine and any engine of that capacity is expected to get heated when it does not get enough cooling. Considering the RE 650 being an air-oil cooled engine, it should warm up as well! But its not a microwave that can be used to cook your thighs. Surprisingly and fortunately it does not heat up that much that you would consider as "heating issue"! I don't understand why people are talking about heating issue so much. One should always understand its a mid capacity tourer and commuter motorcycle and not a low displacement commuter motorcycle such as splendour. And this bike is anyways not meant for people who are stuck for daily 3 hrs of office traffic. People should know what this bike is going to be used for and set their expectations accordingly.

    I find it quite easy to ride the Interceptor 650 in heavy city traffic conditions as I have been commuting daily to my office and back.Except ride in half clutch only in the 1st gear when it is like bumper to bumper and please wear ankle boots.Hope this helps! Happy riding!

With a robust 648cc parallel twin engine, it effortlessly delivers about 47 horsepower and 52 Nm of torque makes every ride smooth and powerful. The 6 speed gearbox with its slip assist clutch allows for seamless gear transitions, enhancing the ride experience.What really stands out is its retro charm combined with modern performance.
