  • Q. RE Interceptor 650 engine produces heat very much and I could feel it in my thighs from the petrol tank. Is it expected in this model? I am worried whether it's safe to drive when petrol tank gets heat?

    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.

    The heat must be from the engine if you have been driving for a significant amount of time below about 30kmph like in heavy city traffic.That is normal as it is a big engine and is of no concern.Hope this helps! Happy riding!

    Till the first service, it will be a little tough. And the heat gets more during idling(when you are waiting in traffic) as compression is usually higher during idling. I have been told that after 2000 km it will be significantly come down.

    A good looking machine with brilliant retro styling. Performance is nice but seat is not very comfortable. Mileage is fine. If the foot pegs position and seat comfort could be corrected it's one of the best high performance bikes.

    Bike is really good for long rides.The bad side of yhe bike is its weight and heating issue. Performance is really good but not comparable with any 650 cc bikes but with a segment of 400 cc bikes.

    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.
