    Changing the stock exhaust would def help reduce heat but make sure the fuel map is correct if the bike is too lean it might overheat. Also if you check the engine oil temp if it is above 170 degrees it would help a lot to use a much larger oil cooler and also use synthetic oil. A motorcycle, set up correctly, shouldn't run hot at idle. If the oil is over 200 degrees using your infrared thermometer then you would def benefit from a larger cooler. Remember manufacturers set up bikes to benefit THEM (ie overheat, lose compression, have to be overhauled, etc) NOT usually to benefit YOU. I had a friend has a BMW 1000cc bike it ran 170 temp stock. My Triumph bonneville was running 230. I changed radiator for one 300% larger and voila! Now my Triumph runs 170 like it should. On your air cooler bike you would change the oil cooler, same difference.

    Interceptor is a 650 CC twin cylinder motorcycle. It is expected to heat up more that the smaller capacity bikes we are use to.There has never been an incident where fuel has caught fire due to the engine heat. There are production motorcycles with three times the engine capacity, and I have never heard of a risk of fire due to the engine heat.

    It’s a 650cc engine provided by air - oil cooling. It is expected to get heated up specifically if we are using in city because no enough wind to cool down the engine. Moreover they have provided heat sensors to monitor heat with ECU. If over heated vehicle will stop. Then wait for 15 mins it will cool down then we can continue. But if your engine turns off frequently due to heat better check with service centre.

  • good experience and good comfort

    Showcased with many uncountable benefits, the royal enfield interceptor 650 is a cool and amazing model. It has distinguishing features and functions that makes it stand apart from the other ktm models. It is a tad bit expensive but its worth the quality and features that it comes with. The ground clearance is good. The mileage is good and the powerful engine provides a good amount of cc. I would definitely recommend this bike.

  • Heavy duty bike

    Royal Enfield interceptor 650 comes with a classy old school design and good build quality. it has a 650 cc engine which is much powerful than other bikes in this segment which gives decent mileage of 25-30 kmpl. the fit and finishing is perfect and the sitting posture is comfortable. body weight is little bit heavy which makes it difficult to handle at low speed. overall beside the pricing and body weight I am satisfied with this bike

  • Low price high power

    My best buy in life Interceptor 650 gives me a better ride quality with good to handle and is the most affordable 650 cc bike in india. With the refined engine the power delivery is exciting and i feel it is better than Continental GT 650 but the features are less. The power and weight is very high of this bike and the mileage is around 25 kmpl but at high speed it feels heavy. The torque is amazing and there is no bike with this level at this price.

  • The machine was to cool to

    The machine was to cool to ride in cities as well as highway.The thump of the machine was awesome.In 650 cc segment this is the best machine with that price.
